Valdosta - A South Georgia hospital has contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the Valdosta and Lowndes County Community.

Statistics just released by the Georgia Hospital Association show South Georgia Medical Center generated more than 418 million dollars in 2004.

And the hospital expects a significant increase 2005 and 2006.  "The hospital has had two fairly significant growth years in 2005 and 2006. And of course, the community continues to grow and I anticipate the hospital to grow along with the community. So the future looks good for us," say James McGahee, CEO of SGMC.

The Lowndes-Valdosta Chamber of Commerce says South Georgia Medical Center and Valdosta State University are the top economic engines in the area.
