Hospital’s Long County Health Center Relocates to New, Larger Building in Center of Ludowici

Just a stone’s throw from the red light in Ludowici sits a stand-alone, newly constructed 1,785 square foot building ready to continue serving patients. The Long County Health Center (LCHC), a division of Wayne Memorial Hospital, recently moved into the space from its prior home a couple of miles away in a strip shopping center. Built by Overholt General Contractors, the LCHC’s square footage and number of treatments rooms in the new building is more than double what the previous space afforded, staff said. The new location at 84 South McDonald Street places the Long County Health Center in the middle of town and boasts 5 exam rooms. The center is overseen by Dr. Daniel Green and Shelly Taylor, both with the Emergency Department at Wayne Memorial. Onsite every day at the clinic for daily care is Family Nurse Practitioner Sue Williamson, Registered Nurse Cindy Bacon, and Office Manager Sharon Rogers. While the physical location has changed, the phone number and hours for the LCHC are unchanged. They are (912) 302-4067 and Monday through Thursday, 8 am – 5 pm, and Friday, 8 am – 1 pm, respectively.

“We continue to offer personal, hometown care here at the Long County Health Center,” says Williamson. “We can offer health care for acute, non-emergent issues and refer the patient to physicians appropriate.” Rogers adds, “We accept most insurances, Medicaid, Medicare and Tricare. Being close to Ft Stewart, the Tricare acceptance is key for many of our patients. We offer sports physicals, blood draws and a wellness program for Long County and City of Ludowici Employees.” Bacon shares that the office staff often sees people suffering from the flu, colds, high blood pressure, diabetes, allergies and similar issues. “We take care of some people for years,” she says. The onsite staff’s combined years of experience in the healthcare field is a staggering 96 (28 for Rogers, 35 for Bacon, 33 for Williamson). Accepting appointments or walk-ins, the LCHC is known for its ability to see patients quickly. The center is popular with local residents, teachers, military families and their extended families.
