Phoebe Putney Hospital Board meets in exec. session for 3 hrs.

Posted: Updated:

Phoebe Putney Hospital's Board of Directors met for three hours in executive session, the same day a brief was due in response to the FTC's complaint challenging the deal to purchase Palmyra Medical Center.

Phoebe Board Members would only say Wednesday's executive session was to consult with legal counsel, pertaining to pending potential litigation, settlement, claims, administrative proceedings or other judicial actions.

When we checked late Wednesday afternoon the paperwork had not been filed, but it can be filed electronically through the end of the day. The FTC filed its complaint last month claiming the buyout would create an illegal health care monopoly.
