During his twenty-three years representing the second largest hospital in Georgia, W. Asbury Stembridge, Jr., FACHE had a driving passion to provide the highest quality healthcare to his hometown Macon, GA. This passion energized his quest to find the most qualified physicians in the country to join his hospital staff and become valuable community members. Asbury recognized early on that successful recruitment efforts had to be more than mutually beneficial to the hospital and the new staff member. The resulting placement had to benefit the community with enhanced medical services and prideful civic responsibility.
