Dr. Stacey Johnston Joins Beaufort Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees


BEAUFORT, SC – Beaufort County Council has appointed Dr. Stacey Johnston to the Beaufort Memorial Hospital (BMH) Board of Trustees, replacing pediatrician Dr. James Simmons, who stepped down this spring after serving 10 years on the nine-member board.                    

A board-certified Family Medicine specialist, Dr. Johnston has been a hospitalist at BMH for eight years. She is a graduate of Emory University School of Medicine and completed her residency at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah in 2009.                                    

Dr. Johnston is currently the Chief Medical Information Officer for the hospitalist program and also has served as its medical director for the last five years. She also served as a Girl Scouts leader in Beaufort for seven years.

Dr. Johnston will serve out the remaining two years of Simmons’ third term. The physician was one of two candidates the Board of Trustees recommended to the council to fill the vacant board seat.                    

“County Council recognized Dr. Johnston’s longstanding commitment to improving the health of the community,” said BMH Board of Trustees Chair Terry Murray. “We welcome her to the board and look forward to her contributions.”
