BankSouth steps up to support St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation’s capital campaign

BankSouth has pledged their support to St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation’s $3 million capital campaign to purchase a 640-slice CT scanner, permanent MRI system, and to build space for a Cardiac Stress Lab and the new MRI system. 

BankSouth is a Platinum Gift Level ($50,000 and up) member of Good Samaritan Foundation’s Business Partners Society. 

“We are proud to support yet another initiative by St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital,” said Harold Reynolds, BankSouth Chairman and CEO. “With specialized services and innovative technology, St. Mary’s provides access to quality healthcare to the communities and citizens we serve in the lake area.”

Offering a full suite of consumer, commercial, digital banking and lending solutions, BankSouth has operated firmly on its values of Be Ready, Be Responsive and Be Respectful for 75 years.  In fact, BankSouth is celebrating its “75 YEARS YOUNG” campaign in 2021. BankSouth’s deep roots in the area and proximity to the people who live here has resulted in invaluable relationships with organizations like St. Mary’s to propel the community forward. 

Today, BankSouth is a leading community bank headquartered at Lake Oconee in Greensboro, Georgia, and is recognized as a top-performing bank nationwide. With over $1 billion in assets, BankSouth serves customers with branches in Atlanta, Greensboro, Savannah, Watkinsville, and beyond with a full suite of consumer, commercial and digital banking and lending products.

About St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation’s Capital Campaign:

According to St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital’s 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment, cardiovascular health ranked as the number one health need in our community.  In response to the growing need, Good Samaritan Hospital made plans to offer enhanced cardiac diagnostic services that were previously not available in our community and in September 2019, St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation launched the “Expanding Technology, Elevating Care” Capital Campaign to raise $3 million to purchase a 640-slice CT scanner, permanent MRI system, and to build space for a Cardiac Stress Lab and the new MRI system.  After the first $1 million was raised in late 2020, the CT scanner was installed and has been operational since January 2021.  Once the remainder of the $3 million is raised, St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital will begin planning for the building expansion that will house a new MRI system and Cardiac Stress Lab.
