The Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital Finance Committee met to go over their budget.

According to records, this is the fifth year they've gone without raising costs to patients. Several procedures are in place to save more money, such as shortening patient stay. Studies have shown patients recover more quickly the sooner they are released to go home. This not only saves the patient money, but also saves the hospital's expenditures on resources.
