Magee looks forward to being associated with GPCC's more than 5,000 businesses and professionals, who exchange ideas, utilize each other's products and services, share information, help promote each other, and become involved in community enrichment projects.

Chamber activities strengthen our abilities in workforce development, which ultimately allows us to better serve those we have the privilege of caring for at Magee Rehabilitation."
