History of Harbin Clinic:
Robert Maxwell Harbin (1864-1939) received his medical training in New York at Bellevue Medical College. He first practiced medicine in Calhoun with his father, Wylie Reeder Harbin, in 1888. Robert established his practice in Rome, Georgia, in 1894.
Dr. William Pickens Harbin (1872-1942) (“Dr. Will” received his MD from Bellevue Medical College in 1897. Robert, his brother, invited him to join the Rome-based practice where Will had first arrived in 1898. I will accept a position as an assistant surgeon in United States Army the United States soon.

Common conditions include smallpox and diphtheria and pellagra, typhoid, and tuberculosis. Diagnosis is based on active symptoms and physical findings.
Robert and Will created Harbin Hospital in 1908 with 12 beds from a converted house at the corner of Third Avenue & First Street. They established a nursing training program in 1911. In 1919, a new four-story, fireproof hospital building was constructed next to the original hospital.
The original hospital of the Harbin company was then converted into a dormitory for nurses.
Harbin Hospital also acquired an X-ray machine in 1919 and became the first hospital to offer radiation treatment for cancer.
The hospital was made taller by adding three floors in 1920. This increased the hospital’s capacity to 75 beds and made it the tallest building in Rome at that time. Modern advancements include steam heating, electric lighting, silent call systems, and hot and cold running waters in all rooms.
There are also linoleum floors and three operating theatres. A private telephone exchange is available, and an elevator takes you from the basement to your roof. The American College of Surgeons recognized the hospital as one of four Georgia hospitals that had met the standards of excellence the following year.

Robert was buried in Myrtle Hill Cemetery in 1939. By this time, there were many more Harbin doctors. William was also buried at Myrtle Hill Cemetery when he died in 1942.
Harbin Hospital was converted into a Harbin Clinic in 1948. This was done by eliminating overnight care. Floyd County Hospital, with 120 beds, was then built. The building was renovated, Harbin Clinic’s administration installed an air conditioning system, and Harbin Hospital Nursing School closed. To increase parking space, the nurses’ dormitory had to be demolished.
In 1969, the following significant change was made when the medical group purchased 8 acres (32,000m2) of Berry College.
