ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Phoebe launched it's new electronic medical records system, Meditech or ProjectONE, Thursday, October 1st.

"We are dedicated to delivering the best possible care and exceeding the expectations of all we serve. This system-wide approach to streamlined information is another way that Phoebe is delivering on that promise."
