Albany-- Southwest Georgia health leaders host two members of the Georgia Cancer Coalition, in hopes of retaining a Cancer Center of Excellence designation.

Today's site visit at Phoebe Putney Hospital gave Southwest Georgia health leaders a chance to talk about the progress the region is making in developing a cancer center plan. This visit will play a crucial role in deciding if Southwest Georgia will remain in the race.

Russ Toal, Director of the Georgia Cancer Coalition, says "We've been very pleased with what we've seen so far so good, impressed with how Phoebe and Archbold have sat at the table with diverse folks--that's what it takes to develop a successful plan."

Leaders of the cancer center initiative in Southwest Georgia include health professionals, business leaders, and consultants from 38 counties. Eight regions are competing for one of two remaining spots.
