Georgia Regents University and the Georgia Regents Health System is growing, according to president and CEO Dr. Ricardo Azziz.

Azziz spoke at the Rotary Club of Savannah Monday to provide an overview of the recently consolidated institution, current organizational opportunities and challenges, and the future vision for the university and health system.

"I think having good healthcare and good health professionals is not just about taking care of the population we have today, it is also a matter of attracting businesses into our community. It is about economic impact. Businesses will not come to Georgia if they feel there is not good care across the state," said Azziz.

Azziz says the university has a great partnership with Savannah, especially when it comes to training medical students.
