“We continue to be overwhelmed by incredible community support.  Individuals and organizations are donating meals to our staff every day and putting out ‘healthcare heroes’ yard signs all over town.  A local company put up a huge banner on the skybridge at our main hospital thanking the Phoebe Family for their service to our community, and we’re being flooded with cards and emails sharing messages of encouragement.  I want everyone to know how much we appreciate all of those gestures.  We truly feel that positive energy and support, and it is sustaining and motivating our team to continue this fight,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
