Excellence is not a skill, it's an attitude. Excellence is a continuous process, doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.


For decades, CGHN has championed physician interests with insurance companies in Central Georgia.


CGHN is a physician-led, professionally managed, clinically-integrated network comprised of independent physicians and hospital partner, Navicent Health.
