As part of the Georgia HEART Hospital Program, First Port City Bank is supplying $131, 207 dollars of financial support to Memorial Hospital and Manor.
First Port City Bank is a strong believer in its communities and in the power of giving back. “We have a great respect for Memorial Hospital and Manor and the changes that are occurring,” said Scott Ewing, President of FPCB. “They work tirelessly to provide quality healthcare to our community and we are pleased to know that our gift will help this organization to thrive. I am also appreciative to our FPCB directors who have participated in this program individually. “
Memorial Hospital and Manor is grateful for the continued support through the Georgia Heart Program, “First Port City Bank leads our contributions from “C” Corporations and we are thankful for their vote of confidence,” says Jim Lambert
The Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit enables Georgia businesses and taxpayers to redirect their Georgia income tax liability to help support these qualified hospitals. Through this rural hospital tax credit program, a “C” Corporation or trust shall be allowed a 100% Georgia income tax credit for contributions to rural hospitals equal to the amount of the contribution, or 75 percent of the corporation’s or trust’s income tax liability, whichever is less.
Additionally, the IRS recently issued guidance confirming that for federal income tax purposes, “C” corporations can deduct rural hospital tax credit contributions as ordinary and necessary business expenses.
If you would like more information as to how this program can be beneficial to your business, please contact Lauren Harrell at Memorial Hospital and Manor at 229.243.6115.

She recently reached out to assist one of our outpatients during their time of need. The patient needed assistance to get home near Augusta, over four hours away from our facility, and had no means of travel. Jan purchased a bus ticket for her and she was able to get back home safely.
Please congratulate Jan when you see her. Memorial Hospital and Manor is truly grateful to have her as a part of our team.

MHM congratulates our own, Senator Dean Burke, M.D., Chief Medical Officer!
GHA presented its prestigious Legislator of the Year Award to Georgia State Sen. Dean Burke (R-Bainbridge). The award recognizes an outstanding legislator who, through his or her efforts in the Georgia General Assembly, promotes legislation that helps ensure health care access for every Georgian and demonstrates support of GHA’s legislative goals.
As vice chairman of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee and chairman of the Senate Health Subcommittee of Appropriations, Sen. Burke supported state budget increases in emergency department reimbursement, including a 20 percent increase and 40 percent increase for urban and rural hospitals, respectively. He was also instrumental in raising the Rural Hospital Tax Credit to 90 percent from 70 percent during the 2017 Georgia General Assembly Session and then to 100 percent during the 2018 Session. The tax credit recently reached its full donation cap for the first time and will greatly help rural hospitals and the patients and communities they serve.
The MHM family extends a sincere “Thank You!” to First Port City Bank of Bainbridge. FPCB donated $52,000 to MHM through the Georgia Rural Hospital Tax Credit Program, Georgia HEART. The generously donated funds will be use to defray the expense of replacing the Infant Security System at MHM. Georgia HEART is helping rural hospitals implement the new rural hospital tax credit to increase their funding and their ability to provide for the health care of thousands of Georgians! For information about the rural hospital organization expense tax credit, and how you can donate please call (229) 243-6161 Ext. 115 or Heatherl@mh-m.org.
