Georgia Trend honors Veazey as ‘Notable Georgian’

Georgia Trend magazine recognized Tifton’s Monty Veazey, the CEO of the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, as one of its 60 “Notable Georgians” for 2021 in its January issue.


“I’m honored to have my name mentioned alongside so many great Georgians who have accomplished so much for our state,” Veazey said. “I’m incredibly lucky to work every day with dedicated healthcare professional at community hospitals. They’ve always played a critical role in keeping Georgians – and our economy – healthy, but the stresses and demands of this pandemic have brought their sacrificial service into sharp focus.


“I appreciate Georgia Trend for bringing attention to the work that we are doing together because the hospitals that I represent are critical to their communities. We all have a role to play in protecting our community hospitals because they’re the only providers that are there for our families 24/7, whatever your healthcare needs are.”


Georgia Trend’s publisher said healthcare workers deserve special recognition for their front line roles in the fight against COVID.


“Narrowing down the list of 100 Most Influential Georgians and Notable Georgians is never easy thanks to the wealth of talent in the state,” said Ben Young, publisher and editor-in-chief of Georgia Trend. “With the ongoing pandemic, though, it just made sense this year honor our healthcare workers on Georgia Trend’s 100 Most Influential Georgians and Notable Georgians lists. We are so grateful for the outstanding commitment shown by the healthcare community and could think of no more deserving sector for recognition.”
