“At Phoebe, we are on day 147 of our battle with COVID-19.  It has taken amazing strength, stamina and teamwork to get this far, and unfortunately, the fight is far from over.  In June, we admitted 47 COVID-19 patients to our hospitals in Albany.  In July, that number jumped to 176, and over the last week we have had COVID-19 patients in all of our hospitals for the first time in about three months.  We appreciate the encouragement our community continues to give the Phoebe Family, but the best way to support our healthcare heroes is to do all you can to prevent the spread of the virus.  We’ve all grown weary of COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, but we must continue to follow them.  We will not have a healthy economy again until we have a healthy community, and we cannot have a healthy community if people are unwilling to wear masks, avoid crowds and practice proper hand hygiene.  Following those recommendations will not only help bring relief to our tireless healthcare workers, but it will help keep you and your family safe,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
