Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital's Professional Affairs Committee met on Monday afternoon for their monthly regular session.
The committee's duty is to review all applicants for the medical staff, which employs more than 300 people, and recommend those who are fit to the full Hospital Authority Board during their meetings later in the month.
Dr. Doug Patten says these meetings serve as a way to ensure they're fully looking at every applicant to the best of their abilities.
During the meeting, the committee went into executive session to discuss their findings and will now present them to the full board during their next meeting.
