As Gov. Nathan Deal criss-crosses the state signing bills passed in the 2017 legislature, he will be in Gainesville Tuesday afternoon to sign Senate Bill 102, known informally as the Cardiac Care Bill.
The legislation provides in part for designated cardiac care centers in Georgia and creates an Office of Cardiac Care in the State Department of Public Health. Because of SB 102, Georgia will become one of only a few states in the nation to have designated emergency cardiac care centers.
The governor will sign the bill at the main campus of Northeast Georgia Medical Center. The bill-signing ceremony is set for 4 p.m. at the Walters Auditorium at 743 Spring Street in Gainesville.
