Director of Organizational Development, Phoebe Putney Health System

Website Tyler & Company

Phoebe Putney Health in Albany, Georgia, has retained Tyler & Company for an exciting search for a Director of Organizational Development.

The Organization

The Phoebe Health System originated from a donation of $25,000 in 1910.  Judge Francis Flagg Putney made the generous donation to the Ladies Hospital Aid Society of Albany.  The donation would enable them to build a hospital for the community.  The Judge had a few conditions with his donation.  He wanted the hospital to be a brick building to reduce the risk of fire (the greatest threat to structures at that time).  He asked that the hospital serve all citizens of the community regardless of their race or ability to pay.  Finally, he wanted the hospital named after his mother, Phoebe Putney.

From that generous act began the legacy of Phoebe Health.  Today, Phoebe is the primary provider of healthcare services to the communities of Southwest Georgia.  It has grown to a three hospital, four campus system that includes hospice and home healthcare services.  Phoebe continues to honor its original mission of serving its community with compassionate, quality care.  As a Phoebe team member, you’ll have a unique opportunity to make a difference in lives across the region.
