DCH Georgia's picture

Pursuant to the provisions of Senate Bill 258 adopted during the 2016 General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Deal, the Department of Community Health hereby officially posts the following:

1. A list of 47 hospital organizations determined eligible to receive donations;

2. A financial proxy form required to be submitted to the Department by each eligible organization; and

3. A form detailing the content of a five year viability and stability plan required to be submitted to the Department by each eligible organization.

The financial proxy form and the five year plan must be received by the Department on or before 5 pm on Monday, October 17, 2016.  These items are to be submitted to my Executive Assistant, Danisha Williams, at danwilliams@dch.ga.gov

If any clarifying or additional information is needed, the hospital organization will be notified.  The Department will review all submissions for sufficiency by November 17, 2016. 

The information submitted on the financial proxy form and in the five year plan will be used to determine a ranking of eligible hospital organizations in order of financial need as required by the legislation.  A list evidencing the order will be posted by the Department on December 1, 2016. 

I would like to thank the Georgia Department of Revenue and Commissioner Lynne Riley for their cooperation and partnership in working to implement this important piece of legislation.
