Valdosta hospital begins $19M project

May 24, 2007

Valdosta - South Georgia Medical Center is beginning a $19 million project that will add two new buildings to growing hospital. Thursday, they broke ground for a new Ambulatory surgery center and medical office building.

The new buildings will come with the newest technology and ease congestion from the Emergency room.

They say these changes will help improve healthcare for the hospital's patients.  "It will allow us to do our outpatient surgery here and will be a lot more convenient for the patients rather than having them go to the main O.R. or the main hospital they'll be able to access this facility and go through the process a lot quicker," say SGMC CEO James McGahee.

They hope to hire around thirty new employees when the doors open in a year.
