The Professional Affairs Committee at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital met Monday afternoon.

During this meeting they approved addition of 19 medical staff applicants who specialize in critical care and will be working in the advanced ICU.

Doug Patten with Phoebe told FOX 31 it's important that these new hires are approved by the board so they can discuss who these people are, if they are a fit for the job, and to set up a plan to track their success at the hospital.

The committee also approved three other applicants specializing in physiatry, cardiology, and infectious diseases.
