Birth Certificate Information

A registration of a live birth is made for all babies born at Southern Regional Medical Center. Our Vital Records staff types the birth certificate, which is then downloaded to the State Vital Records office in Atlanta, Ga. A Confirmation of Birth letter will be mailed to parents after the birth certificate is prepared. Copies of the birth certificates may be obtained from the local State Vital Records office.
