MHM Congratulates our September 2018 Shining Star Award Winner Haily Brashers, Case Manager from the Quality Department.
Hailey is recognized and described for “Her diligent care and being willing to go the extra mile with compassion to help with the needs of her patients”; “She truly loves her job and her patients”; “She takes extraordinary measures to deal with abuse situations and advocating for her patients and she works so hard to find placement”; “She is an inspiration to work with and is so wise beyond her years,”.
These were just a few of the comments for Haily. Please congratulate Haily when you see her. Memorial Hospital and Manor is truly grateful to have her as a part of our team.
Great Job Haily!
Family Practice Provider, Kyle Kelley, FNP-C, and Nurse, Jasmine Daniels, LPN, captured the minds and hearts of West Bainbridge Elementary School Kindergarteners at Career Day. Both shared with students their reason for choosing a health care career, demonstrated the instruments they use daily to provide care, and left each student with valuable knowledge and a treat bag!
Memorial Hospital and Manor thanks Bank OZK for their generous $50,000 contribution to MHM through participation in the Georgia HEART Program! This is the single largest gift under Georgia HEART to Memorial Hospital and Manor. Frank Posey, Bank OZK South Georgia/East Alabama Division President, was present for the presentation and stated, “As a bank with strong roots to the community, we understand the importance of neighbors serving neighbors. Much like banking, personal connections and compassion in local healthcare makes all the differences. That’s why we are so pleased to support Memorial Hospital.” Staff from various departments showed to extend their gratitude and participate in the celebration. CEO, Jim Lambert, thanked Bank OZK for their dedication to rural healthcare in our community and said this gift will allow MHM to better serve the need of our patients. Mr. Lambert added “We are thankful for the many individuals and corporations who are taking part in this program.”
Congratulations Jenny Ratts-Harrison, Daisy Award winner! Jenny was nominated by Donna Viscardi, MHM Consultant. Donna was most appreciative of the time and effort Jenny contributed to the OB/GYN Documentation Project. Jenny spent countless hours (many on her own time) making the documentation process more efficient, allowing nurses more time to spend with patients. Donna expressed that throughout the project, Jenny has gone above and beyond with developing new assessments and training nurses in the department. We’re in agreement with Donna. Jenny is an amazing and caring employee and patients and MHM are lucky to have her.

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.
