ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A special dedication was held Friday at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital honoring the man who helped develop the hospital's cardiovascular program.

Phoebe's Cardiac Cath Lab Family Waiting Room was named in honor of Dr. Thomas D. Johnson. Dr. Johnson also started what became the continuing educational program at Phoebe. Friday, colleagues called him a fire starter.

"In many ways Dr. Johnson, in a different way for me is a fire stater, he saw a need Dr. Charlie is laughing at that, but it's a fire starter, it's identifying a need and then creating something that generates light and heat," said Dr. Doug Patten, Sr. Vice President of Medical Affairs.

Dr. Johnson has served as President of the Georgia heart Association and is a member of its board. He also remains active in many local civic organizations.
