Phoebe Sumter Medical Center will host a ribbon cutting and open house for its new facility. The new hospital will open almost five years after a F3 tornado destroyed the community hospital on March 1, 2007. During the time of the event, then President George W. Bush visited the disaster site and called it “total devastation.” The hospital has been on the road to recovery since that time.
