Phoebe Putney Grants

August 27, 2002

Grants from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital will pay for 20 new defibrillators to be distributed in 7 Southwest Georgia Counties.

Phoebe's Community Visions grant program will spend 67 thousand 500 dollars to equip fire stations with Automated External Defibrillators like this, and train the firefighters to use them.

The defibrillators help cardiac patients in the case of a heart attack. The grant would put 6 defibrillators in Worth County, 6 in Terrell, 5 in Turner, 3 in Mitchell, 2 in Calhoun, 2 in Baker, and 1 in Randolph County.

Phoebe Senior Vice President Ed Cassity said "We're delighted to have the opportunity to get these out where people need them. Where they are close to where people have access to them, without having to drive a long ways."

Phoebe also pledged 25 thousand dollars to the Albany YMCA, to start exercise programs at Senior Centers in Albany, Camilla, Arlington, and Dawson.
