WellStar Health System announced new leadership on the WellStar Board of Trustees.
David Hafner, M.D., partner at Vascular Surgical Associates, PC, assumed the role of chair, succeeding Gary Miller who has served as chair of the Board for the past two years and remains a board member.
“Dr. Hafner is a strong physician and community leader who has served our patients and communities for 30 years,” said Gary Miller, past chair of the WellStar Board of Trustees. “He played an integral role in the recent acquisition of Tenet’s Atlanta-based hospitals and partnership with West Georgia Medical Center by chairing the Physician Advisory Council. He also serves on the WellStar Clinical Partners Board. I have been privileged to serve on the Board with Dr. Hafner for a number of years and look forward to continuing to work with him as we provide continued guidance, leadership and support for our System.”
As a not-for-profit health system, the 20-member WellStar Board of Trustees has created the vision and strategy focused on delivering world-class healthcare. During Miller’s two-year term as chair, WellStar expanded to become the largest health system in Georgia, launched a Graduate Medical Education Program, and opened a new health park in East Cobb County.
