Lynn County Hospital District is proud to announce our new Chief Executive Officer Dr. Melanie Richburg. Melanie Richburg DNP-FNP-C was selected as successor for LCHD by the board of directors in a unanimous vote at the May board meeting. Dr. Richburg has worked for LCHD as a nurse practitioner since 2005. She is no longer seeing patients in the clinic but has taken on a new role as leader for our organization. Melanie recently told LCHD staff, ”The years I have served as a provider to you and the community have been rewarding and memorable. I look forward to the opportunity to serve us and the communities in another capacity: striving to consistently improve and grow the Lynn County Hospital District’s services and reputation. Thanks for your continued and steadfast dedication to our patients and our communities. The future has never been brighter for LCHD.. with all of us working together.” Dr. Richburg has accepted the new challenge and is ready to forge us into the future.
