Construction of South Albany Health Care Center underway

September 9, 2004

Albany -- City leaders broke ground for the South Albany Health Care Center Thursday morning, but construction is already underway.

 The foundation of the combination Health Care Center and Community Policing Headquarters is nearly complete.

 The $2.8 million health center is being built at the intersection of Newton Road, Cedar Avenue, and Madison Avenue. The last two million dollars of Albany's flood recovery funds are being used to build the center, while Phoebe Putney Hospital added a half million dollars.

Albany Mayor Dr. Willie Adams said "Located in an area where people can have immediate access to health care and not have to travel across town and go to the emergency room. "

 Phoebe Putney Health Systems C.E.O. Joel Wernick said "Between 8 to 10 thousand people will use this facility on an annual basis, many of whom used to rely upon our emergency room for primary care."

The South Albany Health Care Center is expected to open in February. It will be open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day.
