THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – Archbold Medical Center had a regional economic impact of more than $630 million dollars in 2007.

The impact includes the creation or sustainment of nearly five thousand full-time jobs. Much of the economic impact Archbold and its many affiliate hospitals and clinics produce is reinvested into medical services they provide.

"That's one of the core values of Archbold," says President and CEO of Archbold Memorial Hospital and Medical Center Perry Mustian. 

"We're looking at more than just things like what our direct impact is from salary benefits. We're looking at what we provide the community. Health screenings and community health benefits. The things we do here to try and improve the community health status of not just Thomasville, but the greater Southwest region that we serve as well."

The next step for Archbold is finishing construction on a brand new oncology center in Thomasville which is slated to open this year.
