Health and Wellness at St. Joseph’s/Candler
During the decades, our expert co-workers and physicians have been treating people in Southeast Georgia, we’ve developed many programs to keep you healthy. That is why our mission is "Rooted in God’s love, we treat illness and promote wellness for all people."
What is wellness? At SJ/C, we want your entire being to be healthy, not just your physical body. We want you to be strong so you can help fight off disease when it comes around. Most importantly, we want you to be actively thinking about you health rather that it being an afterthought.
If you haven’t been to a doctor in a while, we suggest you look at the doctors in our Physician Network - Primary Care to set up a medical home and they can do a good assessment of your current health.
