The board of directors of Donalsonville Hospital has announced the retirement of Hospital Administrator, Chuck Orrick after 30 plus years of loyal service and leadership.  

Mr. Orrick plans to retire at the end of 2022 and over the next month will transfer the administration of the hospital to current CFO, James Moody, effective May 1, 2022.

President and Chairman of the Board Herman Brookins said of Orrick’s retirement, “On behalf of the board of directors and the nearly 400 employees of Donalsonville Hospital, we thank Chuck Orrick for the more than three decades he has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to lead and grow this great hospital. He will be greatly missed.”

A University of Georgia graduate, Mr. Orrick has seen this 65- bed rural hospital through expansion, construction, changing economies, a Category 5 Hurricane and most recently a global pandemic and international healthcare crisis. Under Mr. Orrick’s methodical and inspired leadership, the Donalsonville Hospital’s team has come through these trials and tribulations with strong staff, fiscally sound and with a bright future in healthcare. 

When announcing his retirement to staff, Mr. Orrick said, “I will never be able to put into words the appreciation for the opportunities this hospital has given me and for the incredible employees that I have worked with over the years.  Donalsonville Hospital and Seminole Manor Nursing Home will always be very special to me and my family.”

Mr. Orrick will remain on the board of directors and help guide the new administration towards maintaining Donalsonville Hospital’s status of the number one medium sized primary care hospital in rural Georgia. He plans to spend his retirement with his lovely wife Kim, his son Kerry and daughter-in-law Betsy and his grandson Charlie.
