About Southland MD
Southland is a physician-owned and operated group that provides Emergency Medicine, Hospitalist and Outpatient Care to hospitals and health centers. Southland was developed to bring high quality medical services back to hospitals and communities that were being run by large, distant staffing companies in which there was no consistency in physician quality or care. Southland is striving to bring back the idea of the small town family doctor with the added bonuses of the training and experience of some of the area’s best medical practitioners. With an emphasis on quality, efficiency and patient satisfaction, Southland physicians are now treating patients throughout South Georgia and North Florida. With a core group of over 200 physicians and mid-level practitioners, Southland works with hospitals and healthcare centers every day, streamlining throughput times and improving customer satisfaction.
