Sept. 6, 2019 – Southeast Georgia Health System leadership and board
members recently expressed their profound gratitude to Eric Andreae, M.D.
for sixteen years of dedication and volunteer physician service at Coastal
Medical Access Project (CMAP) and his significant contributions to the
patients it served.
Andreae moved to Glynn County in 1998 after retiring from his Manhattan
private practice and the St. Luke’s Hospital medical staff. In April
2003, Andreae began to serve as a volunteer physician at CMAP, providing
medical care to thousands of local residents that could not otherwise
afford care. Additionally, he provided leadership to CMAP’s MedBank
program that allowed countless patients to receive prescription medication
at no cost.
Coastal Medical Access Project was originally formed in 1999 when there
was no access to health care for uninsured patients. In June 2019, CMAP
services were transitioned to Coastal Community Health Services, Inc.,
a federally qualified health center located in Brunswick. Coastal Community
Health receives federal funding to treat uninsured and underinsured individuals
and offers patients access to health care resources, including primary
care, dental, vision and behavioral health services.
