Local businessman David Gregory is the newest member of the Piggott Health Care Facilities Board, the body which oversees operations of Piggott Community Hospital and its entities. Gregory was named to the board recently to replace Guy Brinkley, Jr., who has retired after a lengthy period of service.

Gregory owns and operates Gregory Insurance in Piggott, a company first started by his father, Charles. He is a native of Piggott, and a PHS graduate, and has also been active in church and a number of civic organizations. He and his wife, Kelly, have three children-sons Brian and Noah and daughter Taylor.

"I'm honored to be asked to serve on the board," Gregory said of the new responsibility. "My family has a long history with both the city of Piggott and the hospital and I just consider it a privilege to be able to serve in this capacity."

He was appointed to replace the retiring Guy Brinkley, Jr., a longtime local attorney and former municipal judge. Brinkley was one of the original members of the Health Care Facilities Board, named to the body when it was first organized in the mid-1970's and tasked with building the new hospital campus.

"We are so glad to welcome David to the board," noted Board Chairman Tom Sneed."He will be a great addition to the board and we're looking forward to working with him in the future."

"David's experience is so valuable to us and we're so fortunate to have him on our board," added hospital CEO James L. Magee. "Not only in respect to his experience as a local businessman but also his many years of involvement with the insurance industry. We are glad to welcome him to the board of directors."

Along with Sneed and Gregory, the remaining members of the Piggott Health Care Facilities Board are Paula O. Blackwell, Danny Brown and Keith Crittenden.
