Albany- Many of you have been helped by community programs at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, whether it's working with teen parents or being watched over by a middle school nurse.

That kind of work earned the hospital the Foster G. McGaw Prize.

The hospital unveiled the national award Thursday.

Four employees chosen through a lottery recently went to Washington to help accept the prize.

"They came from all parts of the hospital, in all different types of services and it was a very special trip for them, many who had never been to Washington D.C. and they were there representing the Phoebe family along with the rest of us," said CEO Joel Wernick.

The hospital also received $100,000. That money will be put back into Phoebe's community outreach programs.
