Rural Hospital Stabilization Committee

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

The Rural Hospital Stabilization Committee has named the FY 2019 hospitals who will participate in the program; Burke Medical Center, Clinch Memorial Hospital, Evans Memorial Hospital, and Elbert Memorial Hospital. Since 2015, twenty-two hospitals have participated in the program.
