ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Phoebe Putney Hospital's finance committee approved a new budget Wednesday that includes pay raises and millions in new projects.

The budget puts $24 million into new services, facilities, and technology. Improvements will include bed-side monitors and supply bins for nurses and new patient rooms.

"That increases the satisfaction and the patients' quality of care being that they're with the patients more," said Cardiac Unit Director, Lori Eubanks.

Every Phoebe employee will get a 3.5 percent pay raise. Hospital leaders claim the budget will provide $40 million dollars in community benefit in the coming year, including outreach programs and indigent care.
