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. Pictured

Hopkins Nunnally; Lee Nunnally; Hugh Nunnally; Health System President
and CEO Gary R. Colberg, FACHE; Glynn-Brunswick Memorial Hospital Chair
