Upson Regional Medical Center announces the addition of Jonathan Busbee, M.D., an internal medicine specialist, as its newest member to the Board of Trustees.
Dr. Busbee has been practicing medicine since 1992 and has been an active member of Upson’s medical staff since 1995. He is a graduate of St. George’s University and completed his residency at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. He is board
certified by the American College of Internal Medicine.
“Dr. Busbee has been a trusted member of our healthcare community for 20 years and well respected by our medical staff for equally as long, “ said Bill Hightower, Chairman of the Upson Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees. “Dr. Busbee’s contributions will be invaluable in advancing quality and growing our services to improve the health of the communities we serve.”
Like all board seats, Dr. Busbee’s term is a one-year position. This new board seat is created specifically for an active member of medical staff, and Dr. Busbee was elected by his peers for nomination to the position. Upson’s Board of Trustees volunteer their time without pay to direct the not-for-profit organization. Board members set policy, create goals, evaluate management’s performance, and ensure the hospital operates in the best interest of the community.
In addition to Dr. Busbee, Upson’s Board of Trustees include Mr. Bill Hightower, Chairman; Mr. Barney Hancock, Mr. Jim Edwards, Vice-Chairman; Mrs. Kay Robinson, Mrs. Kay Searcy, Mr. Scott Blackstock, Mr. Steve Keadle, and Dr. Ralph Warnock, MD.
