“We’re grateful that, for the first time since the COVID-19 crisis began, we have gone three consecutive days without a COVID-19 hospital admission in Albany.  Our overall number of hospitalized patients has remained fairly steady for the last couple of weeks, and we know we will continue to treat COVID-19 patients for the foreseeable future.  That will not prevent us from moving forward with important projects that will benefit patients, expand services and emphasize our dedication to safety and quality.  Today, our new, state-of-the-art Phoebe Simulation and Innovation Center is hosting its first group new nurses.  Our Nursing Simulation and Training Education Program (NSTEP) is a unique program our nursing educators designed to provide hands-on supplemental learning for recent nursing graduates who missed out on some clinical experience because of COVID-19.  Construction on our center continued throughout our COVID-19 response, and it is an example of our commitment to investing in the Phoebe Family and services to improve healthcare in southwest Georgia, even as we continue to meet our region’s COVID-19 healthcare needs,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
