Erika Bennett, SGMC director of marketing, says the emergency department will allow a quicker and better throughput for patient confidentiality and will provide a better experience for them.

They are making sure the experience of patient care is a priority. They believe new moms in the areas shouldn’t have to drive far to receive high-quality services. They are bringing it to SGMC.

Lindsey Purvis, Women’s Services Program Director is looking forward to providing care to all SGMC patients.

“Women tend to have higher levels of anxiety. We want to just eliminate that in general to give them an experience and to give them the comfort that we’re here in every aspect of female services that we can,” she says.

This multi-phase project is estimated to take several years to complete, however, all hospital services will remain open and fully operational during the construction.
