The Federal Trade Commission is moving ahead with its fight against the merger of Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and Palmyra Medical Center in Albany, reports Georgia Health News. The FTC last week lifted a stay on the case and has directed an administrative law judge to set a new hearing date on the antitrust issues "as soon as is practicable,'' but no later than July 15, GHN reports. GHN adds that the U.S. Supreme Court in February gave the FTC a preliminary victory in its two-year fight against the merger.
