Welcome from the President & CEO
Welcome to the St. Joseph’s/Candler’s website.
By visiting this site, you have entered into a historic legacy of faith-based, healthcare excellence ---one that has been an integral part of the Savannah landscape for more than 325 cumulative years. At St. Joseph’s Hospital, Candler Hospital, Mary Telfair Women’s Hospital, The Georgia Infirmary or any of our numerous primary care or other specialty care practices throughout the area, our historic tradition of taking care of you and your family in the most compassionate manner is a well-known and well respected symbol of our faith based mission of treating illness and promoting wellness.
Here you will find useful information about the programs and services that our health system offers, including our vast array of state-of-the-art technologies and advanced medical procedures. In addition, you’ll find updated news about St. Joseph’s/Candler’s special events, health screenings, educational sessions and other wellness opportunities.
It is our intention that this site be used to its full potential---as a personal healthcare tool and reference portal to specific health information that educates and inspires one to live a smarter and healthier life.
Some note-worthy features of the site include an informative patient and family guide, an interactive personal wellness profile, a physician finder and referral assistance program, specialty services guides, a medical reference and health encyclopedia tool, special event calendars, as well as online links to our wellness publications and social media sites. Additionally, you can securely pay your hospital bill, make needed appointments, and with the advent of the iConnect consumer health portal, access your own personal health records.
At St. Joseph’s/Candler we offer smart medicine---the latest medical technologies and procedural advancements in disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Together, with highly-skilled physicians, a nationally recognized nursing staff, and an unsurpassed commitment to community outreach, we are proud to embrace our role as the region’s preferred healthcare provider.
It is our hope that this site serves you in much that same manner----as a useful healthcare tool for you and your family, whether you are physically present at one of our various locations, or merely taking a virtual tour via this site. As we continually strive to improve our online experience for our patients and their family members, your suggestions and comments are always welcome.
Once again, on behalf of our Board of Trustees, the St. Joseph’s/Candler Leadership team and each of our dedicated co-workers, welcome to St. Joseph’s/Candler.
