David Spillers, chief executive officer for the Huntsville Hospital Health System, will be the featured speaker at the 2019 Guntersville Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Breakfast, sponsored by Marshall Medical Centers.

All Marshall County residents are welcome to attend the event Sept. 11, which is held to keep citizens informed about healthcare available locally.

In 2018, Marshall Medical Centers entered into an affiliation agreement with the Huntsville Hospital Health System, which is the third largest publicly-owned hospital system in the nation, serving patients in north Alabama and southern Tennessee.

Marshall Medical Center CEO Gary Gore said the agreement makes it possible for Marshall Medical to continue providing healthcare well into the future. Huntsville Hospital’s expanded network includes hospitals in Madison, Athens, Decatur, Boaz, Guntersville, Moulton, Red Bay, Sheffield and Fayetteville, Tenn.

Spillers became CEO of Huntsville Hospital in 2006. Under his leadership, the organization has grown from one hospital to 11 owned facilities, one managed facility and affiliation relationships with two other hospitals. The number of employees has grown from 4,000 to over 15,000. Huntsville Hospital Health System was recently recognized nationally as the second best hospital in Alabama by U.S. News and World Report.

Prior to joining Huntsville Hospital, Spillers was at Mission Health in Asheville, NC, for 18 years where he served as CIO, CFO and COO before coming to Huntsville.

The Healthcare Breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 11 at the Gunter’s Landing Golf Club. The breakfast is free and open to anyone in Marshall County. Please RSVP to the Guntersville Chamber at gcc@lakeguntersville.org or by calling (256)582-3612.
