Community Benefit

Eighth Annual Statewide Community Benefit Report

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.
