Last week’s sudden departure of Wellmont president and CEO fueled more community speculation that the board of directors could be closing in on choosing a partner.
So far, Wellmont has remained quiet about who and when it could announce a company to join, but that hasn’t stopped several members of the business community from advocating a merger between Wellmont and Mountain States Health Alliance.
We sat down with one of the men leading that charge, local banker and businessman Bill Greene.
Bill Greene said Wednesday his group does not want to be seen as the adversary. Their goal is to point out some options that may not have been looked at completely in the past.
