We have not approached that number since, but we continue to see a significant number of additional patients every day, and many of them are critically ill when they arrive at our emergency centers. The COVID-19 public health crisis is not going away anytime soon in southwest Georgia, and we know we must be prepared to care for COVID-19 patients for months to come,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System Chief Executive Officer.
