SRMC to be designated Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive GYN – COEMIG

JOhnsOn September 13, Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center underwent a site inspection to become a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gyn surgeries (COEMIG).  According to the AAGL, COEMIG designees champion “the most effective diagnostic and therapeutic techniques that are providing less invasive treatments for gynecologic conditions through the integration of clinical practice, research, innovation and dialogue.” When the designation began in 2010, COEMIG was only awarded to surgeons practicing in the United States.  However, in the middle of 2011 the scope of the certification was expanded to include surgeons, hospitals, and ambulatory surgery centers around the world.

In early 2013, Dr. Montgomery Johns brought the idea of becoming COEMIG certified to the Administrative team at SRMC. He believes that minimally invasive GYN procedures are the wave of the future.  After he was appointed director of the COEMIG program, he recruited Dr. Noel Anupol, Dr. Allyson Hilliard, Dr. Brian Josephs, Dr. Rachel McCarter, and Dr. Donna Wicker to join him in his vision to improve the quality and outcomes of SRMC’s surgical GYN patients.  After months of hard work and planning by the interdisciplinary COEMIG team, Spotsylvania Regional became the first COEMIG designee in HCA Capital Division and the 63rd hospital in the world to receive this prestigious certification.
