Lee County is committed to being one of the best places possible in Georgia to live, work and raise a family. To fulfill this commitment, we know that we must always look for ways to continue building a better Lee County.

A Certificate of Need (CON) application related to a proposed new hospital in Lee County was filed on May 18, 2017 with the Georgia Department of Community Health. The filing is the next step toward seeking approval to build a new 60-bed general hospital in Lee County. The County Commission has been working for months with a dedicated team of experts, including local physicians, architects, developers and an experienced hospital operator to achieve its vision for the new hospital. Similar to many other states, Georgia requires approval of a CON application to build a new healthcare facility.

The proposed hospital will be a full-service healthcare provider, offering both acute and emergency care services such as an ICU, medical/surgical unit, inpatient and outpatient services, MRI and CT scan capabilities, and more. The County will provide the land for the hospital, along with the necessary infrastructure. The County will work with an experienced developer to construct the hospital and an experienced for-profit hospital operator, which will operate and manage the hospital. The Development Authority will own the hospital and the operator will operate and manage the hospital pursuant to a lease agreement. Expert architects will finalize the design of a state-of-the-art, 60-bed general hospital on Grand Island Road. The hospital will collaborate with a variety of community partners, such as Lee County Optical, Lee County Medical Arts Center, Hughston Clinic, Lee County Health & Rehabilitation, and more.
