East Georgia Regional Medical Center’s CEO, Stephen Pennington shares a letter of gratitude:
As another year comes to an end, I am saying thank you to the people who keep healthcare moving forward in Statesboro and our region.
Top of mind for me is a thank you to the outstanding members of our employee team at East Georgia Regional Medical Center. They are the foundation of our ability to deliver safe, quality healthcare and they continue going above and beyond in this second year of the pandemic. They attend to the ebb and flow of patient surges and adjust to ever-changing guidelines. They deliver care with compassion and do what needs to be done for our patients. They are heroes from my perspective: every day.
Thank you to our medical staff. We are blessed to have a breadth of talented primary care and specialty physicians practicing locally. They work tirelessly to be available for our patients, and they are committed to serve our community. We are fortunate to work alongside you.
Emergency medical personnel, nursing homes and assisted living centers, hospice, home health and other local health care organizations play a critical role in the continuum of medical services. We also appreciate the EGRMC volunteers who graciously donate their time and make EGRMC better place for your patients. We say thank you for all that you do in caring for our citizens.
Most important – thank you to our patients for the trust you place in us. Our team works hard every day for you and your loved ones. You are our focus and you continue to motivate us. It is a privilege to help you get well and live healthier. Thank you for choosing us to be part of your healthcare team. We will to continue to strive for Every Patient, Every Time, Always.
