Albany -- Phoebe Putney Hospital board members today approved a new budget they say will make health care available to all, but they did so with no public discussion.

Phoebe officials expect to increase charity and indigent care to almost 55-million dollars. Employees may see a salary increase, an average of 3-point-5 percent. Board members say the new budget will continue to provide people with top quality healthcare."A key piece of that is the expansion of the school nurse program to where Phoebe Putney will now provide at no cost in Dougherty County public schools nurses for the elementary schools. I think there are 17 elementary schools," said Joel Wernick.

The Board may have violated the Open Meetings Act today. They held their entire budget discussion in closed executive session and only met in open session to take their vote.
