On Monday, Jan. 29 our organization filed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Georgia Department of Community Health to submit an application for a Certificate of Need (CON) to establish an open heart surgery program at Floyd Medical Center.
CON rules require any person or organization proposing to develop or offer a new institutional health service or health care facility to file an LOI 30 days before submitting a CON application. Floyd’s open heart surgery CON will be filed at the end of February.
$74.97 Million Provided in Community Benefits
The 2017 Community Benefit Report highlights the services provided by Floyd that flow back to the communities we serve and includes a summary of indigent and charity care, medical education and medical support at community events. For instance, did you know that in 2017, Floyd and Polk together provided over $32.9 million in indigent and charity care?
