Bank OZK  contributions to MHM since 2018 total $180,000.00. More than $1 million has been contributed through Georgia HEART, the statewide rural hospital organization expense tax credit program. Jim Lambert, Memorial Hospital and Manor’s CEO, stated, “The generous contribution of $75,000 form Bank OZK will go a long way in supporting our mission of providing high quality, cost effective healthcare, and promote wellness throughout our community. Bank OZK’s donations of $180,000.00 over the past three years has allowed us to make investments in people, technology, and programs for positive health outcomes in Bainbridge and our surrounding market.” Frank Posey, Bank OZK President – South Georgia/Alabama/South Carolina Division, said, “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 difference. That’s why we are so pleased to support Memorial Hospital with the contribution that will allow for additional investments in technology, equipment, and facility enhancements.” Thank you, Bank OZK.

#MaskUpGeorgia

In partnership with Georgia Hospital Association, Memorial Hospital and Manor is asking citizens to participate in the “#Mask Up Georgia” Campaign to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage organizations, businesses, and individuals to post on social media pictures or videos of themselves wearing masks and to accompany these posts with #MaskUpGA and a message about why they “mask up.”

“This campaign is about Georgians coming together for the greater good,” said GHA President and CEO Earl Rogers. “We, along with Gov. Brian Kemp, urge everyone to make the choice to wear a mask as part of collective efforts to stop the spread of this virus. Together, we can help keep our state healthy and well.”

MHM CEO, Jim Lambert, is asking everyone to wear their mask out in the community when they’re in stores or restaurants and can’t social distance. He encourages MHM employees and stated, “We as healthcare workers, can set an example for others in the community. The more people see others wearing a mask the more the more likely they are to wear one. None of us want to see a spike of Covid-19 cases in our community so it is incumbent on us to model behavior that can help get us all safely through this pandemic.”

Come on everyone! Let’s see those pics of you masking up. Post them and tell us why you “mask up.” Remember to include #MaskUpGA with your message and photo.

Message from the CEO

The past few months have been extremely challenging as we have all dealt with Covid-19 at home and at work.   Thank you all for your hard work and focus since the beginning of the outbreak. Your efforts have been key in helping contain the outbreak locally. Other parts of the state are seeing a growing number of cases and hospitalizations and our numbers are trending in that direction.

 

The best thing we can do to maintain our low rate of infection is to remain focused following our infection control policies regarding the appropriate wearing of PPE and masks at work.   I know you are tired of wearing masks but this the best way to protect each other from this disease. I recently heard someone say “You wear a mask to protect your fellow co-workers and they wear theirs to protect you”.   Let’s take care of each other and our patients by wearing masks as appropriate.

 

I want to encourage you to wear your mask out in the community when you’re in stores or restaurants and can’t social distance. We, as healthcare workers, can set an example for others in the community. The more people see others wearing a mask the more the more likely they are to wear one. None of us want to see a spike of Covid-19 cases in our community so it is incumbent on us to model behavior that can help get us all safely through this pandemic.

 

Please join me in wearing a mask and encouraging others to wear theirs so we can keep the community, ourselves and our families safe.

 

Thank you and stay safe!!!

National Guard Helping Battle Coronavirus

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.
