"Today, we opened a new intensive care unit on our Phoebe North campus, and we plan to open two general COVID-19 units in that hospital later this week. The news has been encouraging in Albany over the last week, but we must guard against a second wave of infections, and we know COVID cases remain on the uptick in some other communities. We are committed to marshalling all available resources to ensure we serve the entire southwest Georgia region by providing the best possible care to as many patients as possible.”
