Bank OZK (Nasdaq: OZK) is pleased to announce a $100,000 contribution to Memorial Hospital and Manor in Bainbridge, Georgia through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program. This brings the total donated since 2018 by Bank OZK for this community hospital to $530,000.
“Bank OZK is proud to once again participate in the Georgia HEART Hospital Program and do our part to help rural hospitals provide access to quality healthcare so the communities we serve including Bainbridge grow and thrive,” stated Tori Haack, Bank OZK Commercial Banking President.
Since 2018, Bank OZK has contributed over two million dollars through Georgia HEART, the statewide rural hospital organization expense tax credit program. Lawmakers enacted Georgia HEART to encourage taxpayers in Georgia to learn more about the financial and other challenges rural hospitals face and to contribute to improve their financial condition and patient offerings.
“Bank OZK continues to be an outstanding supporter of Memorial Hospital and Manor through their ongoing commitment to the Georgia Heart Tax Credit Program. They have been long time partners with our hospital and their continued support shows how important they believe having access to a full‐service hospital is to our rural community. Because of the generous donations through this program, we will be able to make needed equipment purchases and building upgrades,” said Jamie Sinko, Director of Development at Memorial Hospital and Manor.
Bank OZK contributed a total of $450,000 in 2024 to three rural Georgia hospitals, including Higgins General Hospital in Bremen and Union General Hospital in Blairsville. Bank OZK has 67 banking centers in Georgia, including a full‐service branch located at 226 S. Broad Street in Bainbridge.
