The Satilla Regional Health & Wellness Center is located behind Satilla Regional Medical Center in Waycross at 2004 Pioneer Street. It is open Monday through Friday, by appointment and with a referral from your physician. Our staff will help you determine how your medical insurance will apply to your treatment.

Anyone facing illness wants to recover as fully as possible. That’s where we come in, as part of the full range of heart care available through Satilla Regional Medical Center. All patients are referred to us by their doctor and face the challenge of heart disease or major lung conditions. After hospitalization or surgery, they are now eager to return to daily living that is as full and active as possible.
