Our Concussion Facility

The Hudgens Professional Building at Gwinnett Medical Center–Duluth is home to the Concussion Institute—the first fully comprehensive concussion center in the Southeast. While the majority of concussions are sports-related, they’re much more than just sports injuries. Thus, they require a special level of dedicated care from an experienced team of concussion experts armed with the latest medical technology.

Our facility includes not only the traditional medical clinic examination rooms, but also physical therapy rooms—with advanced technology used for vestibular evaluation and treatment—and fully-equipped exertion rooms allowing for comprehensive assessment and monitoring. Our neuropsychologists have access to a variety of traditional and advanced assessment methods, including computerized neurocognitive testing that is frequently used for baseline testing and post-concussion evaluation. GMC also hosts telemedicine portals that allow our Concussion Institute specialists to provide evaluation and consultation services to other experts across the state—another way we are Transforming Healthcare.

If you or your athlete and would like to schedule an ImPACT baseline concussion screening at the Concussion Institute, call 678-312-7880.

If you are a coach or manager of a team or league seeking onsite testing, please email Maria Chininis, manager of the Concussion Institute, at mchininis@gwinnettmedicalcenter.org.
