The board of trustees voted unanimously to hire Jimmy Rigsby as administrator of Campbellton-Graceville Hospital. He’s a former Jackson County health department administrator.
Rigsby will take over his new post Aug. 1.
The hospital has been facing financial problems in recent months and is struggling to meet their August payroll.
The hospital's board of directors is hoping that reimbursements from Medicare will pull the hospital out of its current financial crisis.
The federal agency reportedly owes the hospital about $312,000.
