Hospital Authority establish budget

February 21, 2007

Albany -- The Phoebe Putney Hospital Authority board is becoming more independent from the hospital itself by developing its own budget.

The Hospital Authority decided last month to establish their own budget, to make sure their board is not influenced by the Hospital administration. In the past, the authority would bill hospital administrators for whatever money they needed.

Some Authority members worried that could influence their oversight duties over administrators.

Ralph Rosenberg has been named the Chairman of the Authority's Budget Committee, which is now drawing up their needs. He said they should have the proposed budget ready by the Authority's next meeting May Tenth.
