People Have Choice in Hospital Photography Contest

Votes Requested to Furnish New Peach County Hospital 

MACON, GA (Wednesday, February 6, 2013) – This past October, Peach Regional Medical Center (PRMC) and Central Georgia Health System (CGHS) called on local photographers to put the finishing touch on the new, state-of-the-art PRMC facility.

A photography contest to furnish the new hospital was held during the month of October, and staff at PRMC received more than 1,700 submissions. From the submissions, 235 photos have been chosen for display at the new hospital. Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places, as well as for a People's Choice Award.

Now, during the month of February, PRMC asks the public to choose the photo that will win the People's Choice Award. Twenty-three photos are available to view at The community is encouraged to vote for their favorite photo before February 28, 2013. While all 23 photos will be displayed in PRMC's new facility, the People's Choice Award winner will receive a cash prize.

“This contest is a wonderful opportunity for local photographers to showcase their work while making a lasting contribution to Peach County's new hospital. The People's Choice Award allows us to include our community in the development of our new hospital ,” said Nancy Peed, Chief Executive Officer of PRMC.

Each of the images chosen for the new hospital evoke a sense of comfort and peace for patients and their families, and include wildlife, local landscapes and natural elements, and familiar local architecture. The four prize winners will be announced in a ceremony later this year when the new facility opens its doors.

The new PRMC facility, which will be renamed The Medical Center of Peach County when it becomes operational later this year, is located at 1960 Highway 247 Connector in Byron. The new 25-bed hospital is complete with a larger emergency center and an operating room suite, expanded outpatient services and all-private rooms. The new facility will be operated through a partnership with PRMC and CGHS.
