Memorial Satilla Health presented a check for $40,000 to the Brantley County School District at Brantley County High School's football game on Friday, Nov. 2. The contribution was made through the hospital's Community Benefit Fund and will be used for athletic training/physical therapy supplies for students, sports safety and heat injury prevention equipment, and support for Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) student organizations.
"At Memorial Satilla Health, our culture is based on high quality and compassionate care focused on serving patients in our community," said Bobby McCullough, CEO of Memorial Satilla Health. "Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. That is the mission statement that guides us and we believe it is our responsibility to give back to our local communities."
Memorial Satilla Health, through its Community Benefit Fund, has committed to contribute $1.95 million to the area community over the next 10 years to meet community needs, including education, improvement of community health, business and economic development, and community enrichment. Community representatives on the hospital's board of trustees oversee the expenditure of these funds.
