At the beginning of a new year, some look forward to what’s coming, and others spend time catching their breath and reflecting on what has been. Both are important in making sure the upcoming year is a good one. We all want bigger and better successes and fewer missteps.
The same holds true for Greene County Medical Center. A review of what happened in 2016 can help set the stage for what is to come in 2017.
Here’s a short summary of major events from the past year that will
impact our successes in the coming year:

successfully closed at over 100% of our goal, raising a total of $4,113,249 for
the major expansion and renovation project.
Welcomed a Podiatrist
the beginning of the year, the medical center welcomed podiatrist Dr. TimothyHolcomb to the West Central Orthopedics clinic.
He joins orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Wahl, and together they offer
comprehensive orthopedic, foot and ankle care.
Rolled Out New Mission & Values
100 employees volunteered to participate in a survey and/or a focus group to
define what role the medical center should – and does – play in the larger
community. With that valuable feedback,
the medical center established new mission and values statements.
To enrich our community by providing quality, compassionate care to every
patient and contributing to the well-being of every family.
