5 people in hard hatsAugust 2, 2018 – Sometimes it’s necessary to let go of the old to make room for the new. As Southeast Georgia Health System continues to move forward with its Master Renovation and Expansion Project on the Brunswick Campus, it is necessary to demolish the Human Resources department to begin construction of the new Surgical Services Tower and Inpatient Floor.

“In addition to building a new Surgical Services Tower and Inpatient Floor, we are adding advanced technologies to better meet the health needs of our community,” explained Michael D. Scherneck, president & CEO, Southeast Georgia Health System. “With growth comes change, and as a result some of our departments and services, such as Human Resources, will move to new locations to accommodate new construction. We evaluate the impact of these moves on our team members, patients and visitors and do our best to enhance and add value to the new space.”

Scherneck added, “As our community grows, our patient volumes also grow. Our Master Renovation and Expansion Project also includes improvements to our Emergency Care Center and existing patient floors to increase space, comfort and privacy. We’re also adding more parking areas for patients, visitors and our team members.”

“In August, we will begin a phased relocation of the hospital’s main entrance from Parkwood Drive to Kemble Avenue. When that happens, we will add complimentary valet parking Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the hospital’s new main entrance on Kemble Avenue,” said Scherneck. “We are attempting to identify solutions for all the inconveniences our construction creates, but we ask everyone to keep in mind the inconveniences are temporary and the outcome will be a better hospital for our community.”
