Options Being Explored for Habersham Medical Center

Habersham County officials are exploring their options when it comes to the future of the Habersham Medical Center.

The Habersham County Commission held a closed session yesterday to discuss matters related to Habersham Medical Center. According to a report by AccessWDUN.com, the hospital authority and commission met to ensure that they were on the same exploration page when it comes to potential partners, purchasers, and/or agreements.

Three years ago, hospital authorities discussed with commissioners that the financial situation was “untenable” and that issues would rise if operations continued at pace.

Habersham Medical Center is a staple in the area, providing more than 600 jobs and nearly $1 billion of economic impact, according to the report from WDUN.
