On behalf of the more than 40 employees serving the Georgia Hospital Association, I welcome you to GHA.org, the association’s resource for helping members. At GHA, we have spent hours looking at data, talking to members and researching best practices to put together a website that can serve as a valuable resource to Georgia’s hospitals. While doing this extensive work, we focused on you, the member, and thought about how you would benefit most when visiting our site. You are why we are here. If not for our hospitals treating patients and serving our communities, GHA would not exist. Hence, we are constantly working diligently to update and promote services that can help you fulfill your mission. As you peruse our site, please do not hesitate to contact me or a GHA staff member with comments and suggestions. We truly value your opinion and are at the ready to make improvements when needed. Always remember, GHA is about the people who are working at our hospitals, treating and saving lives. We're here to support you in any way we can.
- Earl V. Rogers, President and CEO
