Erlanger officials announced today that Stephanie Boynton, currently CEO of Erlanger Bledsoe Hospital and Sequatchie Valley, will also assume the role of CEO of Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital (EWCH). Ms. Boynton previously served as Interim CEO of EWCH following Erlanger’s acquisition of Murphy Medical Center in 2018, and has been with the Erlanger Health System for the past 19 years.
In this new role, Ms. Boynton will be overseeing Erlanger’s critical access hospitals, with leadership responsibilities for EWCH, in addition to Erlanger Bledsoe Hospital and Sequatchie Valley. “We will continue to recruit new physicians to this area, and work closely with employees and the current medical staff to provide much-needed services to this community, Ms. Boynton said. “As with our healthcare facilities in Bledsoe and Sequatchie Counties, it is important to those living in this area that they can be treated within their community, remaining close to their homes, families, friends and support groups,” she added.
Matt Thomas will continue to serve as Chief Financial Officer and Teresa Bowleg as Chief Nursing Officer at Erlanger’s North Carolina-based hospital.
