With a reputation as an innovative provider of quality care, Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) is a not-for-profit, 191-bed regional hospital serving 12 counties in South Central Georgia.  Located in Tifton, the hospital’s medical staff includes more than 125 physicians representing over 30 specialties.

TRMC offers signature services in surgery, oncology, cardiovascular care, neurology, women's health, radiology and much more.

TRMC is under the direction of the Tift County Hospital Authority, a board of volunteer trustees appointed by the Tift County Board of Commissioners.  Though guided by a government-appointed entity, TRMC provides charitable care for the community without financial support from county government.


The philosophy of Tift Regional Medical Center is based on the belief that the primary and fundamental purpose of the hospital’s existence is to serve the health needs of the patient as well as those of the community.

The Hospital Authority of Tift County has the complete legal and moral duty and responsibility to see that Tift Regional Medical Center renders an adequate range of services that includes preventive, inpatient and outpatient services; to see that these services are delivered with a consistent, high level of quality; and, to ensure the hospital’s financial viability and cost effectiveness.

The hospital also strives to assist in the provision of an adequate number of primary care and specialty physicians in the region in order to facilitate access to healthcare services.  Insofar as Tift Regional Medical Center is a regional referral facility serving the healthcare needs of many citizens in South Central Georgia, the Hospital Authority recognizes its responsibility in a multi-county region.  The hospital is expected to adopt new and innovative methods of healthcare delivery consistent with the identified needs of the region.
