Dorminy Medical Center is transitioning to new management from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital to ER Hospital LLC.
John Croley, attorney for the Housing Authority of Ben Hill County said, "Phoebe was unwilling or uncapable of managing Dorminy Medical Center." As a result the center has decided to go with new management, ER hospital LLC, and file a multiple count lawsuit against Phoebe for not upholding their management.
According to Croley, during this litigation, Dorminy is in temporary agreement and letter of intent with ER Hospital LLC. The transition is projected to take 60 to 90 days to finalize the management agreement.
Croley says the expected date for the full transition is June 1st however the Medical Center is currently dealing with transitioning their workers from Phoebe to ER hospital.
Croley adds they look forward to building a great relationship with ER hospital and to bring better service to their community.
