Palmyra unveils phase two of expansion plan

September 13, 2005

Albany-- The second phase of a 15 million dollar expansion to Palmyra Medical Centers is now complete and offering new care to kidney patients.

The medical center unveiled its new and expanded Renal Dialysis Unit. The new center is bigger and has three new treatment rooms with state of the art technology, even personal televisions for patients who can sometimes be in dialysis for up to six hours.

"Oh it's wonderful and the patients absolutely love it. We were in a very small, old area and so they're very excited," says Chief Nursing Officer Anne O'Brien.

There's currently more than 500 dialysis patients in Southwest Georgia.  Dialysis helps to remove waste, salt, and excess water.  It also helps to control blood pressure.

In May, Palmyra opened a new critical care unit.
