VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Information from South Georgia Medical Center-

Healthcare in Lowndes County will improve with two promotions within the network of  South Georgia Medical Center.

Dr. Jason R. Mallin, MD comes to Valdosta from New York where he worked as a neurologist at New York Neurological Associates. In Valdosta, Dr. Mallin joins SGMC's thriving Stroke Program that functions under the leadership of Neurohospitalist Brian Dawson, MD.

"I am very impressed by the successes here," he said. "Dr. Dawson and his team introduced standardization of stroke care and many people are benefiting from their work. I am proud to come into an established program where people care so much."

Dr. Mallin spent several years as an Internal Medicine Hospitalist working in South Carolina and Maine before he went into neurology. He says internal medicine gave him a different perspective on stroke care because great differences have taken place between then and now. 

Dr. Mallin's preference for the warm Southern climate and the chance to work with an outstanding Stroke Program are two reasons why he moved to Valdosta.  Dr. Dawson and Dr. Mallin will work alternating weeks to provide in-hospital neurology services.

Meanwhile, David Bauch, MPA, RN, BSN, EMT-P has been named Administrative Chief of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for South Georgia Medical Center and its affiliated campuses. 

Bauch will fill the role formerly held by longtime EMS Chief Tim Brogdon, who recently retired.

His job responsibilities include 24/7 oversight for the Mobile Health Care Service Department (EMS), which includes approximately 75 employees and five EMS stations located throughout Lowndes County.

Bauch most recently served as Deputy Chief for EMS General Operations since December 1998.  He has 18 years of EMS leadership experience and has been employed with South Georgia Medical Center since 1986.
