If an SGSC student-athlete suffers an injury where surgery becomes necessary, they are not only in the very best of hands with Dr. Barber and his team at Southeastern Orthopedics, but their procedure will be performed in one of Georgia’s elite hospital facilities; Coffee Regional Medical Center in Douglas. Located only 1.5 miles from SGSC’s Douglas campus, CRMC has consistently been recognized for their exceptional level of patient care and outcomes. In February 2014, CRMC was recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review as the #11 hospital in the country and the #1 hospital in the Georgia in regards to clinical process of care, patient experience and outcomes. In December 2012, Georgia Trend named CRMC the #1 Top Small Hospital in Georgia. These are not new accolades, but a continuation of state and national recognitions that span more than a decade.
CRMC is also one of the finest orthopedic surgical facilities in the Southeast. Having recently spent more than $1 million on brand new, state-of-the-art equipment, Coffee Regional has ensured that the surgeons with Optim are utilizing the most advanced surgical instruments.
