AMERICUS, GA (WTVM) – Construction crews have begun work on the new hospital and support building at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, GA.

Officials tell us the new hospital is slated to open the end of 2011. The address of the new medical village is 126 Highway 280. It will feature a four-story, 76-bed hospital, with three free-standing medical office buildings that will house oncology, surgery, women and children's services, wellness and orthopedics.

The 40-acre site will also feature a running/walking track.

In March, the hospital will also receive the free MRI that it earned from a Siemens contest in 2007.

In addition, Phoebe Health System has recently adopted a new dress code. It believes the new dress code will allow patients to readily identify nurses and other hospital personnel.
