TRHS welcomes new board members
Tift Regional Health System, Inc. welcomes three new board members (pictured left-to-right): Judge Chase Daughtrey, Dr. James Scott and Dr. Scott Fulp.
Daughtrey was sworn-in as Probate Court Judge of Cook County, Georgia in January 2009. Elected at the age of 26, Daughtrey was the youngest Probate Court Judge in the State of Georgia.  He has a long history of appointments from several governors and U.S. senators from the state of Georgia.  He is a native of Cook County. 
“Judge Daughtrey is well positioned to represent his community as part of the TRHS board,” said Chris Dorman, TRHS President/CEO.
Scott Fulp, DMD, is a Tifton native.  He and his wife Nicole are a husband-and-wife dentist team at Fulp Family Dentistry, which they started in 2009.  He received his undergraduate degree in biology and psychology from the University of Georgia and graduated from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine.  Dr. Fulp also serves on the Ameris Bank board of directors.
Orthopedic surgeon James Scott, MD, practices at Georgia Sports Medicine in Tifton, which was acquired by Tift Regional in 2015. Dr. Scott is the past president of the Georgia Society of Ambulatory Surgery Centers and continues to serve on their board. He earned his medical degree from Augusta-based Medical College of Georgia. Following medical school, Dr. Scott underwent his residency at Tulane University in New Orleans.
“The support we receive from our board members, comprised of community leaders and medical staff, is unmatched,” said Dorman.  “Our decades of success is directly linked to their leadership and commitment to the communities we serve.”
John Brownlee, the TRHS Chairman said:  “The new board membership ensures we maintain the consistency of our mission, while opening up new growth opportunities.  We are well positioned to be the best health system for receiving and delivering care.”
