Health System Marks Official Unveiling of Medical Plaza

Nov. 1, 2013--Southeast Georgia Health System celebrated the official unveiling of its new Medical Plaza on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013,  with a dedication, ribbon cutting and open house. The three-story, 60,000-square-foot Medical Plaza is located at 2060 Dan Proctor Drive in St. Marys.
“We are excited to see the Medical Plaza-Camden open its doors to provide a convenient location for physician offices and outpatient services for our community,” says Rose D. Andrews, chair, Camden Campus Advisory Board. “As our community grows and businesses consider relocating to Camden County, one of the primary concerns is the availability of quality health care. The opening of the Medical Plaza is evidence of the Health System’s vision to meet our community’s future health care needs.”
The Medical Plaza is currently at 70 percent capacity, which leaves room for growth. In addition to the Health System outpatient laboratory services, tenants include LightHorse Healthcare, Inc., Renue Plastic Surgery, Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Internal Medicine, Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Obstetrics & Gynecology and Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery.
C. William Mitchell, M.D., board-certified plastic surgeon with Renue Plastic Surgery, acknowledged how the Health System’s strategic placement of the Medical Plaza offices eases access for physicians and patients. “The convenience of having the Medical Plaza located on the Camden Campus is an advantage for physicians and patients. It allows physicians like myself more time to see patients in the office as well as those admitted to the hospital, and patients can easily obtain the outpatient services they need, such as lab work or imaging services, without the need to drive to another location.”
The evening’s ribbon cutting and dedication was followed by a community open house that included tours of the Medical Plaza physician offices.
“The expansion of the Camden Campus over the past few years is an outstanding example of how a small community hospital can provide excellent care,” says Gary R. Colberg, FACHE, president & CEO, Southeast Georgia Health System. “Due to the vision of our Hospital Authority board and the Camden Campus Advisory board, as well as our physicians and team members’ dedication to providing quality patient care, the Camden Campus was recently named 2013 Small Hospitalof the Year by the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals.”
“We are very thankful for the support of our community and pleased to be able to offer the finest health care teams in the best facilities possible,” added Colberg. “Working together works!”
