#HospitalHightlight Friday! Parents of kids who are in the #hospital for an extended time don't always have the opportunity to go shopping for gifts. That's why the One Hundred Club of Savannah provided early #Christmas gifts to the young patients at the Children's Hospital of Savannah at +Memorial Health.

The One Hundred is an organization dedicated to the advancement of children's health care through support of the Children's Hospital of Savannah.

Nearly 20 years ago, a car accident left 2017 #HospitalHero Ann Boriskie with a serious #braininjury. With limited resources and no one to guide her through the traumatic experience, the recovery was long and painful. Not wanting others to be without support, she vowed that when she got better she would help others going through the same ordeal. That is how she came up with the idea for the
Shepherd Center Brain Injury Peer Visitor Association.

Our rural #hospitals are fortunate to have the support of GHA Platinum Sponsor
Draffin & Tucker, LLP! Their donation of $124,000 to all eligible rural hospitals through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program will ensure important access to care in rural communities all around the state. We also thank Sen. Dean Burke (R-Bainbridge) for his work in the last legislative session on SB 180, which increases the tax credit to 90 percent for donations to eligible rural hospitals.
