Georgia Regents filed CON for Columbia Co. hospital

Posted: Updated:

Georgia Regents Medical Center has filed an application for a Certificate of Need with the Georgia Department of Community Health to build what they describe as a 21st-century community teaching hospital in Columbia County.

Georgia Regents is one of three bidders vying for the new hospital, and the Columbia County Board of Commissioners voted in March to support any of the three that can successfully obtain a CON.

In a statement, Shawn P. Vincent, Sr., the hospital's Vice President of Partnerships, Internal Health Care and Strategic Affiliations, had this to say about the bid:

"We are committed to building a community teaching hospital and health care campus that will significantly contribute to the health and wellness of its residents and neighbors."
