George Tkalych – George H. Lanier Hospital

Posted: February 4, 2016 in Health care

George H. Lanier Hospital, now East Alabama Medical Center or EAMC, is a part of Lanier Health Services, an acute care hospital with an affiliated nursing home located in Valley, Alabama. George Tkalych, a retired Otolaryngologist from Columbus, Georgia, began his prestigious career of 32 years working at the hospital and believes it to be an excellent jumping point for his success. The hospital opened in 1950 and was the first hospital in the United States to be built under the Hill-Burton Hospital Survey and Construction Act. The hospital offers many services to its patients including, a 24-hour emergency room, an urgent care clinic, a rehabilitations facility for both in-patient and out-patient care, imaging, a women’s center, nursing home, and the Nasal and Sinus Institute.

In September of 2013, the hospital combined with East Alabama Medical Center to offer the best in patient care for its patients and EAMC now operates both facilities as a combined entity. EAMC and EAMC-Lanier serve a total of eight counties throughout East Alabama and West Georgia and have made every effort to be a leader in healthcare, both in quality and cost.

George Tkalych gained great experience from his time at George H. Lanier and enjoys the time he spent there. With the high quality of patient care and a mission to provide exceptional and compassionate care and healing to those in need, the hospital strives to maintain the utmost respect for its patients and to treat one another, both patients and colleagues with the same courtesy and respect.
