Pierce County Health Center Changes Locations in Blackshear

Jesup, GA – The new location of the Pierce County Health Center (PCHC) is open and seeing patients at 333 West Carter Avenue. Having moved all personnel and office equipment last week from their former office in the Cotton Exchange, their first day of being fully staffed and operational in the new location was Monday, July 31. The PCHC is a specialty clinic providing patients appointments with specialists close to home.

“As we’ve grown from a small, rural hospital to more of a regional medical center, we’ve realized the importance of offering services to areas outside our home county. Thus, the Pierce County Health Center. By expanding our presence with physical locations in neighboring cities, we hope to service the medical needs of residents in Pierce, Ware, Brantley, Appling and Long even better than before.”

Different specialized physicians will use the center on specific days. Current specialties include obstetrics/gynecology, ENT, general surgery, neurosurgery and dermatology. All patients will be seen by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling the PCHC at 912-807-7242.

Wayne Memorial Hospital, whose mission is to provide high quality health care services to all patients, built a state-of-the-art facility in 2007. It is the third largest employer in Wayne County with 400 employees, 84 beds and is a two-time winner of the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals Small Hospital of the Year Award

Wayne Memorial Wins Georgia Safe to Sleep Designation

Parents plan for months, perhaps even years, for a new baby to join their family. While they plan the nursery, and pick out possible names for their baby, they can take comfort in knowing the staff at Wayne Memorial is also planning for their baby’s best beginning via proper sleep training.

Through Georgia’s Safe to Sleep Campaign, the obstetrics department at the hospital educates parents onsite about creating a safe sleep environment for their newborn and model proper sleeping practices as well. This is, in fact, one of the four primary objectives of the campaign. The other three are:

* Prevent sleep-related infant deaths in Georgia

* Disseminate accurate and consistent messages that encourage families to make informed decisions about infant sleep and

* Increase access to resources that support behaviors that protect infants from sleep-related deaths.

Annually, more than 4,000 infants in the United States, pass away suddenly and unexpectedly. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, Georgia averaged three infant deaths per week due to sleep-related causes (as of 2014). This collaborative project is led by six entities in the state: the Georgia Children’s Cabinet, Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia Department of Public Health, Georgia Hospital Association and the Georgia Obstetrical and Gynecological Society.

We voluntarily took this campaign on in our hospital because we believe babies deserve the best possible start to life,” says Anita Brewer, Wayne Memorial’s Ob/Gyn Department Manager. “It may take our staff a few extra minutes each day to ensure we’re modeling and teaching proper sleep practices, but we know it’s worth the effort. We want parents to rest assured knowing when they leave our hospital with their newborn baby, they have all the tools and education on proper sleep training as part of their overall infant care.”

Wayne is one of 75 hospitals selected as a Georgia Safe to Sleep Hospital. For more on the program, visit
