Wayne Memorial Hospital Named
2019 Small Hospital of the Year
Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals Honors Outstanding Community Contributions
Wayne Memorial Hospital was named 2019 Small Hospital of the Year by the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals (the Alliance) at its 36th Annual Conference, held on Oct. 16-18, 2019.
Through these awards, the Alliance highlights the impact of member hospitals on individual patients, the health and wellness of Georgians, and the quality of life of their communities.
While the healthcare industry, and particularly smaller hospitals, face a challenging financial and regulatory environment, Wayne Memorial Hospital has increased its services and commitment to its community. This year, Wayne Memorial opened the Nancy and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion, bringing chemotherapy services closer to home for patients in their community. They will also open two additional Operating Rooms.
Wayne Memorial has supported local efforts to fund better schools to create a stronger connection between local education and healthcare, as well as supporting local efforts to serve victims of food insecurity, domestic violence, and local children’s programs.
“We are proud to recognize Wayne Memorial Hospital as the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals’ 2019 Small Hospital of the Year for their commitment to preserving and expanding access to quality healthcare in their community,” said Alliance President, Monty Veazey.

I had cataract surgery in November and December and my husband and I were extremely impressed with the professionalism and courtesy demonstrated by every single staff member to both of us!!! Every person who attended me during the prep asked name, DOB, and which eye. And every person asked those questions with a smile on his/her face and looking me directly in the eye. I know they deal with tens of patients daily, but they made me feel as if I was their only patient that day and they were delighted to see me!
Thank you to your staff for their outstanding service. They certainly deserve the awards in 2010 and 2015 and every year in between!!!
