Phoebe North Surgical Center to close

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Less than one month after Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital reached a settlement with the federal government, future plans for the Phoebe North campus were announced Wednesday.

Administrators said in a release that they will begin moving surgical cases, equipment, and supplies on the North campus to the main campus.

The hospital said it would work closely with the employees impacted by the consolidation, and said some staff relocation would be part of the transition.

Phoebe Putney sent this news release Wednesday:

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital began today taking steps toward best use of its north campus facility, focusing on delivering the most efficient, effective, high quality care.
