Another Federal Injunction was issued to stop Phoebe Putney Hospital from buying Palmyra Park Hospital in Albany.

The 11th U-S Circuit Court of Appeals issued the injunction Wednesday afternoon halting the 195 million dollar purchase until the Federal Trade Commission has time to appeal the case.

Last week District Judge Louis Sands of Albany ruled against the FTC's attempt to permanently stop the purchase.

The FTC contends the deal would violate Federal Law by eliminating competition between the two hospitals and drive up the cost of healthcare in the Albany Area.

The FTC has 3 weeks to file its brief in the case.

No hearing date was immediately set.
