Dec. 17, 2014 – Southeast Georgia Health System’s two hospitals
have been named in the 2014 Top Hospitals in the state by Georgia Trend.
The Brunswick Campus Hospital ranked 16th in the medium-size hospital
category (151-399 patient beds), and Camden Campus Hospital ranked 34th
in the small hospital category (fewer than 150 patient beds). The 2014
Top Hospitals were listed in the December issue of the business and lifestyle magazine.
“Our mission is to provide safe, quality, accessible, and cost-effective
care to meet the health needs of the people and communities we serve,”
said Gary R. Colberg, FACHE, president and CEO of the Southeast Georgia
Health System. “We appreciate rankings like this provided by Georgia
Trend because it affirms the hard work and commitment of our team members.”
Information used to determine the rankings came from publicly available
data on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service’s Hospital
Compare website (www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov). The Hospital Compare website
provides a snapshot of the quality care for more than 4,000 Medicare-certified
hospitals in the United States. The data includes quality of care, patient
satisfaction, mortality and readmission statistics, and hospital-acquired
infections and conditions. Georgia Trend magazine worked with researchers
and healthcare professionals at WellStar Health System in Marietta to
access and compile the data using a download from July 2014.
