The Dr. John Warner Hospital will have a new president for the Board of Directors.
The decision has been made by Clinton Mayor Carolyn Peters to not reappoint Randy Workman to the Board, whose term expires at the end of the month. With three other Board positions available currently, Mayor Peters feels as though it is time for a change on the Board.
Mayor Peters has expressed concerns to administration recently about the Rural Health Center's numbers. This is the second term as president for Workman and Mayor Peters feels as though in that time he may have developed some friendships and allegiances that may hinder him in making necessary changes.
With the situation at the Rural Health Center added on to the three vacant positions and potential friendships between the hospital's employees and Workman, Mayor Peters calls this decision the best for the hospital at this time. She adds she has been thinking about this for about a month and a half, but has no replacement in mind as of now.
Mayor Peters explains she has three appointments for the Hospital Board she will make at the Clinton City Council meeting Monday.
CEO of the DJWH Earl Sheehy and Randy Workman were both unavailable for comment.
