Weems Board Changes Name of Scholarship in Honor of Former Board Member

The Weems Hospital Governing Board recently approved changing the name of the Weems HealthCare Scholarship to the Doug Creamer Healthcare Scholarship in honor of Doug Creamer, the long-standing member of Weems Hospital Governing Board who died earlier this year.

“Doug Creamer was an avid supporter of healthcare in Franklin County and a champion for access to care,” said Weems CEO David Walker. “He served faithfully on the Weems Governing Board and most recently as Chairman. Doug cared about our staff and patients who received care through our hospital’s healthcare system.”

The George E. Weems Memorial Hospital scholarship is awarded annually to a high school student who is interested in seeking a career in healthcare. The scholarship amount is $1,000. Graduating seniors interested applying for the scholarship, please contact Courtney Alford and Amanda Byrd at (850) 653-8853 ext. 108.
