Grady General Hospital continues to be the beneficiary of generous donations from local financial institutions through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program.
On Tuesday, representatives of First National Bank presented Grady General Hospital Administrator Crystal Wells with a check for $10,000.
“First National Bank is pleased to be able to reinvest our profits into the Grady County community. Grady General Hospital is consistently ranked as one of the top hospitals of its size in the state. We, at First National Bank, are proud to partner with the hospital and it is our desire that this contribution will in some small way make an impact on the quality of life of our customers and neighbors,” First National Bank CEO Brad Barber said.
Barry Pollock, the Grady County market president, echoed Barber’s sentiments. “Our local hospital is an invaluable community asset. First National Bank is a proud supporter of Grady General Hospital,” Pollock said.
The Georgia HEART Hospital Program, funded through the Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit, enables Georgia businesses and taxpayers to redirect their Georgia income tax liability to help support qualified rural Georgia hospitals.
“We thank First National Bank for their generous contribution. Our hospital is fortunate to have such strong support from our community. We will invest these funds wisely as we strive to improve our quality of care for each and every patient served and cared for by Grady General Hospital,” Administrator Wells said.
“As a community bank, we are focused on providing resources to fuel the local economy. It is through our success and the support of our many customers and friends we are able to make this contribution today,” Market President Pollock said Tuesday.
