Howard W. Sepp, Jr., FACHE, vice president & administrator,
Camden Campus, has announced his retirement from Southeast Georgia Health System, effective
July 1, 2020.
Sepp joined the Health System leadership team in 2003. During his tenure,

in 2012; addition of the Camden Medical Plaza in 2013; and construction
of a state-of-the-art Wound Care Center, slated to open later this month.
The Camden Campus has consistently maintained excellent ratings relative
to quality and patient satisfaction metrics under Sepp’s leadership.
“Serving as the vice president and administrator of the Camden Campus
has been the highlight of my career and I am very grateful for the opportunity
to serve these 17 years,” said Sepp.
Sepp has also played a key role in the Coastal Community Health affiliation
with Baptist Health System, working to achieve lucrative benefits for
the Health System communities it serves, including significant cost savings
in supply chain, information technology and employee benefits departments,
as well as improving care coordination through the Emergency Care Center.
“Howard has helped advance the level of service we offer to the Camden
community, which we will continue to develop in the future,” said
Michael D. Scherneck, president & CEO, Southeast Georgia Health System.
“I would like to personally thank Howard for his many years of service
to the Health System and the community and wish him and his wife, Judy,
all the best in retirement.”
In addition to his service with the Health System, Sepp has been active
in the Camden County community, participating in Leadership Camden and
holding positions with the Camden County Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary
Club of Camden County. Sepp also serves as Board Chairman of The Camden
Partnership, a non-profit organization that promotes community support
for the Naval Submarine Base at Kings Bay and the military missions in
Camden County. He is also a member of the Board for the Coastal Georgia
Council of the Boy Scouts of America and has served in numerous leadership
positions in his local church.
