Rotarian Dr. Bonnie Boles from Higgins General Hospital, joined him and spoke about how the money will be used at Higgins. Equipment in different departments will be updated.  Higgins General is also pushing forward with the construction of a new state of the art surgical center that has a sound financial plan to make necessary improvements while keeping the hospital in operation.  Support from Georgia HEART helps defray the growing amount of charity care the hospital must cover, enabling it to invest in the new services and equipment upgrades that will allow it to provide a higher standard of care in Haralson County and West Georgia.
