Health system honors doctor

The Southeast Georgia Health System’s leadership and board members recently honored Dr. Eric Andreae for 16 years of service at Coastal Medical Access Project (CMAP) and his significant contributions to patients served.

Andreae moved to Glynn County in 1998 after retiring from his Manhattan private practice and the St. Luke’s Hospital medical staff. In April 2003, Andreae began to serve as a volunteer physician at CMAP, providing medical care to thousands of local residents that could not otherwise afford care. Additionally, he provided leadership to CMAP’s MedBank program that allowed countless patients to receive prescription medication at no cost.
