ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Federal Trade Commission denied requests by Phoebe Putney and H-C-A Palmyra Hospitals asking to limit the information they must provide in an anti-trust investigation into Phoebe's buyout of Palmyra.

Both hospitals filed petitions asking to quash or limit subpoenas demanding information.

The deadline to provide the information was February 28th.

Phoebe released a statement today saying "The F-T-C has requested a great deal of information in a short time frame that was unreasonable. Both HCA and Phoebe asked for additional time and it was denied."

Phoebe leaders say they will comply with the F-T-C's subpoenas and supply the requested information.

They say they still expect the hospital acquisition to be approved soon.
