Donations at Work
Does My Gift Make A Difference?
Throughout Archbold’s history, donations have made a significant impact on the quality of care and types of services offered to our citizens. A few specific areas where gifts have recently made a measurable difference are:
Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center
The Oncology Center was built with significant financial support from the Singletary family and many citizens in Thomasville and surrounding communities who wanted cancer care close to home. Since that time, gifts to the Archbold Foundation have established the Archbold Gamma Knife Center at the Oncology Center, helped add a state-of-the-art linear accelerator and expanded rural outreach programs.
Hospice of Southwest Georgia
Gifts help physicians and staff serve more patients and families with special needs that private insurance does not cover.
Archbold Scholarship Program
This program began because of a private contribution and grows to serve more students through gifts made to the program. Scholarships are awarded to students pursuing degrees in healthcare fields from accredited institutions. These students become Archbold employees upon completion of their degrees.
Archbold Hospital East Tower
Archbold’s East Tower houses the Loudermilk Heart & Vascular Center, providing advanced cardiac care -- from pre-hospital ECG to heart catheterization and stent placement to step-down and rehabilitation.
Archbold Hospital North Tower
The new North Tower represents the largest construction project in the history of Thomasville and Archbold’s largest capital investment in patient care since the original structure was built in 1925. The North Tower was thoughtfully designed to optimally serve patients, staff and physicians by substantially increasing operational space essential for delivering the best patient care. The newly constructed emergency department is four times the size of the former ED, and rivals the finest emergency departments in the nation for patient comfort, efficiency and service. The surgery department includes a larger waiting area designed with the patient’s family in mind, 15 patient rooms designated for pre-op and patient recovery, six surgical suites, a specialized urology suite and a post-anesthesia care unit (PACU)—with 11 bays designed to provide care for patients recovering from anesthesia. In addition, a fully integrated surgical suite was implemented specifically for the daVinci Si Surgical System, a robotic surgery system that offers physicians an innovative, effective minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. Four of the tower’s eight floors are devoted to inpatient patient care. These floors house 114 new patient rooms, including 12 IMCU rooms and 18 ICU rooms. The spacious private rooms provide adequate space for family members to participate in the healing process of the patients and afford a greater measure of privacy for the delivery of bedside treatments.
