Albany, Ga. – As of noon Thursday, these were Phoebe’s COVID-19 numbers:

  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 31
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Sumter Medical Center – 2
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Worth Medical Center – 0
  • Total Inpatients Recovered – 417
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 104
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Sumter – 30

“This week, we passed our 100th day in our fight against COVID-19. While we certainly wish day 100 would have been our last, the Phoebe Family continues to work tirelessly to treat COVID-19 patients, while also safely and compassionately caring for the rapidly growing number of non-COVID patients seeking treatment at our hospitals and clinics. We want to stress to the people of southwest Georgia that coronavirus transmission continues in our communities, though, thankfully, at a much lower rate than earlier in the crisis. Since Sunday, we have admitted four new COVID-19 patients and discharged nine from our Albany hospital campuses. Our number of hospitalized patients is slowly declining, and we hope we will soon dip below a total of 30 for the first time since this public health emergency began,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
