Also, SGMC is undertaking an expansion worth $15m of its Berrien County hospital, including a new two-storey emergency room addition.

With construction scheduled to be completed next year, the expansion aims to attract more physicians and specialists to enhance the hospital’s network.

SGMC president and CEO Ronald Dean said: “In June, our trauma programme expects to complete requirements and become the State of Georgia’s next designated Level III Trauma Center.”

“According to the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death for individuals up to 45 years old.”
