Following a devastating tornado, Georgia community welcomes its new hospital

February 07, 2012 |

The new Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Ga., designed by Gresham Smith & Partners, is now open. A long-awaited addition to a community still recovering from a devastating 2007 tornado, the hospital brings much-needed medical attention to an area that not long ago performed medical services out of tents donated by FEMA and GEMA. The New Replacement Hospital Campus is located on a 282-acre site with three specialty clinic buildings totaling 52,000 sf. A 76-bed hospital encompasses 183,000 sf and features private rooms with new equipment and technology. Building Team members include KLMK Group and construction manager Brasfield & Gorrie.
