Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital Building New NICU

May 29, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

The new NICU is expected to open sometime in the fall or later.

The Phoebe Trauma & Critical Care Tower is currently under construction on Phoebe’s main campus and will soon be the new home of Phoebe’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The tower will provide southwest Georgia’s most advanced facilities for the delivery of trauma, emergency and intensive care. The first floor will house PPMH’s Emergency & Trauma Center that officially earned state designation as a Level II Trauma Center earlier this year. The third floor will include a new 20-bed adult intensive care unit.

Phoebe’s current NICU is licensed for 27 beds, but as one of six regional perinatal centers in Georgia caring for premature babies born in 22 counties, the NICU team cares for more than 40 babies on an average day. Once the new NICU opens and the current NICU is renovated, Phoebe’s NICU space will increase from 11,000 square feet to 45,000 square feet.

If construction on the Trauma & Critical Care Tower remains on schedule, the new Emergency and Trauma center should open sometime this fall, followed a month later by the NICU then the adult ICU the month after that.
