“From the beginning of this public health emergency, we have been committed to providing as much information as possible to our community. While our people remain under immense stress and our resources continue to be taxed, we have been able to meet the incredible demand for care caused by COVID-19,” said Steven Kitchen, MD, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital Chief Medical Officer.

Based on new guidance from the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), Phoebe is now offering tests to its employees who request testing. “The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) continues to recommend that only people with symptoms be tested, but DPH decided to open up testing to healthcare and EMS workers in our area, even if they haven’t had symptoms. We have been following and will continue to follow CDC return-to-work guidelines for healthcare professionals,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
