Health Care

Living well has yet another vital meaning here in the region’s medical hub where the 285-bed acute-care South Georgia Medical Center (SGMC) serves more than a dozen South Georgia and North Florida counties with leading expertise and a medical staff currently comprised of more than 200 primary physicians and specialists and 2300 healthcare and support personnel.

The flagship of the non-profit South Georgia Health System, SGMC leads the region across the board, moving swiftly and expeditiously to incorporate the latest knowledge and technology and to adopt the most recent and best-practices standards of care. We invest significantly in human resources, as well as advanced technology to provide a broad spectrum of care in four convenient locations:  The SGMC Main Campus, the SGMC Berrien Campus, the SGMC Lanier Campus and the SGMC Outpatient Plaza. 


Today, SGMC Centers of Excellence include:

  • Spine Care Center: A multi-disciplinary approach to assessment and treatment at this top-ranked Center insures care uniquely tailored to patient needs; options range from physical therapy to aggressive non-surgical management to state-of-the-art spine surgery.

  • Pearlman Cancer Center: Patients enjoy top-flight care along with the confidence of knowing the Center exceeds state and national averages for all core measures for breast, colon and rectal cancers established by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons.

  • Dasher Heart Center: One of Georgia’s top-ranked heart care hospitals, the Center is now celebrating its 10th anniversary as it undertakes the addition of a new five-story patient tower.

  • Birthplace Obstetrical Center: Delivering high stats with high standards, SGMC’s Birthplace delivers 2,000 babies annually, with patient satisfaction scores that consistently rank in the 99th percentile.

  • Orthopedics Center: This trailblazing Center (the first in the region to offer computerized knee replacements, endoscopic carpel tunnel repair and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair) offers specialization in a range of needs, from joint replacement to trauma care to sports medicine.
