Albany -- The Medical staff at Phoebe Putney Hospital donated computers to an Albany service organization to celebrate National Doctor's Day.

 Hospital Chief of Staff Dr. Hasan Rizvi  surprised Girl's Inc. Director Lakisha Bryant Tuesday afternoon with five thousand dollars worth of computer equipment. The Doctors say that instead of the hospital giving them gifts, they would rather give a gift to an organization that helps the community.

Girl's Inc. Said most of their computers are not working, and they will help the education of the girl's they service. Girl's Inc. Executive Director Lakisha Bryant said "so we will further impact them with their academic enrichment, as well as help them with their life skills areas. Dealing with everything from AIDS  prevention to economic literacy."

Doctor Rivzi said the Phoebe Medical Staff hopes to make these gifts to the community an annual part of Doctor's Day.
