Progress continues on health centers in Americus

AMERICUS, GA – The three medical office buildings at the new Phoebe Sumter Medical Plaza continues to take shape.

Progress on the Women and Family Health Center continues, and the Oncology & Surgery Center is beginning to take shape.

In the coming weeks the construction crew will begin on the Wellness & Education Center and then of course the brand new state-of-the art hospital.

The three medical office buildings are expected to be up and running by the end of this year. Of those, one will house obstetrics, gynecology, pediatrics and family practice while another will house oncology and general surgeons, and the third, orthopedics, wellness, fitness and education.

A brand-new, state of the art new hospital is expected to be up and operation by the end of 2011.

The new Phoebe Sumter Medical Center will be four stories and feature 76 beds, and according to CEO Keith Petersen, it will be "the finest small hospital in America."

While the new four-story, 76-bed state of the art medical facility is under construction, the existing medical center on Forsyth Street continues to provide medical services.
