Pediatrician Now Practicing at Effingham Family Medicine
Effingham Health System is putting major emphasis on transforming healthcare for children in our community by adding our first, on-staff pediatrician. As part of that commitment, we now have a full time pediatrician on staff—Bailey Alford, M.D. Dr. Alford will see patients at Effingham Family Medicine, Springfield and Guyton locations.
About Dr. Alford
Dr. Bailey Alford completed a three-year pediatric residency with Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah. Prior to that she received her Doctorate of Medicine from Mercer University School of Medicine. She also holds a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, with a Chemistry minor, from Mercer University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with University Honors. Dr. Alford has worked with community programs, including Parent University and Early Learning College in Savannah, where she served as an instructor.
This is a “coming home” for Dr. Alford, who grew up in Guyton. “I grew up in Effingham.” says Dr. Alford. “The opportunity to work with Effingham Health System to provide medical care for the next generation of children in my own home town is as good as it gets!”
Transforming Healthcare for Our Children
As part of our commitment to transform healthcare for local children, Effingham Health System is also partnering with Effingham County Board of Education for a telemedicine pilot program—Effingham Health TELEMED—in Guyton Elementary and Springfield Elementary this fall.
