 Information from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital-

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB)  The annual Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital Paver Dedication Ceremony brought attention to the names honored through the Phoebe Paver Project, a brick pathway that involves the exterior walkway between the main hospital entrance and the hospital tower.

This area is paved with thousands of bricks, many engraved with someone's name.

The project, in its 20th year, is a way to pay tribute to the birth of a new baby, memorialize loved ones or give thanks to a friend or medical professional.

Donating to the paver project is just one of several ways that the community can help support the hospital through the Phoebe Foundation. The Foundation provides a way for the community to come together through charitable giving to provide life-saving services and technology.

Each spring, a dedication ceremony recognizes those who have added new bricks in the name of someone they wish to honor with a paver brick of their own. This year's ceremony will feature testimonials from people who have donated to the project on behalf of a loved one.
