Atlanta Healthcare Entrepreneur Makes Specialized Healthcare His Mission

Jay Ramos and Precision Healthcare Solutions strive to offer compassionate, comprehensive healthcare services.

Atlanta, Georgia Nov 27, 2022 ( – Specialized healthcare is a vital part of life for those affected by conditions that limit their mobility and capacity to complete daily living tasks.

In many locations, those services are either lacking or nonexistent.

But in Atlanta, one up-and-coming healthcare entrepreneur has made it his mission to provide high-quality, personalized healthcare services available to the public.

Precision Healthcare’s managing director, Jay Ramos, believes the people of Atlanta deserve no less.

“Precision Healthcare strives to ensure that people across Georgia have access to a team that practices both compassion and professionalism when providing healthcare services,” says Ramos.

Precision Healthcare is a healthcare agency built to provide daily living assistance to individuals between the ages of 4 and 21 who are medically fragile and need personal care support and skilled nursing.

“Precision Healthcare was inspired by the needs of area residents affected by common diagnoses like cerebral palsy, Rett syndrome, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, and paralysis,” Ramos said.

Precision Healthcare assists clients with daily activities such as feeding, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication assistance, toileting, transferring, and companionship.

Opinion: The three phone calls Herschel Walker needs to make

Opinion: The three phone calls Herschel Walker needs to make

In the aftermath of the Republican Party’s disappointing midterm election results, many people have asked if I feel vindicated. After all, since the debacle of the 2020 election and the ensuing Senate runoffs in my home state of Georgia, I have been outspoken in my belief that the continued presence of former President Donald Trump is an inhibitor to our party’s success.

Opinion: The three phone calls Herschel Walker needs to make

Heck, I even wrote a book about it more than a year ago predicting this outcome. But I take no pleasure in being correct. I am a tried-and-true conservative. I believe that America is headed in the wrong direction, fueled by the hangover of the Trump years and the policies of President Joe Biden and his congressional enablers.

Site Selection Magazine: Virginia Top State for Business Climate



Site Selection Magazine says Virginia is the top state in its business climate ranking, beating out Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, and Arizona for the top spot. Although the commonwealth only ranked 11th in a survey of executives, one of the indicators in the index, it performed well in the other indicators, including data on corporate expansion and rankings in other lists like the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private corporations, CNBC’s Top States for Business, and the amount of bipartisan infrastructure bills and funding in each state.

“Governor Glenn Youngkin has only been in office since January, but he wasted no time getting to work on tasks that collectively contribute to Virginia’s desirability as a location for business and industry,” Site Selection said, featuring an interview with Governor Youngkin.

Youngkin said he’s focused on a business-friendly tax and regulatory environment, workforce development through education, safe communities, and efficient government. Additionally, he said Virginia needs to help companies make investment choices through elements including sites, utilities, and permitting confidence.

“Third is to bring people together and to sometimes be the lead project manager, which is a role I’m comfortable stepping into occasionally to make sure we are delivering on the second bucket,” Youngkin told Site Selection. “I dedicate a meaningful amount of my calendar time to economic development activities, making sure we’re thinking through the long-term needs of business. You might think of me as Virginia’s chief business development officer.”

Judge appoints lawyer to represent interests of Orioles owner Peter Angelos; Georgia, Louis Angelos appear at court


A judge appointed a lawyer on Thursday to represent the interests of Peter Angelos, who has been incapacitated by illness as his family fights over control of his assets, including his legendary law firm and the Baltimore Orioles.

Baltimore County Circuit Judge Keith R. Truffer also moved to avoid a threat by Wells Fargo to freeze the Angelos law firm’s accounts because of the family dispute over the ownership and management of the practice, known for winning billions of dollars on behalf of asbestos and tobacco victims.

But the judge saved for another day decisions on other requests from the feuding family’s lawyers, including whether the law firm should be placed under a temporary conservator.

Truffer appointed Benjamin Rosenberg, founder and chairman of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg in Baltimore, to represent Angelos in the legal proceedings that have his wife, Georgia, and elder son John, the Orioles chairman and CEO, facing off against younger son Louis.

Georgia Angelos, 80, waited in a courthouse hallway, expecting to be called to testify at the hearing, but Truffer determined that would be unnecessary. Louis Angelos, 53, who has been managing his father’s law firm, sat in the courtroom with his attorneys. John Angelos, 55, was not seen in the courtroom.

For all of Peter Angelos’ prominence in legal, political, philanthropic and sports circles, he and his family have largely shunned the spotlight that they now find themselves in.

“This family has always been a very private family,” noted Jeffrey E. Nusinov, who represents Louis Angelos, at one point during the hearing.

Trident Refit Facility Kings Bay Dry Dock Completes Recapitalization Project; Holds Re-Opening Ceremony


KINGS BAY, Ga. (Oct. 18, 2022) – Trident Refit Facility Kings Bay held a ceremony marking the re-opening of its dry dock at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia, Oct. 18.

The nearly $600 million Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southeast recapitalization project began in the summer of 2020.

More than 1,000 people worked on the project, spearheaded by Alberici-Mortenson, Joint Venture.

“I am super proud of what Resident Officer in Charge of Construction (ROICC) Trident and our contractor partners have been able to accomplish in 15 short months,” said Cmdr. Marcel Duplantier, ROICC Trident. “To be able to look out across the dry dock and see the massive transformation this project has provided to this critical infrastructure is truly remarkable.”

The 15-month project consisted of three phases which included construction of temporary work and storage spaces, procurement of long lead items, replacement of roof and wall panels, recoating of all structural steel, replacement of utility systems that support the docked submarine and replacement of all of the dry dock systems that move water in and out of the dock, as well as various upgrades.

Having a functional dry dock ensures the eight Ohio-class submarines homeported at the base can keep up with maintenance schedules, remain operational and continue the mission of strategic deterrence.

I’ve always been interested in business. I grew up working at a restaurant with my parents, which has always been a part of my life. When I went to college, I decided to pursue marketing because it is one of the most general business degrees you can earn. I realized that I liked it and was good at it, so I ended up staying with it in college. Later, I realized I wanted to pursue technology-intensive fields, so I pursued a master’s degree in Information Systems.
