As part of the Georgia HEART Hospital Program, Dodge County Hospital recently received $100,000 donated by Morris Bank to help support the rural community and their healthcare needs. The program’s purpose is to help financially assist rural and critical access hospitals within Georgia to increase funding and provide quality healthcare to thousands of patients state-wide.
“Morris Bank is proud to help support the healthcare needs of our neighbors in Dodge County,” says President and CEO of Morris Bank, Spence Mullis. “As we assess the past year, we couldn’t think of a more deserving industry to provide this donation to, and we are pleased to support the efforts of Dodge County Hospital to help continue their mission of community health.”
The Georgia HEART Hospital Program works in conjunction with the Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit Bill (Senate Bill 258), enabling businesses and taxpayers to redirect their Georgia income tax liability to help support qualifying hospitals. Participation in the Georgia HEART Program is limited to Georgia hospitals that meet qualifying criteria established by the law. To learn more about the program, visit https://www.georgiaheart.org/.
