Insiders Program

West Georgia Health Foundation Insiders Series

The West Georgia Health Foundation Insiders Series welcomes 20 new participants each year. The program’s goal is to educate community leaders about the excellent medical care available at WellStar West Georgia Medical Center and the advances in healthcare that could affect local families and businesses. Participants attend eight two-hour monthly sessions, tour key departments, meet with physicians, and learn about advanced technologies in use at West Georgia Medical Center.

During their year as WGHF Insiders, participants have the opportunity to visit West Georgia Medical Center’s Surgical Services, Cardiovascular Services, Emergency Department, Wound Care, Outpatient Therapy, Hospice, Home Health, Women’s Health, Occupational Medicine, Vernon Woods Retirement Community, Bariatrics, and Cancer Center.

For more information on the West Georgia Health Foundation Insiders, or to apply for participation in the coming year’s program, please contact Susan Ferguson, director of development of the West Georgia Health Foundation, at (706) 880-7332 or susan.ferguson@wellstar.org.
