"Scotland Health Care System serves our local community as well as the surrounding communities. To be able to come on board and help it continue to grow matches with my skillset. I am very excited about being a System associate and look forward to getting out into the community to help provide community members with the health care services they need. I will also assist in identifying the need for new physicians."

"Paul already knows many of the physicians and midlevel providers in the market since he is from the area. He brings valuable experience from his role with Prestwick Village and his term on the hospital board. He has a great personality and this role fits perfectly for him. Although Paul hasn't done a job exactly like this one, the resources of CPN will be invaluable. I'm thrilled to have him on my team!"
