News release from  Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital has filed a formal notice that it will ask the Georgia Supreme Court to review the decision made last week by the Georgia Court of Appeals.

We believe the rulings of Superior Court Judges Stephen Goss in Dougherty County and George Peagler in Sumter County were correctly decided on the law.

We are disappointed in the decision by the Court of Appeals to overturn those rulings, which denied Palmyra Medical Center a certificate of need to provide basic perinatal services.

Phoebe's position remains that there is no need for a second OB program in our community.

Phoebe has reinvested significant resources to provide mothers and babies with the highest levels of safety, including a neonatal intensive care unit, and a second program would compromise quality and safety.
