Georgia HEART Hospital Program

Help improve health care in our community through Georgia’s new tax credit opportunity!

Colquitt Regional Medical Center is excited to be partnering with the Georgia HEART Hospital Program to implement this exciting new rural hospital tax credit.

Through this program, Georgia taxpayers can receive a state income TAX CREDIT for 90% of the amount they contribute to qualified rural hospital organizations such as Colquitt Regional Medical Center (up to the limits set forth below).

In addition, taxpayers who itemize deductions on their federal income tax returns will be able to take a charitable income tax deduction for their contributions.

How much can I contribute for a tax credit?
