Phoebe pavers celebrate life

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Patients, community members, and Phoebe Putney retirees will be remembered forever on the hospital grounds.

Sixty-nine new pavers will be added to the walkway that connects the two medical towers. In the last 17 years, the hospital has installed 1,900 pavers to honor patients, employees, and volunteers at the hospital. Among those honored Tuesday 21-retirees who dedicated 498 years of service to Phoebe. They reminded the crowd today that this is a way to celebrate life.

"The Paver ceremony goes beyond today. It's a ceremony that lasts forever. It is a legacy people come here and they see the names on the bricks, they see family members, they see their friends names listed, and its always a reminder and a place to come to reflect," said Thomas Sullivan, Phoebe Foundation Vice President and Executive Director.

Tuesday, white roses passed out at today's ceremony were laid on pavers to remember those who have died. Money from the paver project goes into the Phoebe Foundation to pay for services.
