Pam Stewart has been named as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Washington County Regional Medical Center (WCRMC).
“I am excited to announce Pam Stewart as the new CEO of WCRMC,” said Kerry Trapnell, Chief Administrative Officer of Aletheia Health Partners, the management company for the hospital. “Pam brings a wealth of knowledge to this role. Her passion and commitment to the hospital’s success and her hometown community is unmatched.”
Stewart is a native of Sandersville. She is a 1990 graduate of the Brenau Women’s College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing and a 2006 graduate of Auburn University with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
Pam Stewart began her nursing career in Augusta before coming home to Sandersville as a Registered Nurse in 1992. During her initial twenty-year tenure at WCRMC, she held numerous positions within the hospital, including Chief Nursing Officer (CNO).
In 2012, Stewart pursued an opportunity with The Joint Commission, an accrediting organization for hospitals, prior to returning this year to serve as WCRMC Interim CNO.
“When you speak with Pam about the importance of quality healthcare in rural communities, it is quite evident that she is devoted to our hospital,” said Trapnell. “While she has been associated with WCRMC for more than twenty years, Pam’s affiliation with the hospital began long before her nursing career. Her mother, Connie Leverett, served as the Food Service Manager and Dietitian at WCRMC and through her volunteer work as a Candy Striper in junior high, she quite literally grew up in this hospital.”
Pam Stewart and her husband, Trey, have resided in Sandersville for thirty years. They have two adult daughters, Anna Katherine Bonifay and Sarah Deal. Anna Katherine is a third generation WCRMC employee, working as a Speech-Language Pathologist.
