Pike brings over thirty years of leadership experience in health care management to his new role at FMCH.  Pike has spent the past nine years filling interim Chief Financial Officer positions for Quorum Health Resources after retiring as Chief Financial Officer at Southwest Alabama Medical Center in Thomasville, Alabama.

“The Board of Trustees is committed to the success of FMCH.  We feel confident that Jeremy will help lead us through this time of transition.

Heather Elmore is a breath of fresh air. For the first time in years, she has made me feel like my children aren't just a number. She takes her time getting to know you during the appointments. She goes above and beyond her duties for example emailing extra materials and checking to see how the child is doing. We LOVE Heather!
