Our people tell our story…
”I recently needed Weems hospital for a life threatening heart attack. Weems took great care in stabilizing me for transport to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (TMH) where I was told by ER doctors in TMH that the great care I received at Weems is what saved my life… I feel comfortable living here in this small community with a heart condition, knowing Weems is here to help me if I need it.” Professional service in a local caring environment.
