In the late 2000's, Effingham Health System, a community hospital in Springfield, Georgia, was in desperate need of renovation and expansion of a significantly outdated facility. A HUD 242 loan funded JJCA's design and construction of a 57,621 square-foot addition, allowing the hospital to continue supporting the community with state-of-the-art care. Fast forward to 2021 and Effingham is one of just four hospitals nationwide - and the only community hospital - to receive the 2020 Richard L. Doyle Award for innovation and leadership in healthcare. Effingham's recognition comes as a result of their innovative work to implement patient-focused guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are pleased to be working again on a project with this award-winning facility and we congratulate them on this well-deserved honor.
