EMH seeking more grants

After receiving $750,000 grant, hospital pursuing $1.1 million more

Only days after announcing Elbert Memorial Hospital had received a $750,000 grant from the Georgia Department of Community Health, Hospital Administrator Kerry Trapnell said last week the hospital is currently pursuing $1.1 million more in grants.

In last week’s EMH Authority meeting Trapnell said that the hospital has submitted a “pre-application” for a $600,000 Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Telemedicine Grant and has put in a request for a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Grant that totals $500,000.

According to Trapnell the hospital is “finalizing” projects and proposing a budget for the rural health grant, which will be used for emergency room renovations, medical office building renovations, new clinic spaces for telemedicine, new radiology equipment, an orthopedic surgery location and new website/marketing services.
