The medical center held a reception Thursday to welcome Allen Tyra.
He is the Successor of Dwayne Blaylock who is now the Chief Executive at River Oaks in Floweed.
Tyra says he’s excited to be back in the area.
“For me this is almost like coming home. I grew up across the state line in Alabama in Hackleburg and as a child my pediatrician was here. Dr Stockton. As were many kids around this area. And I love small communities. I love how they rally around the hospital. I’m really looking forward to leading this hospital,” said Tyra.
