Published on March 05, 2018

Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Braselton has named Kevin Matson, MHA, as its executive director of Operations.

Matson joined NGMC in 2000 and has accumulated a broad range of experience during his 17 years with the organization. Kevin gained strong knowledge in hospital operations in his early years with NGMC, holding positions in housekeeping and inpatient care as a critical care tech in the Ronnie Green Heart Center.  As he furthered his education and experience, he has served in progressive leadership positions involving patient access, safety, occupational medicine, occupational health and employee relations.  Matson started serving as the interim executive director of Operations at NGMC Braselton last fall.

“Since joining us in late September, Kevin has demonstrated his excellent leadership ability by overseeing several key initiatives including our transition to a new electronic medical record, various construction projects and ongoing operations,” said Anthony Williamson, president of NGMC Braselton. “We are excited to have Kevin formally join the leadership team at NGMC Braselton, as he continues to advance within NGHS.”

If you have a fever and cough or difficulty breathing, these steps will help you find the care you need and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region:

  • Call before you come

    Please call your doctor's office or an urgent care clinic for advice about where you should go for treatment.

  • Call 9-1-1 for emergencies

    Calling 9-1-1 is always the fastest and most efficient way to get proper treatment for medical emergencies.

  • Consider staying home and taking advantage of an E-Visit

    When symptoms strike, connect with a provider through an E-Visit instead of traveling to the urgent care or the doctor’s office.

The best way to avoid infection is to avoid exposure. Here are simple steps you can take to lower your risk of catching or spreading illness:

  • Wear a mask – a cloth face cover can protect other people in case you are infected. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Avoid close contact – maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household. If someone in your household is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from them as well.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces to help prevent the spread of germs
  • Monitor your health daily –  Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
