“This contribution through the Georgia HEART Rural Tax Credit Program will help Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin continue to provide high-quality care to patients in Milledgeville, and elevate the services we offer as we meet the needs of patients in the Baldwin County and Lake Oconee region,” said Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin CEO Todd Dixon. Thank you Morris Bank for your generosity and support.”

Morris Bank is a community bank rooted in middle and south Georgia with nine branches in Dublin, Gray, Houston County and Bulloch County, and a mortgage services center in Milledgeville. In an effort to give back and support the communities it serves, Morris Bank partnered with the Georgia HEART Rural Tax Credit Program to assist Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin in serving area families.

“We are fortunate to have quality health care here in Milledgeville-Baldwin County, and we believe this is an essential driver to developing and growing this community,” said Chairman and CEO of Morris Bank, Spence Mullis. “We appreciate all that Atrium Health Navicent provides to this area and are proud to partner with them through the Georgia HEART Hospital Program to continue serving the health care needs of this community.”

Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin is a 140-bed, acute care facility located in Milledgeville that provides 24/7 emergency services, radiology services, women's services and general medical and surgical services to the 150,000 residents living in Baldwin and surrounding counties, and the Lake Oconee region.

Georgia businesses and individuals can contribute to the Georgia HEART Rural Tax Credit Program through June 30, 2022, or until a $60 million cap on contributions is met. By directing state taxes to qualified rural hospitals, taxpayers receive a 100 percent state income tax credit.
