ATLANTA, GA - GaHIN is pleased to welcome Dr. Jeffeory White as its new Chair of the Board of Directors. Dr. White is a long-time supporter of and advocate for GaHIN and has previously served on the Board and Executive Committee of the organization.
Dr. White, founder of White’s Pediatrics, is a Board-Certified Pediatrician who has been practicing medicine in Dalton since 1981. He is a graduate of Loma Linda School of Medicine in Loma Linda, California. He has served on several local boards and committees, including Hamilton Medical Center’s Board of Trustees. Dr. White is currently on the Board of Trustees for Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee. Dr. White is also chairperson of the Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics Medical Home Taskforce.
White’s Pediatrics was founded in 1981 as Dalton Pediatric Medical Center by Dr. White. Due to expansion and growth over the years, Dalton Pediatric Medical Center has grown into White’s Pediatrics, with three separate facilities in Dalton, Chatsworth, and Calhoun. Each location has a separate space for sick patients and well patients. The Dalton facility also houses an Urgent Care Clinic that provides emergency after-hours care.
White's Pediatrics Foundation was the brainchild of White's Pediatrics employees who recognized a patient's medical needs cannot be separated from their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs. All of these areas must be addressed in order for true healing to be achieved. The Foundation provides assistance to patient families in numerous areas, including diapers, food and clothing. All assistance is funded by donations.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. White as the Chair of the GaHIN Board,” said Denise Hines, Executive Director of GaHIN. “Dr. White has been a strong advocate for GaHIN since our inception because he has seen firsthand the difference having comprehensive patient information – available through GaHIN – can make in improving treatment decisions and reducing costs.”
