November 24, 2018 - Southeast Georgia Health System, in conjunction with the Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce, hosted a Ribbon Cutting and Open House for its new Palliative Care Center office. The Center provides inpatient and outpatient palliative care in partnership with Golden Isles Palliative Care. These programs coordinate with the patient’s attending physician to provide patients and families with extra support and the opportunity to discuss and establish the goals of care.
 
 Palliative medicine is specialized treatment for people with chronic or serious illness and has become the fastest-growing medical specialty in the United States. John E. Shaner, M.D., medical director of the Health System’s Palliative Care Center, explained that palliative care is focused on providing comfort and support to patients living with a serious illness at any stage in their disease management.
 
 The Palliative Care Center is located on the Health System’s Brunswick Campus in the Outpatient Care Center, 2500 Starling St., Suite 305. For more information, call 912-466-5190.
