NEWNAN, GA (March 3, 2021) — Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America in Newnan, GA and Yamaha Golf-Car Company together recently donated a new golf car to Piedmont Newnan Hospital for hospital volunteers and to provide a free shuttle to those coming into and leaving the hospital.
“Yamaha has been a great partner and supporter of our hospital over the years and we thank them for their continued generosity, not only to our hospital but also to the community as a whole,” said Mike Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan. “With our continued growth, having an additional car will allow us to serve more of our community who may have difficulty walking to and from our facilities.”
With Yamaha’s generous donation, the hospital now has three golf cars in operation. With the recent opening of the new Piedmont Medical Plaza II and the increase in patient volumes, the additional golf car allows the shuttle service to provide rides to more people on the hospital campus without long wait times. Whether a patient or visitor has impaired mobility, health risks that prevent them from walking long distances, are accompanied by small children, or are just along for the ride, Piedmont’s volunteer car drivers provide shuttle services rain or shine and the hospital has implemented COVID-19 safety measures to keep riders safe.
“We are very pleased and proud to facilitate this important donation of a new Yamaha golf car to our local Piedmont Newnan Hospital”, said Mike Chrzanowski, Chairman of YMMC. “The hospital clearly supports the health and wellbeing of our community and their level of care and support to the citizens of Coweta County and the surrounding area particularly during that past year of COVID challenges has been second to none!”
“Supporting the local community is something that Yamaha takes seriously and we couldn’t think of a better cause than helping the patients, visitors and staff of Piedmont Newnan Hospital navigate through their parking complex,” added Tom McDonald, President of Yamaha Golf Car Company.
This is the second golf car Yamaha has donated to Piedmont Newnan since the hospital opened its new campus on Poplar Road in 2012.
