Phoebe transfers land for new Senior Center

October 3, 2007

Albany - Phoebe is just weeks away from donating almost an entire block of land to the SOWEGA council on aging to use for a new senior center. Last year, Phoebe Putney purchased the Old Byne Church at the corner of North Jefferson Street and Society Avenue.

CEO Joel Wernick says part of the property will be used to house a new Information center, but for a nominal fee (one dollar), the hospital plans to transfer part of the property to the SOWEGA Council on Aging.

Wernick said, "They certainly have more than outgrown that area as people continue to age in our community. It just seems like a logical community benefit investment."

Debbie Blanton said, "The agency is delighted and the seniors in Dougherty County should be very excited because the plans are to have a state of the art senior center that all participants can come and enjoy and we're just excited, truly."

The land transfer should be complete within the next few weeks.
