Rural Hospital Stabilization Program

In March 2014, Governor Nathan Deal created the Rural Hospital Stabilization Program to identify needs of the rural hospital community and provide potential solutions. The program works to increase the flow of communication between hospitals and the state, and improve Georgia’s citizens’ access to health care.

The Rural Hospital Stabilization Grant Program is currently in the sixth year of funding. Phase 6 participating hospitals are: Appling Healthcare System, Bacon County Hospital, Candler County Hospital, Clinch Memorial Hospital, Dodge County Hospital, Donalsonville Hospital, Elbert Memorial Hospital, Jasper Memorial Hospital, Jeff Davis Hospital, Jefferson Hospital, Jenkins County Hospital, Memorial Hospital & Manor, Miller County Hospital, Stephens County Hospital, Taylor Regional Hospital, and Wills Memorial Hospital. The awards distributed for Phase 6 total $15 million. The Rural Hospital Stabilization Grant Phase 6 funding period is May 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.
