Palmyra get turned down again

November 1, 2002

Albany- Palmyra's application to provide obstetric services to patients was denied for a third time. The hearing officer in Atlanta upheld his previous decision that there is no need for more OB services in Albany. Palmyra has wrestled with Phoebe Putney hospital over this for years.

"Are we not getting it because of legitimate reasons or are politics starting to play a part. I'm not that politically savvy, all I do is manage a hospital," says Palmyra Chief Executive Officer Allen Golson.

"Is there a need for additional services of this type? It doesn't just apply to OB, it applies to all sorts of other medical disciplines, and there just is no need," claims Ed Cassidy of the Phoebe Foundation

Palmyra will appeal the decision, but that hearing will probably not take place until after the first of the year.
