TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Georgia's Lieutenant Governor, Casey Cagle, was in Tifton to head a task force trying to improve rural health care.
The Lt. Governor says innovation is coming from Tift Regional Health System.
By looking into the ways health care providers and state government partner together, Cagle said they are investing in a better healthcare system for all of Georgia at a more affordable cost.
"It's not a one size fits all and there's not a silver bullet. We have to be committed to really helping rural Georgia meet the needs they have to give patients a quality-based health care system, obviously at a price they can afford as well," Cagle said.
