Georgia not-for-profit and community hospitals are vital to the health and wellbeing of families and communities across the state. Why? Because we put patients first.

That’s why we formed the Georgia Alliance for Community Hospitals. We’re bringing a diverse group of voices together to stand up for our community hospitals to keep outside interests away from dismantling these important institutions. Our locally owned and operated hospitals are a part of every community we serve. Whether it’s urban, suburban or rural, we’re there for you when you need us most.

Our Alliance’s core focuses are:

Putting you and your care first.

  • If you walk through our doors, we’ll never turn you away, no matter who you are or what you can pay.
  • Community hospitals re-invest every dollar they make into its staff, facilities, research, training, and technology.

Keeping emergency care close.

  • Emergency care only works if you can reach it in an emergency. Minutes or hours can make all the difference.
  • Community health systems were built to make sure that wherever you are in Georgia, emergency care is nearby.

Caring for the community as a whole.

  • Community hospitals offer care that goes beyond the walls of our facilities. They provide millions of dollars in free education, treatments, and screenings for chronic diseases.
  • Each hospital builds local partnerships, like putting doctors on sidelines for high school football games
