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

  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 55
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Sumter Medical Center – 18
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Worth Medical Center – 4
  • Total Inpatients Recovered – 658
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 131
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Sumter – 34

“When we confirmed our first COVID-19 case at Phoebe in early March, we could not have imagined we would become an early epicenter for the virus and that – more than five months later – we would still be caring for dozens of COVID-19 patients throughout our health system daily.  May 20 was the last time Phoebe Sumter had more COVID-19 inpatients than they do today, and April 2 is the last day on which Phoebe Worth exceeded their current number.  But the Phoebe Family is not wavering in our response to COVID-19 nor our commitment to providing the care our communities need.  Our Employee Safety Committee is hard at work developing innovative ways to help our staff stay healthy and safe while providing safe and compassionate care to all our patients.  I remain proud to be part of the Phoebe Family, and I am exceedingly grateful for each employee’s perseverance, determination and dedication to our patients as we continue our COVID-19 fight,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System President & Chief Executive Officer.
