    Not sure @ GA, but in SC it is illegal to carry in hospitals or any healthcare provider environment.

    1) Which Georgia Hospital? Some are private and some are govt owned.

    2) It says you are from SC? You know Georgia does NOT have reciprocity with SC?
    It looks like you also have an AZ permit, which WILL cover you in Georgia.

    Doctor's Hospital - great staff. The only time I was there, I was airlifted from Gwinnett County Med Ctr to the Doctor's Hospital burn center. Of course my weapon had to travel by mere vehicle with my wife.

    I was thinking Atlanta, and apparently y'all are talking about Augusta.

    Yes, Augusta. And MCG is Medical College of Georgia.

    I have never carried in the Augusta hospitals because we can't carry in SC hospitals and I am just used to disarming to go into one. The VA is adjacent to MCG and often I have to park in their lot to get into the MCG offices. Problem is, firearms aren't allowed even in the parking lot. Not a fan of the MCG parking garage on Harper.

    And for the record I have a NH non res so I am allowed to CC in GA.

    I haven't researched University and Doctor's yet. I tend to spend too much time in MCG as it is. Although I'd be surprised if there's any issue there.

    Am asking are there off limits to CCing? I have not seen a law saying off limits or CCing is legal. I check GeorgiaPacking.org but nothing there about hospital. The only thing i saw was for mental hospital. I know in SC is off limits just wondering about GA?

    In Georgia it depends on the individual hospital.
    Is it a private entity or is it owned or connected with a school? Is it a publicly owned/funded hospital?

    A privately owned hospital should not present any legal issues for someone wishing to carry. However, what if it is a "teaching hospital"?

    As of right now there is no clear answer, I think.

    ... MCG is fine as long as you're not an employee.
    The above might be true if you leave it in the car. The laws are fairly clear on carry at colleges and schools.
