BERRIEN CO., GA (WALB) -

South Georgia Medical Center cut the ribbon to its newest hospital today.

SGMC purchased Berrien County Hospital in October for $3.9 million.

It's now called South Georgia Medical Center Berrien Campus.

The 63-bed hospital employs more than 120 healthcare specialists and treats 6,000 patients a year.

SGMC officials say the purchase will allow the hospital to provide more services and programs to the Nashville area.

"It's 25 miles to Valdosta from Berrien County, so access to services is a big part of providing a safety net to any community to thrive and grow," said SGMC CEO, Randy Sauls.

The previous owners still maintain full ownership of the Berrien Nursing home and Rehabilitation Center.
