Category Archives: Uncategorized Tanner Receives Support from Georgia National Guard 7:26 pm

Georgia National Guard deployed to Tanner hospitals, supporting nutrition services and environmental services departments amid critical staffing shortages.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities across the nation experienced severe staffing shortages.

The pandemic has compounded the problem.

To help alleviate the issues in Georgia, Gov. Brian Kemp issued an emergency order last month to deploy more than 100 Georgia National Guard troops to healthcare facilities across the state.

On the heels of that order, Tanner Health System submitted a request for support. On Monday, the health system welcomed a unit of about 18 National Guard troops to support the health system’s nutrition services and environmental services staff.

“We are grateful to have the National Guard’s support,” said Loy Howard, president and CEO for Tanner Health System. “Throughout this pandemic, Gov. Kemp has been keenly interested in making sure hospitals in Georgia have the resources they need to get through this. It means a great deal to us to have these men and women in uniform here to help as our community struggles through this COVID crisis.”

Gary Thomas, vice president of campus and support services for Tanner, echoed the sentiment.

“We are proud to have these servicemen and women here to support our frontline teams,” said Thomas, adding that Tanner has also requested support through the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) for clinical services.

Thomas also expressed thanks to Carroll County EMA Director Tim Padgett, who assisted in getting Tanner’s requests for personnel and equipment, such as ventilators, submitted through GEMA, and for his support in coordinating the requests throughout the process.

The deployment of the unit currently at Tanner is set through Dec. 3, 2021, but the governor can extend that date if Tanner’s need persists.

The current unit of service members will be deployed at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica.

Answering the Call: ‘Always Ready. Always There.’
Established in 1636, the National Guard is part of the reserve arm of the United States Army and the United States Air Force.

The National Guard responds to national emergencies and supports military operations around the U.S. and abroad.

When activated by a state’s governor, the Guard can also be called into action during statewide emergencies, as they have during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the leadership of those called to Tanner are Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Camp and 1st Lt. Joshua Julien, officer in charge, from the HHC 2-121 Infantry Battalion of Forsyth, Georgia.

Each service member has a long list of deployments with the Georgia National Guard, with Sgt. Camp serving for nearly 14 years and Lt. Julien for about eight years.

Over the past year and a half, both Guardsmen have answered the call of duty time and time again, deploying with their teams to hospitals across the state.

This mission is no different.

“We volunteer to step up to help the community,” said Lt. Julien. “We’ve been working in hospitals that are understaffed and overpopulated, but we are here to help relieve some of the stress for staff at Tanner and help patients get the care they need.”

Before the troops assumed their posts across the health system, Howard thanked them for their service and support and caring for the community.

“You’re going to make a huge difference in the lives of the patients and families you meet and interact with at Tanner,” said Howard. “It means so much to have you here and to see our men and women in uniform take the time to help us through this crisis.”

SGMC Hosts Saturday COVID-19 Vaccine Drive-Thru 1:38 pm

South Georgia Medical Center will host a COVID-19 vaccination drive-thru event at the SGMC Main Campus on Saturday, Sept. 18 from 9am-3pm. All eligible persons are encouraged to visit the site to receive their free COVID-19 vaccine.

 

SGMC has administered more than 40,000 vaccinations since they became available last December. However, Lowndes County is currently only at 31 percent of residents fully vaccinated. Although breakthrough cases can occur in fully vaccinated individuals, data continues to show that vaccinated persons are far less likely to require hospitalization, and 99 percent less likely to require mechanical ventilation.

 

COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future.

 

Of all positive COVID-19 tests performed by the health system over the last six weeks, 82 percent were among those 12 years and older who are eligible to receive the vaccine.

 

“We have seen an uptick in the daily  number of vaccination appointments through our Smith Northview location, but we seek to provide additional resources to offer convenient options for the public to receive their vaccine,” said Director of Infection Prevention Scarlett Rivera. “Our drive-thru events have proven extremely beneficial, allowing us the opportunity to vaccinate upwards of 800 people in one day!”

 

SGMC will be administering the FDA approved Pfizer vaccine and interested individuals can pre-register online at sgmc.org, call 229-433-1068, or simply visit the SGMC Main Campus located at 2417 N. Patterson Street in Valdosta on Saturday, Sept. 18 from 9am-3pm.

NORTHEAST GEORGIA HEALTH SYSTEM LAUNCHES NEW HEART & VASCULAR INSTITUTE 8:08 pm

Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) continues to lead the way in innovative heart care with the launch of the state’s most forward-thinking heart and vascular program: Georgia Heart Institute.

 

“While NGHS has a long and rich tradition of providing exceptional heart and vascular care, Georgia Heart Institute represents a bold new vision for the future of our region – and beyond,” says Habib Samady, MD, interventional cardiologist and President of Georgia Heart Institute. “Our priority is continuing to provide top quality care, but we’re also focusing on expanding access to appointments, providing an exceptional patient experience, and increasing collaboration between all our cardiologist and surgeons.”

 

All 14 locations of The Heart Center of NGMC are now called Georgia Heart Institute. While the practice name has changed, the addresses and phone numbers are still the same – and the cardiologists, advanced practitioners and staff include the same people many already know and trust.

 

The renowned cardiothoracic surgeons of Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG), the vascular surgeons of NGPG and Longstreet Clinic, and other aligned practices will also collaborate through the Georgia Heart Institute – but those practice names have not changed. Other aligned practices include: Cardiovascular Clinic of North Georgia, Gainesville Heart & Vascular Group and Sibley Heart Center Cardiology.

 

“We have a lot of smart and talented people who already touch our heart and vascular services, and we are recruiting more national and international talent to join them,” says Dr. Samady. “We’re also continuing to grow our research teams to expand our involvement in clinical trials, lead more innovative studies, and put further emphasis on developing and exploring new technologies. Georgia Heart Institute’s foundation of high-quality care provided every day will be complemented by a spirit of innovation – so we’re always looking ahead to the next amazing breakthrough.”

 

“The launch of the Georgia Heart Institute exemplifies our clinicians’ commitment to improving lives today and for generations to come,” says Carol Burrell, NGHS President & CEO. “Plus, the name more accurately reflects the many people who already travel from across the entire state to seek expert care from our cardiologists and surgeons.”

 

If you have an appointment currently scheduled with The Heart Center of NGMC – now called Georgia Heart Institute – on or after September 7, there’s nothing you need to do.

 

You can learn more about the Georgia Heart Institute and schedule appointments online at georgiaheartinstitute.org or call 770-534-2020. Video appointments are available as well.

Atrium Health Navicent Offers Monoclonal Antibody Treatments for COVID-19 1:11 pm

Atrium Health Navicent is now offering outpatient COVID-19 monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatments at five central Georgia locations.

If administered within the first week of COVID-19 symptoms onset, the one-time therapy is highly effective in neutralizing the virus and preventing symptoms from worsening, helping prevent progression of the disease that might otherwise require hospitalization. The treatment is administered through intravenous infusion, delivering medication directly into a patient’s bloodstream.

The therapy is intended for use in individuals who have recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus who are at high risk for developing severe COVID-19 illness, or those who are unvaccinated and have been exposed to someone who has tested positive.

“Atrium Health Navicent is committed to supporting our community’s health and wellness as we continue to battle COVID-19. We’re proud to offer mAb treatments as another tool to help reduce the impacts of this devastating illness,” said Atrium Health Navicent President and CEO Delvecchio Finley. “While this treatment is highly effective, we also urge everyone to become vaccinated. Vaccination remains the best proven method for reducing the risk of serious COVID-19 illness and reducing the pandemic’s spread.”

The therapy, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration by emergency use authorization, is not a replacement for vaccination. A Phase 3 clinical trial showed that the antibody therapy reduced the risk of hospitalization or death by 70 percent or more, in patients who received the drug intravenously, compared to those who received a placebo.

Monoclonal antibody treatment is available via a physician’s referral for eligible adults and children aged 12 and older at Atrium Health Navicent The Medical Center, Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin, Atrium Health Navicent Peach and Monroe County Hospital, an Atrium Health Navicent Partner.

“As the Delta variant continues to spread through central and South Georgia, mAb treatment offers another care option to help save lives,” said Dr. Patrice Walker, Chief Medical Officer for Atrium Health Navicent The Medical Center. “It is important to remember, this treatment doesn’t replace COVID vaccines as our community’s most powerful tool to prevent serious coronavirus infection.”

Atrium Health Navicent Physicians Urge Patients to Consider Virtual, Primary and Urgent Care Options for Non-Emergency Care 2:47 pm

Physicians urge patients to seek out the best care option for their needs

 

With the local rise of COVID-19 cases and subsequent increase in hospital emergency room patient volumes, Atrium Health Navicent encourages patients to consider virtual, primary and urgent care options for non-emergency care. In the event of an emergency, patients should call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room.

In addition to primary care services provided by the Atrium Health Navicent Medical Group’s physicians’ offices located across central and South Georgia, Virtual Visits are available for health conditions typically treated through primary and urgent care, such as allergies, bronchitis, sinus infections, strep throat, pink eye, hypertension, gout, rashes and stomach discomfort.

First launched by Atrium Health Navicent last spring, the platform allows patients to connect to board-certified doctors using their phone, tablet or computer.

Local providers from the Atrium Health Navicent Medical Group, including primary care providers and pediatricians, consult with patients using the platform between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, ensuring patients have access to their trusted local doctors during regular business hours.

Since its launch in 2020, patients have competed more than 4,500 Virtual Visits.

The Virtual Visits platform is designed as an on-demand service, with no need to make an appointment. Patients can access Virtual Visit by visiting myatriumhealth.org or using the MyAtriumHealth app available through the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Virtual Visit should not be used for life-threatening conditions. In the event of an emergency, call 911.

“Virtual Visits offers an alternative to traditional, in-person visits to a physician’s office, allowing patients to consult with a doctor, receive a real-time assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan,” said Dr. Dean Kindler, Senior Vice President for Operations and Physician-in-Chief for Atrium Health Navicent Medical Group. “This service offers quality care from the convenience of home, something many health consumers have found helpful during the pandemic.”

Many specialty physicians’ offices also offer virtual visits. For more information, patients are encouraged to ask their physician’s office directly.

Children seeking treatment for ear infection, shortness of breath, strep throat, urinary tract infection and wheezing must still see a provider at an in-person office visit.

“The increased virtual care options available to patients in central and South Georgia – virtual visits, virtual behavioral health, virtual hospital and virtual pediatric infectious disease consultations – are direct benefits and examples of the added value afforded by our strategic combination with Atrium Health,” said Dr. Sanford Duke, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer for Atrium Health Navicent. “Virtual care options expand our expertise, offering immeasurable benefits for our patients and the communities we serve.”

Atrium Health Navicent also offers care at three urgent care locations:

Southeast Georgia Health System Expands Access to COVID-19 Antibody Therapy Treatment 6:41 pm

Vaccines are still the very best way to prevent COVID-19 or to avoid severe illness, hospitalization or death from the virus. However, for those individuals who test positive for coronavirus and have underlying health conditions, Southeast Georgia Health System offers an outpatient monoclonal antibody therapy that may help avoid hospitalization or severe illness.

 

Regeneron monoclonal antibody therapy (Regeneron infusion) helps the immune system stop COVID-19 from spreading in people with mild to moderate symptoms. The antibodies are synthetic proteins that are manufactured in a lab. The therapy is not new, doctors have long used this treatment to deliver drugs or radioactive substances directly to cancer cells. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given monoclonal antibody therapy emergency use authorization for the treatment of COVID-19. According to the FDA, clinical trials showed that COVID-19 patients who received antibody infusions had a significant reduction in hospitalization and death compared to patients who received a placebo.

 

“We have seen patients with significant comorbidities, meaning those who have two or more diseases or medical conditions, avoid hospitalization and have reduced recovery time as a result of infusion,” says Beth Hall, R.T.(R), manager, Physician Practices, Southeast Georgia Physician Associates. “In some patients, the treatment also helps prevent coronavirus complications.”

 

There’s an important exception, however. “The treatment is most effective when given as soon as possible after the onset of symptoms and a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result. Ideally, within five days but not more than 10 days after onset,” Hall explains.

 

The Health System began offering antibody infusions in November 2020 at Glynn Immediate Care Center in Brunswick. Due to the increased number of positive COVID-19 patients, the therapy is now also offered in a dedicated section of the Brunswick Campus hospital.

 

“Our goal is to treat as many high-risk patients as possible to prevent symptoms from progressing to severe illness and hospitalization,” says Daniel Miller, M.D., emergency medicine physician at Glynn Immediate Care Center and member of the Health System’s medical staff. “We’re doing everything we can to prevent further COVID-19-related deaths in our community.”

Hall adds, “We can currently accommodate up to 30 patients daily, and hope to begin offering treatments seven days a week soon. Treatments take between 20 minutes to an hour, with an hour of observation afterwards.”

 

Do You Qualify for Treatment?

Monoclonal antibodies are used to treat mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 in non-hospitalized adults and adolescents (12 years and older) with a BMI greater than 25. Vaccinated and unvaccinated high-risk individuals can receive antibody infusions if they meet the following criteria:

 

Qualified individuals must be referred by their primary care doctor or evaluated at Glynn Immediate Care Center. The referral must include an infusion order, a copy of the positive COVID-19 test result, and an office note from the physician confirming the patient qualifies for the therapy. The outpatient antibody therapy is only available by appointment; no walk-ins are accepted. There is no cost to the patient for the therapy; however, an administration fee will be filed with the patient’s insurance company.

 

An Ounce of Prevention

It has been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s certainly true with the COVID-19 vaccine. While there is no cure for COVID-19 currently, the vaccine provides significant protection. And, if someone is vaccinated and becomes infected with the Delta variant, they are less likely to develop serious symptoms or be hospitalized. For a pandemic weary nation, getting more people vaccinated is the surest, quickest way to protect our country, our loved ones, our economy and return to a sense of normalcy.

 

The Health System offers free COVID-19 vaccinations on the following days:

 

 

To schedule an appointment, visit sghs.org/covid19-vaccine. The vaccine is also available at Georgia Department of Public Health vaccination clinic locations. To find a clinic, go to gachd.org/vaccine or call 912-230-5506.

 

For more information about the monoclonal antibody infusion, please call the Health System’s COVID-19 hotline at 912-466-7222.

SGMC Offering Two COVID-19 Vaccine Drive Thru Locations on Saturday 7:18 pm

South Georgia Medical Center will operate two COVID-19 vaccination drive-thru locations on Saturday, Aug. 28 from 9am-3pm. All unvaccinated persons 12 and older are encouraged to visit either the SGMC Main Campus or SGMC Smith Northview Campus to receive their free COVID-19 vaccine.   

  

The hospital says they already have 500 people scheduled to receive their second COVID-19 dose at the Smith Northview location, which is why the decision was made to open up a second location on that day. Event organizers say they have a goal of 1,000 total vaccinations for this Saturday.  

  

SGMC will also be administering the third COVID-19 vaccine to individuals who are immunocompromised according to CDC guidelines.   

  

COVID-19 positive hospitalization numbers within the health system have doubled in the last two weeks and testing demand has hit record highs with more than 1,000 tests performed daily.  

  

“The only way out of the pandemic is to increase our region’s vaccination rates. The data at our hospital is on trend with the nation, vaccinated individuals are far less likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19,” said SGMC Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian Dawson. “Our teams have been working around the clock with increasing volumes, tests, and treatment, so I believe the fact that they are willing to work an additional Saturday to help vaccinate our community speaks volumes.”  

  

SGMC will be administering the Pfizer vaccine and interested individuals can pre-register online at sgmc.org, call 229-433-1068, or simply visit the SGMC Main Campus located at 2417 N. Patterson Street or the SGMC Smith Northview Campus located at 4280 N. Valdosta Road in Valdosta on Saturday, Aug. 28 from 9am-3pm.

SGMC Offering COVID-19 Third Dose to Immunocompromised People 2:32 pm

South Georgia Medical Center is now offering an additional shot of the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals who are moderately to severely immunocompromised as per CDC guidelines.  

 

According to the CDC, people who are currently receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood, have received an organ transplant and are taking medication for their immune system, have received a stem cell transplant within the last two years, have moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency, have advanced or untreated HIV, or active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs for the immune system will fall into this category.  

 

“This group of people are at high risk to contract the virus, and we’re very happy to be able to offer them the third dose. We’ve seen many different types of people come get the first two vaccines and they’re just so excited to receive them, now being able to offer an extra dose of protection to those most vulnerable will just be another step in helping us move past this pandemic,” says Director of Infection Control Scarlett Rivera.  

 

SGMC is administering third doses of both Pfizer and Moderna and will provide individuals with the same mRNA vaccine they received for their first two doses as a continuation of their series.   

 

SGMC Smith Northview Campus located on 4280 North Valdosta Road is administering COVID-19 vaccinations to individuals who qualify between Monday-Friday, from 9:30am-4pm.  

 

SGMC will continue to follow CDC guidelines as eligibility for the third dose expands.
