RCH Board of Directors to hold another special-called meeting

Following a string of special-called meetings in recent days, including a more than three-hour meeting earlier this week, the Russell County Hospital Board of Directors will again have a special-called meeting on Friday, March 18th at 4 p.m. in the Duo Broadband boardroom in Jamestown.

On the agenda is an executive session to discuss “personnel issues” as has been the case the last several meetings.

The hospital currently has a CEO opening following the “mutually agreed” parting of ways with former CEO Patrick Branco last week.

In a release from the hospital, Branco said he was entering retirement while board chairman Neal Dalton thanked Branco for his service the past several years as the local healthcare facility navigated the COVID-19 pandemic.
