Master Renovation & Expansion Project
A Vision for the Future
Southeast Georgia Health System is always working to meet the health care
needs of our community by growing with the region. A new master expansion
and renovation project will allow the Health System to do just that on
the Brunswick Campus. With 73,734 square feet of new construction being
built upon our existing footprint and 141,377 square feet of renovated
space, the improvements include:
- 16 operating rooms
- Additional post-anesthesia and pre- and post-recovery bays with greater privacy
- A new main entry at Parkwood Drive which will consist of a canopy and a
- Will expand 12,141 square feet
- Increase from 35 to 50 treatment rooms, including two trauma rooms
Patient care floors
- The rooms on the fourth and fifth floors of the St. Simons Tower will be
converted to 64 spacious private patient rooms.
The $125 million project also incorporates infrastructure upgrades within
the central energy plant to accommodate the expansion and will be constructed
in such a way that two additional floors and patient rooms could be added
in the future should there be an increased demand for services. The project
is slated to begin in early 2018 with an anticipated completion in late 2020.
Please note, all dates are approximate. Website will be updated regularly.
