Effingham Health System will be celebrating the relocation of its ECB (Effingham-Chatham-Bryan) Occupational Medicine office and the opening of a brand new physician office in the next few weeks.

The first event, scheduled for Friday at noon, will welcome Dr. John Bennett to the Effingham Family Medicine office at Port Wentworth, and open the doors of the new home for ECB Occupational Medicine, a division of EHS dedicated to assisting area business and industry with the health and wellness needs of their employees.

Dr. Bennett is an experienced practitioner of internal medicine, with a particular interest in serving area companies and their employees, and he is the physician leader for ECB Occupational Medicine.

“I am very happy with the hospital’s decision to move ECB Occupational Medicine next door to the Port Wentworth physician practice,” he said. “This location will be a great resource for local industry, providing one-stop shopping for routine needs like pre-hire screenings, drug testing and workman’s compensation evaluations, as well as the physician services needed for treatment and chronic disease management.

“Pairing these services allows me to do what I love. Treating patients and helping people get back to work is rewarding, and I look forward to developing relationships with my patients, as well as our industrial partners.”

An event scheduled for July 1 at 10 a.m. will welcome Dr. Anthony “Tony” Miranda and Dr. Claude “Audie” Sanks to Guyton. Effingham Family Medicine at Guyton will be located next door to Medicap Pharmacy on Hidden Creek Drive.

“We are very excited that Effingham Health System chose Guyton for their new physician practice,” said Amy Jacobs, owner of Medicap Pharmacy. “Area residents like convenience, and Guyton will have more to offer than ever before. These two doctors are a great asset to our community, and I look forward to working with them to serve our residents’ health care needs.”

Effingham Health System also will welcome Dr. Xiaofeng “Frank” Zhong to Effingham Family Medicine at Goshen on July 8. EHS will host a reception at the physician office from 1-3 p.m., and the public is cordially invited to attend.

“We have been very deliberate in choosing Dr. Zhong for the Goshen location,” said Norma Jean Morgan, CEO at Effingham Health System. “Dr. Zhong comes to us from China, though he received his medical training in the U.S. We’re making good on our promise to offer ‘world-class’ medicine, and we are confident that Dr. Zhong will be welcomed and well received.”
