"Growing healthier together."
South Georgia Medical Center is privileged to own and operate the SGMC Berrien Campus, a community hospital serving the residents of Berrien and surrounding counties. The 63-bed hospital has 51 acute care beds and 12 geriatric/psychiatric beds that are served by primary care physicians and physician’s assistants, behavioral health specialists, hospitalists, skilled nurses and support staff.
As a campus of South Georgia Medical Center, the SGMC Berrien Campus adopted the policies and protocols of the Medical Center. This standardization in patient care has facilitated and streamlined referrals throughout the four-hospital health system. The SGMC Berrien Campus was recently recognized for outstanding patient care by the Georgia Hospital Association’s Partnership for Health and Accountability Core Measures Honor Roll.
In 2014, the exterior of the hospital was modernized to make patient access easier and better reflect the contemporary, patient-focused care found inside. In addition to inpatient hospital services, the SGMC Berrien Campus offers a 24-hour emergency room, a full service lab, a full service radiology department with new digital mammography, rehab services and endoscopy services.
