Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus Makes Georgia Trend’s Top Hospital List
Southeast Georgia Health System’s Camden Campus was recently named one of the 2020 Top Hospitals in the state by Georgia Trend. This leading business and lifestyle magazine featured the hospital rankings in the December 2020 issue; the Camden Campus ranked 14th in the small hospital category (fewer than 100 patient beds).
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of Georgia Trend’s Top Hospitals,” says Glenn Gann, R.N., MSN, vice president and administrator, Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus. “We strive to meet the health care needs of the people we serve and are committed to bringing leading-edge technology to our community. This ranking affirms the hard work and commitment of our team members, especially after the challenging year we’ve all faced due to COVID-19.”
Located in St. Marys, the Camden Campus is a 40-bed hospital with extensive quality services in a friendly, warm setting. Recent additions to the Camden Campus include a new Wound Care Center and ROSA® Knee robotic surgery technology for knee replacements.
The Camden Campus medical staff includes over 130 community and employed physicians representing many major medical specialties. In addition to an emergency room with private rooms and HAZMAT decontamination units, services include bariatrics, breast care with 3D mammography, cancer care with radiation and medical oncology, cardiopulmonary, gastroenterology and endoscopy, intensive care, labor and delivery, orthopaedic surgery and joint replacement, outpatient rehabilitation (physical, occupational, speech and aquatic therapy), radiology, sleep management and surgical services.
For the 2020 Top Hospitals list, which includes hospitals that provide a range of services, Georgia Trend evaluated each hospital in Georgia that participates in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Value Based Purchasing program. A total performance score based on information that included clinical process, patient experience, outcome and efficiency (CMS data downloaded on August 19, 2020) was used to rank hospitals of similar size and mission.
