County pushes on Weems employee benefits

“Keep your focus on those folks and continue your support for the Weems system because that’s what needs to be the center of health care in this community,” Stockwell said. “If we lose this hospital, the health care in this community will suffer. We’re going to lose lots of money and that’s bad business.”

Weems human resource director Ginny Griner outlined why key Weems executives are paid directly by TMH, with which Weems has an affiliation agreement. She said the better benefit package improves recruitment options.

“It doesn’t look right to me,” said Lockley. “Especially when they (Weems employees) are asking for benefits.”

Griner said 63 Weems employees are in the group health insurance plan, and that vision, dental and term life insurance are also offered.
