Palmyra Medical Center appeals lawsuit dismissal

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Palmyra Medical Center is continuing a legal battle against Phoebe Putney hospital seeking to break what it calls Phoebe's "monopolies."

Palmyra will appeal a federal court ruling that threw out its anti-trust lawsuit against Phoebe.

Palmyra C-E-O Mark Rader says they're appealing because the community won't have true healthcare choice until there is fair competition.

In January, the state granted Palmyra approval to provide obstetric services, and Phoebe appealed that decision.

We contacted Phoebe officials about the appeal, but they did not make an immediate response.
