“This week, we are entering our fourth month dealing with COVID-19.  While our number of hospitalized patients continues to decrease, we know the virus will likely remain a part of our daily life for some time to come.  Since the Albany area was an early coronavirus hotspot, there was no playbook for us to follow.  The Phoebe Family had to forge our own path.  Our team members responded with determination and ingenuity, becoming experts on treating COVID-19 patients, procuring necessary supplies during a time of extreme supply chain disruption and finding new and unique ways to provide the quality, compassionate care our patients need and deserve.  We will continue to evolve to effectively meet the healthcare needs of our community as we enter each new phase of our COVID-19 response, always focusing on the safety of our patients, staff and community” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
