The Happiest Role in Health Care
Healthy Partners, Summer 2019
Most health care professionals focus on overcoming challenging conditions
and treating diseases. Yet some doctors and nurses at Southeast Georgia
Health System experience their role a little differently. That’s
because they have the privilege of participating in a joyful miracle:
They deliver babies.
“We support our patients through a natural process with a happy goal,”
says Jonathan A. Egly, M.D., board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist
with Southeast Georgia Physician Associates– Obstetrics & Gynecology.
“Expecting mothers, unlike many patients, typically anticipate their
doctor’s appointment with great joy. There aren’t many specialists
who can boast that.”
Despite stigmas about the quality of care provided at rural versus city
hospitals, Dr. Egly believes the Health System’s Camden Campus provides
excellent care to pregnant women.
