MedWest foundation names new director

Steve Brown, the former head of the Haywood County Schools Foundation, has been named the director of foundations for three hospitals under MedWest Health System in Haywood, Jackson and Swain counties.

Brown said he is excited about the opportunity to work on behalf of health care in the region. His father, Dr. Alan Brown, was a prominent and dedicated doctor in the community and founder of Midway Medical Center. He remembers his childhood playing in the unused areas of the old hospital while his dad worked.

With 11 years of experience in all phases and development as executive director, Brown said he is excited about developing a 10-year strategic plan to help MedWest Health System grow.

“This is an opportunity for me to spread the good word about MedWest to people who know and trust me,” Brown said.
