Community hospitals are vital to the delivery of emergency health care services to millions of Georgians annually across the state – large and small, urban and rural – and supports thousands of jobs and the economic viability of communities where they operate.
Currently, 13.9 percent of the total state population is uninsured, ranking Georgia the 3rd highest percentage of uninsured population. That is why our community hospital system is so important – they treat all patients, regardless of their insurance or ability to pay. And as other Georgia families see mounting insurance and prescription drug costs, our community hospitals are needed now more than ever.
