Valdosta - Sending get well wishes to your friends and family is now as easy as turning on your computer.

South Georgia Medical Center is offering a new email greeting system for patients. All you have to do is go the hospital's web site and click on the email a patient link, type in your greeting and stationary choice, and hospital workers will print out the letter and deliver it to the patient on the same day.

It's a quick and convenient alternative to conventional mail.  "With conventional mail, it doesn't give you a lot of opportunity to go out, buy a greeting card, address it and put a stamp on it, and it still get delivered by the time the patient is discharged, so this is much easier," said Laura Love. 

The hospital has received patient email greetings from all over the country, and one even came in from Hungary.
