Board of Trustees

Working Together to Improve the Health of Our Community

The WellStar West Georgia Medical Center Board of Trustees is comprised of 11 volunteers who meet monthly to provide guidance and offer insight for WellStar West Georgia Medical Center and its various divisions.

The Board of Trustees meets every third Monday of the month at 5:15 p.m. in the WellStar WGMC Board Room.

The LaGrange-Troup County Hospital Authority will meet at 4 p.m. on Monday, September 17, in the Board Room at WellStar West Georgia Medical Center. The purpose of the meeting is to provide an annual update on the Authority Pension Plan.


The members, who serve three-year rotating terms, are appointed by seven entities — WellStar Health System, the city of LaGrange, Troup County, Callaway Foundation Inc., a joint nominee of the Fuller E. Callaway Foundation and the Ida Cason Callaway Foundation, and the Troup County Medical Society.

A member may serve two consecutive three-year terms before rotating off the board for at least one year.
