This day is of great value not only to our hospital attendees - who get to be in the room with some of the most influential state leaders in healthcare legislation - but also for our legislators.

HomeTown Health, LLC rallied more than 40 hospital executives and best practice healthcare business partners at the Capitol Building in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, February 11, 2016 for the 10th annual Rural Hospital CEO Day at the Capitol.
The attending executives represented various rural and community hospitals spread throughout Georgia and came together with the purpose of meeting with their legislators and important committee members to share the plight of rural hospitals in Georgia, to thank the legislature for the positive steps it has made in supporting local hospitals, and to ask for their continued consideration in upcoming bills and legislation that affects healthcare funding in the state. Among those in attendance were three members of the Rural Hospital Stabilization Committee, Mel Pyne of Emanuel Medical Center, Robin Crosby of Appling Health Care System, and Jon Green of Crisp Regional Hospital.
Throughout the day, attendees were able to hear directly from Representative and House Majority Leader Jon Burns, Representative and House Health Appropriations subcommittee member Butch Parrish, House Speaker David Ralston and House Appropriations Chairman Terry England, Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, Gov. Nathan Deal, and Representative Geoff Duncan.
“This day is of great value not only to our hospital attendees - who get to be in the room with some of the most influential state leaders in healthcare legislation - but also for our legislators who get to meet the people and hear the stories of what is happening in hospitals around the state.” says HomeTown Health CEO Jimmy Lewis. “It is one thing to look just at the numbers and make decisions, but it is another thing to meet the hands and feet of these hospitals and realize that there is always more to the story than numbers alone.”
