Our Birth Place at Phoebe Sumter to celebrate 25 year anniversary

AMERICUS, GA (WTVM) - Our Birth Place, the Labor & Delivery Unit at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, will celebrate its 25th year anniversary with a special event on Tuesday, November 20 at 5:30 pm at the new facility.

Special guests will be some of the young men and women who were born in the unit at the old hospital (then known as Sumter Regional Hospital) in 1987.
