“She does a great job,” he said. “We don’t want to lose her.”

Brownsworth said he is looking for a practitioner to replace Hardin, as she continues to look into how to earn the necessary credits or secure a waiver from Medicare.

Beginning this week, duties at Weems West are being divided up between Dana Whaley ARNP, and Dr. Eugene Charbonneau. Hours are Tuesday through Friday, from 8 to 5 p.m.

He said Whaley and Charbonneau have been seeing about 20 to 25 patients per day at Weems East in Carrabelle, while Weems West has only been attracting about eight to 10 patients per day. He said he expects the clinic’s volume in Apalachicola to rise once renovation is fully complete on Miniat’s former offices.
