Phoebe-Sumter Women's Center takes shape

Press Release

AMERICUS, GA - Steel beams rising in the sky can now be seen at the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center construction site as the new Women's and Family Health Center begins to take shape.

Also, the foundation for the new Oncology & Surgery Center is also coming into form, with cement being poured over the next few days. 

Plans to repeat the same work on the third and final support building, Wellness and Education Center, are also being implemented as well.  Finally, work on the new Phoebe Sumter Medical Center facility is expected to go full throttle sometime in early May.

Phoebe Sumter's 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.
