The Chamber Board of Directors welcomed South Georgia Medical Center CEO, Ronnie Dean to the Chamber to congratulate him and the regional medical center on their recent 4-star overall quality rating.
The prestigious title was awarded by the US Medicare and Medicaid Services. SGMC is the only hospital in the area to reach this level. SGMC ranks among the top 30% of hospitals nationally.
Chamber Board Chairman, Lee McArthur, is excited for what this not only means for SGMC, but the entire community.
“Our local business community supports SGMC not only because a growing community must have quality health care , but because we believe that the success of SGMC and the entire medical services and support sector is the key to prosperity in South Georgia in years to come,” McArthur stated.
With Dean being new in his position, this was the first time that many Chamber Board members had met him.
Incoming 2020 board member, Lisa Register, was left with a great first impression.
”We were incredibly impressed with Ronnie Dean. He is very knowledgeable yet enthusiastic and easily approachable. He is exactly what Valdosta has been waiting for,” said Register.
The board looks forward to having Dean at SGMC for years to come and was thrilled to hear that he is equally as invested in the local business community.
