Fulfilling the "Care" in Health Care: Hospice of Golden Isles Recognizes Health Care Workers

May 11, 2020 – During the last several months, Americans have practiced social distancing and self-isolation in the attempt to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, especially to those who have underlying health conditions that put them most at risk. A testament to our community, however, is the ability to demonstrate gratitude and grace even under tremendous stress, such as we have endured the latter half of 2020. Hospice of the Golden Isles is one such community organization putting the “care” in health care.

A health care organization themselves, Hospice of the Golden Isles appreciates the sacrifice that health care workers make everyday, putting their own lives at risk for the privilege of helping to improve the health of the community. In honor of that appreciation, they donated four banners to Southeast Georgia Health System to be displayed at their Brunswick and Camden campuses and Senior Care Centers in Brunswick and St. Marys.

“Hospice of the Golden Isles greatly values our longstanding strategic partnership with Southeast Georgia Health System,” says Karen Miller, CEO, Hospice of the Golden Isles. “During the COVID-19 crisis, our Board of Directors and team are especially grateful for the Health System’s leadership and for the dedication of their team members that demonstrates what it means to be healthcare heroes in the midst of unprecedented challenges and uncertainty.”

Hospice of the Golden Isles provides expert, compassionate care for patients with advanced illnesses and their families in Glynn, McIntosh, Camden, Brantley and Charlton counties. They work in coordination with Southeast Georgia Health System to provide a seamless continuum of care.

“We so appreciate Karen’s gesture and kind words. Hospice of the Golden Isles is fighting on the front lines as well, providing expert care for our community’s hospice population during this health crisis,” says Michael D. Scherneck, President & CEO, Southeast Georgia Health System. “And we thank all of our health care workers, at our facilities and throughout the community, for their dedication and sacrifice.”
