Albany - Phoebe Putney Hospital is honored for Community Service. Area Agencies on Aging from eight different states recognized Phoebe for community involvement, including the Extra Mile Ramp project.

Phoebe has donated $135,000 from gift shop proceeds to fund wheelchair ramps. "Because we get the money from Phoebe," said Debbie Blanton, "we're able to pay for the lumber to put these ramps in for people who could not afford them otherwise."

Since 1983, the hospital has also donated $17,000 to SOWEGA for fabric and other materials for volunteers to make preemie caps and stuffed animals.
