BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Dec. 1, 2008 – Southeast Georgia Health System
is pleased to welcome radiation oncologist Kenyon Meadows, MD. Meadows

Meadows, a native of Youngstown, Ohio, graduated magna cum laude with a
Bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Case Western Reserve University
in Cleveland, Ohio. While at Case Western, Meadows, a defensive end on
the football team, was named to the 1997 GTE Academic All American 1st
Football Team. After completing college, Meadows enrolled in Case Western’s
School of Medicine and received his medical degree in 2001. He then went
on to complete an internship in internal medicine at Metrohealth Medical
Center in Cleveland followed by his completion of a residency in radiation
oncology at Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Most recently,
he was on the medical staff at Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Alabama.
Radiation oncology is a medical specialty dealing with the use of various
forms of radiation in treating cancer. Meadows says he found his specialty
somewhat by accident near the end of his third year of medical school.
“I didn’t feel led to any particular specialty at that point,
so I went out exploring and happened to take an elective in radiation/oncology,”
says Meadows, who soon found helping cancer patients was his calling.
“I was very impressed with how appreciative the patients were for
the care you gave them.”
Dr. Meadows, who is board certified by the American Board of Radiology,
belongs to the American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology
and the Radiological Society of North America. He has made numerous professional
presentations and has had articles accepted for publication in the Journal
of Radiation Oncology Biology and Physics and the American Journal of
He says the move to the Golden Isles was an easy one to make. “My
wife’s family lives in Jacksonville and we love this area,”
says Meadows, who has two young daughters, Camille, 2, and Gabrielle,
2 months, with his wife Wilnita. “The hospital is beautiful and
houses the latest technology. And living close to the water is a plus.
I think we’ll be at home here.”
