Leadership change at Stone County Medical Center

MOUNTAIN VIEW, AR (KAIT) - Stone County Medical Center's Chief Operating Officer, Karen Craft, will step down Friday, February 20, to be replaced by Renie Taylor.

"Stone County Medical Center would not be what it is today if not for the guidance of Karen Craft," said Gary L. Bebow, WRHS Administrator/CEO.

Bebow also announced that Renie Taylor will replace Craft as the medical center's Administrator/COO. Born and raised in south Arkansas, Taylor as an Associates and Bachelor's degree, with extensive experience in healthcare management.
