Physicians want out of NC MedWest affiliation
The medical community in Jackson and Swain counties has renewed its call to part ways with Haywood Regional Medical Center less than three years after forging an alliance under the MedWest banner. The roots of an uprising took hold in the Jackson County medical community almost a year ago and came to a head in April when several doctors announced they were leaving, citing concerns with the hospital's direction as part of the MedWest trio. Specifically, Jackson doctors feared that Haywood would slowly usurp their own hospital's role. They claim their hospital had lost local control and that its best interests weren't being looked out for by MedWest as a whole.
