Construction of the The Medical Center of Peach County started in May of last year and lasted 13 months.
The $30-million building located off the highway 247 connector in Byron is equipped with the latest technology.
Kenneth Paz was the last in-patient from Peach Regional and the first at The Medical Center.
Thomas, his son, was there for the move.
"I followed him when he moved from The Medical center from Macon to Peach Regional. It's only fitting to come with him on this trip, too," he says.
Peach Regional Medical Center has been in business for more than 60 years.
