Richard Wedig

Chief Clinic & Surgical Services Officer

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Admistration and have been involved in health care and health care administration since 1972. I trained as a physician assistant and life support systems in the United States Air Force, which gave me the opportunity to build a profession in Health Care. In 1980, I became a hospital administrator and worked for a hospital management company, which managed hospitals from the Midwest to the West Coast.

In 2013, I had to opportunity to become involved in the design and development of a new surgery department for Wickenburg Community Hospital. Upon completion of the design, I was offered the opportunity to join the staff of Wickenburg Community Hospital as the Director of Clinic Services and oversee the construction of a new clinic and the continueing development of the surgery department. Once those projects were completed, I assumed the role of Chief of Clinic and Surgical Services. It is a pleasure to be a part of a health care organization that is so dedicated to providing world class personal health care to the community.

My wife and I then relocated to Wickenburg in 2014. This is home; we love the beauty of this area with clean air, blue skies, and great friends. We have 4 children and 22 grandchildren who love to visit us in Wickenburg; it makes for a busy house on the weekends and holidays.
