MACON, GA (DAY, DATE) – Peach Regional Medical Center (PRMC) recently announced the fiscal impact of the construction of its new facility at 1960 Highway 247 Connector in Byron. The project will generate an estimated $3.8 million for the local economy, according to a report recently released by the Middle Georgia Regional Commission.

“The report shows that Peach Regional Medical Center's expansion will have an enormous positive impact on our local economy, which makes us very proud,” said Nancy Peed, CEO of PRMC. “We thank the residents of Peach County for their unwavering support, and will continue to work hard to ensure that the citizens of this community have access to high-quality, affordable healthcare services.”

The residents of Peach and surrounding counties will have access to the new, modern, 25-bed hospital complete with a larger emergency center and an operating room suite, expanded outpatient services and all-private rooms. This new facility will be operated through a partnership with PRMC and Central Georgia Health System.

The new facility will be 68,000 square feet, roughly 15,000 square feet larger than the current Peach Regional Medical Center facility located at 601 Blue Bird Blvd. in Fort Valley. Construction began in May, with completion set for the summer of 2013.
