Veazey named to ‘Most Influential Georgians’ list

January 3, 2022

In its January edition, Georgia Trend has named Tifton’s Monty Veazey, President and CEO of the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, as one of the 100 Most Influential Georgians.


“Georgia Trend’s 24th annual list of Most Influential Georgians features a group of remarkable leaders who have had a tremendous positive impact on the strength and character of our state,” said Georgia Trend publisher Ben Young. “Our year-round process involves vetting and selecting 100 outstanding individuals out of thousands who work tirelessly to create a better Georgia.


“Monty Veazey is a prime example of the leaders we are fortunate to have who are passionate about improving the daily lives of our state’s citizens. His ongoing work helps ensure Georgians in rural areas continue to have access to quality healthcare.”


A leading voice on healthcare policy in Georgia for many years, Veazey’s work focuses on protecting access to comprehensive hospital care Georgians in every corner of the state.


“I appreciate Georgia Trend’s recognition because it shines a light on the crucial service that community hospitals provide,” Veazey said. “Over the past two years, hospitals have provided the frontline in the battle against COVID and undoubtedly saved thousands of lives at a time when many healthcare providers had closed their doors. I’m honored to have my name included on a list with so many distinguished Georgians I admire and in a publication that, like community hospitals, has statewide reach and understands the importance of each county and region.”
