“When I was looking for a good opportunity, I searched for a few particular things,” Dr. Wilson said. “The most important parts to me were seeing physicians in real positions of leadership as well as a level of trust between the physicians and hospital administrators. What I found here was that and much more. The people of West Point seem invested in the hospital, and the hospital seems to be invested in the people of West Point. That’s where great medicine begins.”
Dr. Wilson said the community seems very warm and welcoming. “We are very much looking forward to our move,” he said.
