Event Scheduled for Opening of New Medical Center of Peach County 

MACON, GA (Wednesday, June 12, 2013) – The Peach County community is invited to a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for The Medical Center of Peach County (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 Lanes Southern Orchard in the dining room.

“Peach Regional Medical Center has played a large role in this community for decades. We want to invite the community 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.
