Ground Broken for Miriam & Hugh Nunnally Maternity Care Center Expansion & Renovation

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: April 29, 2009 – Southeast Georgia Health System held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday, April 27, to mark the official beginning of the expansion and renovation of the Miriam & Hugh Nunnally Maternity Care Center on the Brunswick Campus. The new construction will add 6,550 feet of additional space to the existing center and will provide more upscale finishes to provide a more family-centric setting. When complete the Center will feature 24 redesigned labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum rooms (LDRPs) with the latest technologies that will allow mothers and their babies to remain in the same hospital room throughout their stay. Two enclosed courtyards will also be added, as well as new waiting areas and an enhanced security system.

The honorees at the event were Hugh Nunnally and his children, Lee, Mary Hopkins, and Tripp. Mr. Nunnally and his late wife Miriam made a one million dollar donation to the expansion and renovation of the Maternity Care Center and have been long-time supporters of the Health System.
