Congressman Buddy Carter Recognizes Clinch Memorial Hospital
Congressman Earl “Buddy” Carter addressed the House of Representatives in Washington to recognize the outstanding work done by Clinch Memorial Hospital in winning the HomeTown Health 2019 Hospital of the Year award.
Congressman Carter’s proclamation is reproduced below.
“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Clinch Memorial Hospital for being named the Hometown Health Hospital of the Year for 2019.
I am proud of the work that Clinch Memorial Hospital is doing to provide high quality care to our rural communities in the First Congressional District of Georgia.
With unique challenges facing rural health care systems across the nation, Clinch Memorial Hospital has met these challenges head on and is using groundbreaking programs to better the care for individuals in the surrounding rural communities.
Over the last 2 years, the hospital’s CEO, Ms. Angela Ammons, has added new programs to help people with substance abuse issues, a swing bed system to more efficiently use their resources, and a new wound-care unit.
But most importantly, she has nearly miraculously turned around the hospital’s financials maintaining the community’s access to health care and keeping the local economy churning.
Clinch Memorial Hospital is more than deserving of the Hospital of the Year award.
Congratulations and keep up the good work!”
