At last week’s Rotary meeting Rotarian Thomas Kidd gave an overview of the effects Obamacare has had on not-for-profit hospitals, such as Macon County General Hospital, and for-profit hospitals. Kidd, the CFO of Macon County General, also showed how MCGH rates above other area hospitals in patient services and below them in terms of cost of services. For more information on hospital comparisons, go to medicare.gov. The club also welcomed new member Glen Hale, Director of Finance for Tri-County Electric, into the club.

The Rotary club is a service organization devoted to projects supporting the community-at-large, including Makin’ Macon Fit, the Macon County 3rd Graders Dictionary Initiative, Boy Scouts, the Macon County High School Interact Club and the Junior High Interact Club, as well as scholarships. For more information on your local club you can call president Stacey Brawner at 615-666-2147. Like ‘Rotary Club of Lafayette, TN’ on Facebook.
