Representatives from Huntsville Memorial Hospital will open the floor to questions, comments and concerns at a town hall meeting Monday night.

HMH chief executive officer Ralph Beaty hopes the open invitation will give the hospital staff a better understanding of the public’s concerns, as well as inform the public of the many things going on at HMH.

“If you go back to the spring, when we had our reduction in force, a lot of rumors were spread and a lot of things were being said speculating about it, and we have tried to bring those to light, but really the purpose of this is not just to shed light on those types of issues, but also to reconnect with the community as a whole,” he said.

Beaty, radiologist David Rex, emergency room medical director Stephen Antwi, board of directors chairman Steve Davis and other HMH employees are expected to be on hand for the discussion.

“It gives us at the hospital the opportunity to hear back from the community that we’re serving, like what we are doing well and what we are not doing well,” Beaty said. “We hope they have constructive criticism to give us some input on things we can do to accommodate them.”

The meeting will take place at the Walker Education Center, located at 1932 19th St. from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Those who are unable to attend will be able to listen to the meeting on KSAM 101.7 FM and KHVL-AM 1490.
