Gilman to head Cuthbert hospital

CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) - Kim S. Gilman, RN has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) for Southwest Georgia Regional Medical Center (SGRMC), a 25-bed critical access hospital managed by Phoebe Putney in Cuthbert. She will still head Phoebe Worth Medical Center, a 25-bed critical access hospital in Sylvester.

“With over 20 years of healthcare experience, Kim has demonstrated her ability to improve and maintain employee and patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, patient safety, team building and operational efficiencies,” said Phoebe Chief Joel Wernick. “With this enhanced oversight, Kim will now have the opportunity to focus on further collaboration and efficiencies between the two facilities.”

In 1999, Southwest Georgia Regional Medical Center was the first hospital in Georgia to receive critical access designation, ensuring vital services are available locally for residents of Randolph County.

 With oversight by the Randolph County Hospital Authority, SGRMC is a non-profit, county-owned facility managed by Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.
