ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital unveiled their newest addition to the public Sunday.

Medical Center Two, a $46 million addition was unveiled during an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony.

Nearly half of the 165,000 sq. ft. building is dedicated to Hematology and Oncology.

Hospital leaders say this building represents the last component of a 20-year development plan.

"We have outgrown four different facilities over the past 20 years, and before this location we had patients spread in three different locations, what this new facility does is put them on two coordinated floors that are specifically designed," Joel Wernick, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital CEO.

The bridge stretches over 2nd Avenue and connects to Tower II to a parking deck which allows easier access to the new facility.

It'll be operational within a week.
