In March 2007, a Category 3 tornado devastated the rural city of Americus, Georgia, destroying Sumter Regional Hospital—the historic town’s only medical facility. With a large number of physicians moving on to other medical centers and some practicing out of trailers, it was clear that the city of Americus desperately needed a new facility.
In response, Phoebe Putney Health System selected Gresham Smith to master plan a brand-new acute care hospital. The end result? A state-of-the-art replacement facility renamed Phoebe Sumter Medical Center that not only meets the specific needs of the community but also attracts top-tier physicians and nurses from larger cities such as Atlanta.
