Phoebe Putney Hospital construction

April 25, 2003

Albany -- Construction on the Ninth floor at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital is progressing on schedule. The 3 and a half million dollar project will add 22 new patient rooms.

The ninth floor used to house their education facilities and meeting rooms. Those have been moved to the old Albany Middle School.

The heating and air conditioning has been moved onto the roof, which has been strengthened. New wider windows are being installed. All the rooms will be for single patients, as Phoebe takes the first step of their goal of having 90 percent private rooms.

Marketing Director Jackie Ryan says this is the first step toward meeting that goal, which is what their patients want.

Phoebe will still have 450 beds when the addition is completed, but more will be private rooms. The construction is scheduled to be completed September 5th.
