Valdosta - A South Georgia hospital could be making some major technological improvements.

South Georgia Medical Center is one of five hospitals in the country General Electrics is considering for an electronic medical records system. The new system would eliminate excess paperwork and allow immediate access to SGMC records from anywhere in the country.

Wednesday, GE officials met with hospital administrators about the possible partnership, and say they're very impressed with South Georgia's healthcare.

"South Georgia medical center is in a great area that's going to see natural expansion no matter what, and that's why we've had such a positive relationship in the past and are hopeful about the future," said Greg Lucier, GE CEO.

SGMC has already implemented three GE information technology components - one in Obstetrics, one in Surgical Services, and another in Cardiology.
