Albany -- Phoebe Putney Health System will pay the extra 500,000 dollars needed to build the new South Albany Health Care complex.

The City of Albany has one-point-nine million dollars in federal flood money to build the health care center at the corner of Newton Road and South Madison Street. But the facility is expected to cost two-point-three million.

 Phoebe Tuesday announced they will make sure the project becomes reality, because of the health care needs in South Albany. Phoebe President and C.E.O. Joel Wernick said "Ultimately resulting in a healthier community. Also will be something that allows folks to have quicker access in a town that often doesn't have as much transportational support as we all would like for it to do."

Phoebe Putney will operate the South Albany health care facility. Part of the nearly 13,000 square foot building will also be used as a community police station.
