Hospital Authority of Wayne County
We began working as bond counsel for the Wayne County Hospital Authority in 1971. In 2005 the Authority and the Wayne County Board of Commissioners decided that it was time to build a completely new hospital facility in Jesup. After voters approved a special local option sales tax election (SPLOST) in Wayne County, general obligation bonds were issued by the county to assist the Hospital Authority with the new construction. A combination of hospital authority certificates, general obligation sales tax bonds, and general obligation bonds totaling $51,570,000 were issued in 2006 and 2007 to complete the new hospital.
