Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick and Camden Campuses Make Georgia Trend’s Top Hospital List
Georgia Trend has recognized Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick and Camden campuses as two of the 2021 Top Hospitals in the state. The leading business and lifestyle magazine featured the hospital rankings in its December 2021 issue; the Brunswick Campus ranked 9th in the large hospital category (250 or more patient beds) and the Camden Campus ranked 5th in the small hospital category (fewer than 100 patient beds).
Michael D. Scherneck, president and chief executive officer, stated, “Despite all the challenges this past year has brought, our team members upheld our values to remain customer-focused, caring professionals, making Southeast Georgia Health System a top-ranking health care provider for the state.”
The Brunswick Campus is a 300-bed hospital nestled in the heart of Georgia’s Golden Isles. With more than 300 physicians on its medical staff representing nearly every major medical specialty, patients have access to a myriad of treatment options close to home. Among the wide range of services offered, specialty services include orthopaedic and spine care, maternity care, cancer care, robotic surgery (including CyberKnife®, da Vinci, and Mako), wound care with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and outpatient rehabilitation. The Health System also owns and operates Senior Care Center-Brunswick, a long-term care facility.
Located in St. Marys, the Camden Campus is a 40-bed acute care hospital with extensive quality services in a warm, welcoming setting. In addition to the 24-hour Emergency Care Center, specialty services include cancer care, orthopaedic and robotic joint replacement surgery, maternity care, outpatient rehabilitation, wound care with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and Senior Care Center-St. Marys.
“We strive to provide the communities we serve with top quality, safe, accessible care,” said Glenn Gann, R.N., MSN, vice president and administrator, Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus. “Being recognized as one of the Top Hospitals by Georgia Trend further demonstrates how committed our team members are to serving with excellence.”
For the 2021 Top Hospitals list, 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 including clinical process, patient experience, outcome and efficiency (CMS data downloaded on August 14, 2021) was used to rank hospitals of similar size and mission.
