Considered to be the heart of the antebellum era, Savannah heralds some of the most beautiful historic districts in the south. Known for their Spanish moss covered oak trees, horse-drawn carriages and manicured parks, this picturesque city is the oldest in the state of Georgia. Savannah hosts millions of visitors every year as they tour through the cobblestone streets and notable historic buildings.
Savannah was originally a British colonial capital of the Province of Georgia and eventually became the first state capital. A strategic seaport, it played a critical role in both the American Revolution and the American Civil War. The Native American Shawnee tribe originally migrated to the river area around the 1680’s, taking over the land from a previous native people, the Westo. One theory for the city and river name is that Savannah it is Native American for “southerners” while others indicate that it refers to the vast marshlands and is derived from the word ‘savanna’ which is a kind of tropical grassland.
Savannah is the fifth-largest city in Georgia and third-largest metropolitan area. The number of parks and greens outweigh almost every area of the country, and they are notable for the Savannah Historic District, Savannah Victoria Historic District and the town has the largest National Historic Landmark District in the U.S. In 1996, the city was host to the sailing competitions held for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
Food, fun and the arts are alive in Savannah as they take pride in some of the most incredible restaurants and culinary delights and have over 150 festivals each year celebrating art, music and culture. This is amplified by the students and graduates of the Savannah College of Art and Design who hold exhibits in the various museums throughout the city.
Beyond the visual delights and traditional southern charm, Savannah is very focused on health and wellness. The city has some of the top hospitals, clinics, private practice and independent medical facilities for the community. These include: Memorial University Medical Center, Landmark Hospital and Georgia Regional Hospital. These medical professional organizations face great challenges as it relates to compliance with medical waste disposal. Their desire to maintain the health of the citizens combined with environmental concerns require that attention be given to this topic.
Medical waste is loosely defined as anything that comes into contact with bodily fluids. The State of Georgia is one of twenty six states that is covered entirely by the federal OSHA guidelines governing that handling and disposal of medical waste. MedPro is proud to be aligned with many of the professional medical institutions as a complete solution for regulated waste disposal, pharmaceutical disposal, full OSHA compliance, employee training and document shredding.
