TIFT CO., GA (WALB) -

Leaders for one hospital in Southwest Georgia spent their monthly meeting time working on service projects. 

Usually these leaders meet in a board room but this afternoon they got hands on around their community.

Tift Regional Health System leaders split up into 8 teams. 

They divided and conquered different service projects. 

This ranged from cleaning up a church daycare playground to giving Walmart shoppers a gift card and helping carry grocery bags. 

VP's, supervisors and board members all joined forces. 

"You move from front line to leadership roles within the organization and sometimes you lose that that hand's on touch with the patients in the community and you feel like you are less impactful from time to time. This reminds us that we can be impactful outside of our jobs and what we do," said Claire Byrnes of Tift Regional Medical Center. 

"We understand the value of supporting the community because the community supports us. Our leaders need to always understand that value," said Chris Dorman, C.O.O. 

All 8 projects were finished and took about 6 hours to complete.
