VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A new $64-million facility at Valdosta's South Georgia Medical Center is ready to start serving patients.

The Dasher Memorial Heart Center and Patient Tower will start admitting patients after Labor Day.

It houses state-of-the-art technology, including 3 cath labs and 96 private rooms. The last time the hospital added any new patient rooms was 25-years ago.

"We have a lot of semi private rooms in our current facility and the fact that we can go to all private rooms is going to be a big satisfier to the patients who come here," said Randy Sauls, SGMC CEO.

The 5-story patient tower is located on the south side of the main campus. It's accessible from Slater and Cowart Streets.
