Putnam General Hospital was proud to be one of 11 rural hospitals to receive an award from GA CAH Community at Georgia Southern. PGH received the 2020 Performance Patient Perspective Leadership Award.
The CPHPR at Georgia Southern University is committed to engaging in efforts to improve the health status of rural and underserved communities primarily through the effective application of health promotion and primary prevention. Consistent with the College’s mission, the Center seeks to be recognized as a leader in the area of public health practice by serving as a valuable resource to rural and underserved populations in the Southeastern US. The philosophy of the Center is active community engagement. In retrospect, we are pleased to have been able to provide our clients with technical assistance, education, public health research, program evaluation and other consulting health consulting services. That having been said, we invite you to join us in our journey to promote health and improve the quality of life of those who live in rural and underserved communities in both the state of Georgia, the surrounding region and globally.
Initially established as the Office of Rural Health, the CPHPR has experienced considerable transition in more than a quarter-century of service to the state of Georgia and the southeast United States. To more effectively reach rural and underserved communities, the Center resides in the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health.
