Another Georgia hospital added to federal suit

July 22, 2004

Albany- Another Georgia hospital has been added to a federal lawsuit that includes Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

A hospital in Gainsville brings the total to seven.

Phoebe is one of about 340 hospitals across the nation named as defendants in lawsuits charging the non-profit organizations with overcharging uninsured patients. Georgia has more hospitals named than any other state involved in the suits.

Phoebe attorney Rick Langley has said that the claims are false and the hospital is only being targeted for money.
