Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

A partnership of over 80 local primary care and specialty physicians helped consolidate two rural hospitals into the Ty Cobb Regional Medical Center. The 144,000-square-foot center offers patients and physicians a modern healthcare facility that enhances the quality of care and strengthens the delivery of services. The new hospital also provides specialty health services not previously offered in the region. The Georgia Mountains Regional Commission prepared grant applications and secured funding from a variety of sources to support the project. In addition to increasing access to quality healthcare, the project is an economic driver for northeast Georgia and makes the region more competitive in attracting businesses.
