Having a hospital in your hometown can be a great opportunity to yours or a loved one’s life.

Locally, Chilton Medical Center has grown with the times and has made several upgrades and changes within their walls to make sure they can offer the residents of Chilton County accurate assistance during an emergency.

One thing that has changed over the past year has been the staffing at the medical center. Almost every leadership position is now under the direction of someone new, including the Emergency Department, which is being led by Director Robyn Cobb.

“We are proud to have Robyn over the department, and we are expecting good things to come from the hospital,” said Debra Richardson, CNO of Chilton Medical Center. “We couldn’t ask for a better staff here at the hospital. Everyone does such a good job.”

The hospital is hoping to take the new changes in authority, equipment and medical advances to a new level of service for the people of Chilton County.

Medical Director Wayne Barefield said, “There are many people around the world that are walking around today because of a hospital like this one. We have all the qualities of a big city hospital but we are here at home, which makes things convenient.”

Cobb said that with the new, advanced standards and the qualifications of the staff, she is looking forward to making Chilton Medical Center a place where people can go and feel safe with the care they receive.
