Governor Brian Kemp announced earlier this week that the State contracted with Alpharetta-based Jackson Healthcare to undertake the critical mission of filling the staffing needs of healthcare providers that are battling the spread of COVID-19.
“Jackson Healthcare is working all across the country to place doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers on the front lines of battling COVID-19,” said Shane Jackson, president of Jackson Healthcare. “But Georgia is our home, and when the State asked us to help supply healthcare providers in Georgia with the personnel they would need to treat these patients, we immediately made it a top priority.”
“Our team has been working around the clock for the past several weeks doing everything we can to help our fellow Georgians,” Jackson added. “We are honored to work with the incredible professionals at the Georgia Department of Community Health, our many healthcare staffing partners who are a critical part of this effort, the tremendous team at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, and the healthcare community across Georgia, which is on the front lines of this crisis.”
