Peach County Bids Farewell to Old, Hello to New

Events Scheduled for Opening of New Medical Center of Peach County 

MACON, GA (Thursday, June 6, 2013) – Two events have been scheduled during the month of June to allow residents of Peach and surrounding counties to say goodbye to Peach Regional Medical Center (PRMC), and hello to the new Medical Center of Peach County (MCPC).

A Farewell to PRMC will be held on Thursday, June 6 from 7:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Medical and hospital staff, along with friends of the hospital and members of the community, are invited to PRMC, 601 Bluebird Blvd. in Ft. Valley, to share their memories of PRMC and its contributions to the community. Refreshments will be served, and the event will end with a candlelight ceremony, singing and prayer.

The community is also invited to a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for MCPC, 1960 Highway 247 Connector in Byron, on Thursday, June 13 at 9:00 a.m. After the ribbon cutting, attendees may tour their new hospital and enjoy refreshments catered by Lane Southern Orchards in the dining room.

“Peach Regional Medical Center has played a large role in this community for decades. We want to take the time to honor the community's memories of their hospital, and invite them to take ownership of the new Medical Center of Peach County, its larger facility and its expanded services,” said Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, FACHE, CEO of Central Georgia Health System (CGHS).

MCPC will offer the residents of Peach and surrounding counties access to a new, modern, 25-bed hospital complete with a larger emergency center and an operating room suite, expanded outpatient services and all-private rooms. This new facility will be operated through a partnership with CGHS.

“We are delighted in all that the partnership between Central Georgia Health System and Peach Regional Medical Center has achieved – the promise of greater benefits to the citizens of this area through the coordination of a tertiary regional hospital and caring professionals at the local level,” said Elbert McQueen, Vice President of Regional Development for CGHS.

“This is an exciting time for our community and for everyone who supported Peach Regional's goal of building a new hospital to provide state-of-the-art care for our area. We are thrilled that our partnership with Central Georgia Health System has made this dream a reality,” said Nancy Peed, CEO of MCPC.
