Sign up for the Georgia HEART Tax Credit Program Today!
Transfer the State Taxes You Already Pay Each Year to Liberty Regional Instead. There’s no out-of-pocket cost to you!
Pass-through entities such as Sole Proprietorships, etc. may even be able to use this contribution as a credit on your federal taxes as well!
In 2016 the Georgia General Assembly created a tremendous opportunity to help alleviate the financial pressures that rural hospitals face each day. Senate Bill 258 awards Georgia income tax credits to individual and corporate taxpayers who contribute to qualified rural hospital organizations (RHO). Georgia has allocated $60 million of RHO tax credits each year through 2024, with each qualified RHO having access to $4 million of tax credits.
Thanks to the generous donations to RHOs from so many businesses and individuals through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program, eligible hospitals, including Liberty Regional, have been able to continue providing quality health care as well as enhance services through upgraded equipment and capital improvements. By signing up, you can direct the taxes you already pay to the state to Liberty Regional instead! It’s win-win for everyone!
Simply visit www.georgiaheart.org to sign up today! It’s so simple!
Free-Standing ERs in Georgia Could Cause Major Issues
Free-standing Emergency Rooms are being proposed in Georgia. This may sound like a good idea but nothing could be further from the truth! Liberty Regional is joining FairER Healthcare GA, a coalition of organizations and concerned citizens, as well as many other hospitals in Georgia, in opposition of Free-Standing Emergency Rooms/Departments. Please take a few moments to educate yourself on why these free-standing facilities may have devastating effects on your health and your finances. Visit https://www.fairerhealthcarega.org/

Sharing in a Homegrown Success Story!
Meet Brandon Standard, Pharm.D.
Liberty Regional is proud to share in a homegrown success story! Brandon Standard, Pharm.D., currently serves as our Director of Pharmacy. However, his story doesn't begin here. Brandon's first experience in healthcare began while he was in high school serving in a summer job as a recreational aide at our Coastal Manor Long Term Care facility in Ludowici. The following summer he was given an opportunity to gain experience in our Pharmacy where, according to Brandon, it helped solidify his initial thoughts of becoming a pharmacist.
In 2013, Brandon became a Certified Pharmacy Technician and continued to work with Liberty Regional. In 2015, he was accepted into the School of Pharmacy at Mercer University and expanded his role in the Pharmacy as a Student Pharmacist. After graduation from Mercer, Brandon became a Staff Pharmacist through PharmD On Demand, who provides contractual services for Liberty Regional. When the position of Director became available, he was promoted and continues to serve in our Pharmacy in this new leadership role with a staunch work ethic, a passion for patient care and a sense of community.
Thank you Brandon for your service to our organization and to our patients!
