After 38 years of serving as the CEO of Glen Rose Medical Center, I have presented my retirement notice to the Somervell County Hospital Authority effective Nov. 6, 2011. This was a decision made by me and my family as now is the time for Vickie and I to enjoy time with our four children, their spouses and especially our nine grandchildren.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of serving in this leadership capacity and to have had the opportunity to grow the medical facility and services for the benefit of the citizens of this community. The Hospital Authority Board, entire medical staff and employees and staff of Glen Rose Medical Center hospital and nursing home have truly been committed and the key to the growth and services of Glen Rose Medical Center. I truly appreciate their support over these many years. I have been blessed!
