Recovery, Wellness, and Independence

2018 is off and running.  Between budget and legislative activities, and our ongoing system-wide transformation, we continue to drive toward the end of the ADA Extension Agreement, scheduled for June 30, 2018.  As we focus on these significant strategic priorities, I wanted to take a pause and revisit our “WHY?”.  Why do we embrace our challenging mission to serve some of Georgia’s most vulnerable citizens?

2018 is Here!

Happy New Year!  I hope each of you was able to rest and spend quality time with loved ones as 2017 came to a close.  I want to offer my sincere thanks to our hospital and provider staff who worked through the holidays.  I am humbled by the dedication that you all demonstrate year round.

Season's Greetings

Season’s Greetings! I hope that each of you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving. Amidst the beautiful weather, bustle and delicious food, my most treasured time included hearty laughter with family and friends. I hope you savored the same.

Feeling Like Fall

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall, with cooler air, football, and pumpkin spice everything.  Fall is a season of change, and though the leaves on the trees stayed green a little longer this year, we know that change is always coming. 

Hurricane Ready

The close of Summer was bustling with activity at DBHDD, and as we start a new season, I want to stop and recognize the many heroes we have in our DBHDD family.  Last month, as Georgia prepared for the impact of Hurricane Irma, DBHDD staged two significant evacuations to protect the people we serve.   

Labor Day at DBHDD

Greetings, and welcome back to work after our three-day weekend.  As we celebrate Labor Day, it is a good time to reflect on the significance of this holiday.  The history of Labor Day dates to the late 1800s when the Labor movement was in full swing. 

Independence in its Deepest Meaning

Happy Summer to all! The transition to a new season on the calendar offers an opportunity to reflect upon the previous months and also peek forward into the weeks ahead.
