Serving You

GHA has several initiatives as part of our objective to serve as the leading advocate for all Georgia hospitals and health care systems. Our government relations efforts give hospitals a legislative voice at the state and national level. Each of our initiatives, from the Center for Rural Health to the Emergency Preparedness program to the Partnership for Health and Accountability, ensures that our hospitals have all the resources they need to thrive in their communities.

Community Benefit Report Available


Communities trust hospitals to provide quality care and education and use them as a resource for health, wellness, prevention and care.

Hospitals are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Commitment to community service is a key component in Georgian hospitals' visions and mission statements. They incorporate community benefit principles as they provide programs and services that

  • emphasize disproportionate unmet health-related needs;
  • emphasize primary prevention;
  • build a seamless continuum of care;
  • build community capacity; and
  • emphasize collaborative governance.
