Rev. McKnight, who was vice chairman of Georgetown Memorial Hospital’s Board of Trustees at the time of his resignation, also was a member of the GHS Planning Committee during his tenure which spanned more than three decades.

“During the last 30 years, Wallace McKnight has helped make many decisions affecting the kinds of healthcare services available to our community today,” said Charles A. Moore, GHS Board of Trustees chairman. “His strong commitment to our community and to local healthcare is impressive. Georgetown Hospital System’s entire Board of Trustees is most grateful for his dedication and service to our community as well as to Georgetown Hospital System,” Moore added.

“Our board members serve tirelessly and willingly, and without pay. They are each leaders in their communities and, like Rev. McKnight, bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table as decisions about local healthcare needs are made,” said Bruce P. Bailey, GHS President and CEO.
