Brownsworth clarifies mistaken letter

Published: Friday, January 24, 2014 at 01:12 PM.

Ray Brownsworth, CEO of Weems Memorial Hospital, this week issued an apology to the citizens of Franklin County regarding incorrect information that was contained in a recent letter.

Brownsworth’s letter is as follows:

“Recently, you may have received a letter stating that Weems Medical Center East is moving to a new location. This is not true and was sent accidently by our staff selecting the wrong form to use. The notification was only a template in the system and was not about a real move by Weems or any other clinic. We are making the necessary changes to make sure that such an action does not happen again. Please accept my apologies for this error.

“I want you to know that we are proud of our providers, staff and the services provided at both Weems East and Weems West. The clinics will continue to be at their current locations as they provide services to the residents of Franklin County. We continue to move forward in a number of areas as we seek to improve both your experience at the clinic and the quality of care you receive.”

Brownsworth continued on to note that the days of service at the clinics are as follows

  • Weems Medical Center East is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays. On Monday, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the care is provided by Dana Whaley, ARNP; and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, by Dr. Eugene Charbonneau.
  • Weems Medical Center West is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. On Tuesdays and Wednesday, Charbonneau provides care, and on Thursday and Friday Whaley serves as provider.

“Again, we apologize for any confusion and we look forward to continuing to serve you at both Weems Medical Center East and West in their current locations. Should you have additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at 653-8853,” wrote Brownworth.
