After Phoebe Sumter Medical Center was destroyed by a tornado, the community of Americus, Georgia was in dire need of a new hospital. GS&P was selected to plan and design the new facility, to be located on a beautiful 40-acre site.

The new 76-bed Phoebe Sumter Medical Center campus features the hospital and three medical office buildings organized using principles of new urbanism around a town square. The resulting "medical village" includes a women's and family health building, a medical/surgical and oncology specialist building, and an education, wellness and orthopedics building complete with physical and occupational rehabilitation and wound care programs.  The campus master plan allows for growth to 250 beds.

GS&P's design strategy for the facility recognized the unique operational patterns for community hospitals of this scale. Department boundaries are minimized to allow the staff to work as a single team maximizing cross-utilization of both staff and resources.
