ACV Health Services Staffing Update

Are you gearing up for those New Year resolutions, goals, or health transitions? You might find yourself looking for a primary physician to receive routine care.

Copeland Medical Center (CMC) has a few new faces that complete a team of providers, along with a familiar face, ACV Vice President for Health Services, Keri Hilliard. Keri’s office is now at CMC, as she transitions from the Nursing Home Administrator role and focuses on serving more as a hands-on director of CMC with leadership responsibilities for ACV’s health services as a whole.
