George E. Weems Memorial Hospital
You might think that the story of a Critical Access Hospital in rural Florida with a history of eight Chief Executive Officers rotating through in the last 14 years may not end well. For the coastal community where George E. Weems Memorial Hospital sits, David Walker represents an opportunity to create new chapters for an organization that could have easily been written off.
When asked about his connection with his State Office of Rural Health, Walker noted, “We have benefited greatly from working with the Florida Department of Health's Rural Health Office. They have provided technical support to our organization clinically and financially. They are a great asset to our small rural hospital, and the rural health insight has been invaluable to us.”
