With the upcoming retirement of David Parks, Vice President of Regional & Specialty Services, NHRMC COO Andre Boyd is restructuring his service lines to promote synergy and improve communication and efficiencies.

“This reorganization aligns these departments logically and strategically as our organization continues to expand its footprint and care for more of our community members in southeastern North Carolina,” Boyd said. “The leaders involved in this transition have dedicated themselves to the mission and vision of NHRMC, and I’m excited to imagine all that they can achieve in the years to come.”
