On Thursday, we had our second patient who has recovered well enough to be discharged after being intubated and treated in one of our intensive care units. It was so inspiring to see members of the Phoebe Family line the halls to cheer on not only the patient, but each other as well.  It is a truly uplifting and emotional moment,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
