Rural Hospital Tax Credits
Individual and corporate taxpayers who contribute to qualified rural hospital organizations (RHOs) in Georgia may receive income tax credits. South Georgia’s 14 medical centers are qualified to participate in the Georgia HEART Hospital Program to assist them with the marketing and administration of the RHO expense tax credit program. Together, these facilities and Georgia HEART are “Helping to Enhance Access to Rural Treatment.”
After four years in effect, our medical centers have received more than $30 million in contributions. These funds have been used to provide needed equipment and facility updates and to attract quality doctors and nurses to South Georgia.
