—JERRY HOGAN

Working on the farm with his grandson, Jerry suffered a severe head trauma. He was on blood thinners and started bleeding excessively. Jerry recalls being reassured by the confidence and professionalism of Effingham Hospital’s Emergency Room staff.

THE NEWLY REDESIGNED EMERGENCY ROOM is staffed by emergency medicine physicians with experience working for major trauma centers. Access to the hospital’s new Surgery Center meant Jerry’s head wound was treated from start to finish at Effingham Hospital.

Chamber Leads the Way

they work with many other community groups to create a more vibrant place to live and work. Your Chamber also hosts Business After Hours events throughout the year, giving businesses a place to come and network with their peers as well as learn what’s new in the industry. What was once a primarily rural county has become a mix of country and city. Because we can boast of an exceptional educational system, people have flocked here and added their cultures and life experiences to the fabric of people who now make up Effingham County. You can explore the natural beauty of the woodlands and marshes or enjoy a glass of wine with a fine meal. Play a round of golf, wet a line in one of dozens of ponds and lakes, or take to the rivers for some boating fun. Get out and see how many of the county’s historical markers you can locate. (Did you know that George Washington really did sleep here?) Get to know Effingham County and her people — people who, in many cases, trace their history back to the earliest days of the colony. Her history spans the colonial period, the Revolutionary period, through the Civil War years and up to the present day. Walk in the footsteps of Washington and Sherman and explore what just may be the Savannah area’s greatest secret. Effingham Chamber of Commerce Business Directory | 2016-2017 • 9

Chamber in Action

As Effingham County continues to grow, the Effingham Chamber of Commerce remains on the forefront of change. The Chamber continues to serve the business community by providing leadership and forward thinking to the people who live and work in Effingham County. The creation of our Leadership Effingham Program is a good example of this kind of leadership and is already beginning to bear fruit. Working alongside our county and cities, projects that have been long talked about — like the creation of the Effingham Parkway — are about to become a reality. Working hand in hand with the Industrial Development Authority, the Chamber has helped begin a series of Effingham-based job fairs. Chamber leadership has helped not-for-profit organizations like the Effingham Community Orchestra to grow and thrive, adding a growing “quality of life” infrastructure to the county’s other offerings. When a new business opens its doors, the Chamber is there to lend support, provide helpful information, help promote them and inform the public. The Chamber has partnered with the City of Rincon in their gateway beautification project along Highway 21. Chamber members serve alongside county volunteers at their Olde Effingham Days event, and

DeWitt Insurance - DeWayne Ladner

When DeWitt Insurance Company was founded in 1956, Edgar A. DeWitt Sr. made customer service and personal attention the cornerstone of his company philosophy. The family tradition continued when Mr. DeWitt’s son, E. Al DeWitt Jr., purchased the company in 1978. After moving the company office to Rincon, DeWitt Insurance continued to build on its reputation of providing knowledgeable, personalized insurance services to its growing family of insureds. After the untimely death of Al DeWitt in April of 1997, Linda DeWitt assumed the helm of the DeWitt Insurance family. C. DeWayne Ladner has carried on that tradition since becoming agency owner and principal 14 • 2016-2017 | Effingham Chamber of Commerce Business Directory

in April of 2002. That same year, DeWitt Insurance also opened a branch office located in Diamondhead, Mississippi. DeWayne’s father, the branch manager, became the owner of the Mississippi agency operations in April of 2006. Just a year later, in April of 2007, the office in Statesboro, Georgia, opened to serve Bulloch County and the surrounding area.

Tourism & Local Attractions For history buffs and nature lovers, there is plenty to see and do in Effingham County. Boaters, kayakers and fishermen can take advantage of two large rivers: the Savannah and the Ogeechee. There are even periodic organized kayak and canoe paddle trips during the

summer through the local riverkeeper organizations. The boat landing at Longbridge, near Springfield, is a scenic spot with massive cypress trunks standing silent sentinel in the waters, and it’s equipped with permanent restroom facilities if you would like to stay for the day. Wildlife is

20 • 2016-2017 | Effingham Chamber of Commerce Business Directory

abundant throughout the area, and it’s fairly common to spot wild turkey, deer, alligators, osprey, eagles and herons. Effingham County also boasts a state-certified “Scenic Byway” that winds its way around the county, giving drivers a glimpse of the beauty that is Effingham.


Chamber in Action

The county also enjoys two history museums, one in Springfield and the other on Ebenezer Road near Rincon. Stroll among the historic buildings, many dating back to the founding of the area in the 1700s. Enjoy looking at the artifacts that span Effingham’s growth from the colonial days up to the present. You can also take a ramble through the historic Ebenezer Cemetery, which was recently re-consecrated following the discovery of more early gravesites. A historic marker commemorates the place where slaves were drowned during the Civil War as they followed Sherman’s troops on their march through the area. The site, now protected, is being studied for possible interpretive trails. The tragedy resulted in a historic proclamation that gave the remaining former slaves 40 acres of land, an act that reverberated throughout the country. The marker sits at the New Ebenezer site where early Salzburgers settled just one year after the founding of Savannah, making Effingham County the second-oldest settlement in the state. This marker is just one of many scattered around the county, commemorating historic sites and moments from the earliest colonization through the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. To meet the growing needs of out-of-town visitors, Effingham County has two hotels, the New Ebenezer Retreat Center and a variety of restaurants to suit any palate. From steaks to seafood, from German to Thai, there is something for everyone. Effingham County has festivals, parades, laser displays, bike rides, hunting, fishing and much, much more.

Hospital Authority

The growth of Effingham Health System is visible in Springfield’s newly renovated Effingham Hospital or through a quick glance at its roster of highly respected — on-staff and visiting — medical providers and specialists. Just as important are changes happening within the Health System, where transformation is a guiding principle. Beginning in 2016, Effingham Health System will no longer follow the regional leaders in health care. Instead, it is forging its own path in the value-based care paradigm — a model that gives patients more control over their own health care. “This transformational journey at Effingham will posture the Health System to be recognized as a leader in healthcare,” explains Fran Baker-Witt, Interim CEO. The evolution of value-based care and pay-for-performance reimbursement models is impacting the delivery of health care and medical practice. Care coordination and evidence-based practices are proven strategies that increase access to care, improve quality outcomes and reduce hospital readmissions and costs. Transformation means “doing things differently, challenging the status quo,” ensuring we exceed our patients’ expectations and experience, setting higher standards by engaging in national initiatives and organizational restructure and redesign, changing culture to align with strategy and growth opportunities.

Brooks | Barry Flonnory | LaMeisha H. Kelly | Robin D. Massey The Hospital Authority meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:15 p.m. in the Kieffer Hall Community Room at Effingham Health System. Hospital Authority meetings are open to the public.

ber of career fields. Programs such as work-based learning and internship opportunities give participating students an edge in our society’s increasingly competitive employment market. Whether a student intends to start their career immediately after graduation or pursue advanced degrees in a postsecondary setting, we are here to ensure each has the support needed to achieve their goals. One of our newest and most exciting initiatives is coming to fruition with the start of this school year: the opening of our new STEM Academy (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The academy, located on our ECCA campus, will provide advanced studies to approximately 500 students in grades 9–12 who are interested in pursuing occupations in the fields of computer science, engineering and health care. These enhanced learning opportunities will give our students a clear advantage as they prepare for their future careers, and our STEM teachers are eager to get these programs underway! The Effingham County School District is proud of the solid educational foundation it provides for its students, but we fully recognize that this goal is only met through collaborative efforts with the families and community we serve. Thank you for your support as we all work together to prepare our children for a prosperous future!

The Effingham County School District has much to be proud of and excited about as we begin the 2016-2017 school year. As one of the districts in the top 15 percent across the state of Georgia, our families can be assured that our students are learning in a safe environment from some of the best and most capable teachers in Georgia’s educational system. Effingham County educators are preparing students daily toward the goal of obtaining a high school diploma, and that fact is reflected in our steadily increasing graduation rates over the past 10 years. Though your child’s educational experience with the Effingham County school system ends with their graduation, we are delighted to recognize and celebrate the many graduating students pursuing post-secondary options such as college and the military service. Our school district embraces a number of programs that support our effort to provide rigorous and relevant instruction to our students. Both Effingham County High School and South Effingham High School provide a number of Advanced Placement classes, which offer students college-level instruction as well as opportunities to earn college credit during their high school career. Students at the Effingham College and Career Academy (ECCA) are successfully completing pathways and achieving certification toward employment across a num-

Recreation Opportunities

In 2014, the Effingham County Board of Commissioners and the Effingham County Recreation Board began to address concerns about recreation facilities in Effingham County. The county currently uses two main recreation facilities: the Highway 119 complex in Springfield and the Sand Hill complex in south Guyton. The Sand Hill facility is currently the newest facility and will remain operational. The remaining current facilities are aging and are spread throughout the county, creating coordination matters for maintenance personnel. Although most families with multiple children participating in sports programs are able to currently choose between two area complexes, parents are still subject to logistical issues. From this, the master plan for a centralized, mega recreation complex was conceived. Final plans for the facility were completed in August of 2015. The park 38 • 2016-2017 | Effingham Chamber of Commerce Business Directory

will be located on Highway 21, approximately 1 mile south of the city of Springfield. The sprawling complex will consume 118 acres and will cost approximately 19.2 million dollars to construct. Current plans for Phase One call for a new gymnasium, a pond, an ADA playground, a walking trail, multiple baseball and softball fields with covered bleachers, batting cages, a concession stand, restrooms, an area for officials and staff plus, and a maintenance building. Construction for Phase One is scheduled to start in late August of 2016 and be completed in October 2017.The site is intended eventually to be an all-inclusive recreation space. Phases Two and Three include multiple football and soccer fields, additional baseball and softball fields with covered bleachers, an RV campground, picnic shelters, park space, a pond, splash pad, skate park and dog park.

Building community, strengthening lives. We are looking for volunteers who would like to work with families one-on- one and who have a heart to serve those in need. We need an office assistant to help with phone calls, assisting families with resumes and job searches, along with the upkeep of the day center. This gives the families another friendly and familiar face they can trust to help them succeed. We are also looking for volunteers to drive our van. A lot of times the families don’t have their own transportation, so making sure they have a consistent way to get around to appointments, jobs, or school is key.

If you need a hand or want to lend a hand you can contact us at 912.519.0567 | www.effinghamfamilypromise.org 9am-5pm Monday through Friday
