Sen. Ossoff Strengthening Dialysis Health Care in South Georgia

Tifton, Ga. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is strengthening health care in South Georgia.

Today, Sen. Ossoff announced he is delivering Federal funding for Tift Regional Health System to help upgrade health care services with state-of-the-art equipment for traditional and peritoneal dialysis at Tift Regional Health System, which serves 12 counties in South Georgia.

Sen. Ossoff brought Republicans and Democrats together to deliver $600,000 for the project through this year’s bipartisan government funding package.

“I’ve appropriated funds to expand dialysis services for patients in South Georgia. I thank President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Dorman for bringing this proposal to my office and for his leadership in the community,” Sen. Ossoff said.

“We’re grateful for U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff for his support in securing this Federal funding that will allow us to expand and upgrade health care for families in South Central Georgia,” said Claire Byrnes, Senior Vice President for Ambulatory Services at Tift Regional Health System. “While Tift provides both Inpatient and Outpatient Dialysis, the Outpatient volume has risen 20% over prior year, stretching us beyond our current capacity. This equipment will allow us to more than double our capacity and is needed in order to continue to provide effective care with state-of-the-art clinical care machinery.”
