Governor Brian Kemp has deployed National Guard troops to help battle the Coronavirus Pandemic. Troops are being deployed to assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the state to thoroughly clean them and train staff on employing more aggressive infectious disease control measures. They arrived at our facility Thursday, April 23rd and completed a thorough disinfecting of our nursing home, Memorial Manor. This helped the Manor maintain it’s zero positive record and provided additional consolation to family members and loved ones of residents that our facility is sanitized. We are proud of our troops and thank them for their service.
Memorial Hospital and Manor is commited to adapting in the best possible way to continue quality care for our patients.
Amelia Medical Plaza and Memorial Pediatrics are offering home based telehealth visits as of today.
1. Patients can call office to set an appointment just like a regular appointment. Depending on the reason for your visit, we will determine whether a telehealth (virtual), phone call, or in-person visit is appropriate.
2. We remain open for in-person office visits.
3. If using telehealth, all you will need is a smart phone. The visit is similar to a “FaceTime” call.

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.
