David Bottoms and the WellStar Foundation
David Bottoms is Principal at The Bottoms Group and Chair of the WellStar Foundation Board. For twenty years, WellStar Foundation has acted as a supporting organization to the WellStar Health System, Northwest Georgia’s largest not-for-profit healthcare provider. “Not-for-profit” means that instead of distributing revenues to individual shareholders, we reinvest revenues into new WellStar programs and enhanced services for the benefit of our community.
David has been and continues to be deeply involved in several community service organizations, and provides a great example of a business leader who also carves out a significant amount of time to help make his community a better place.
We addressed a wide range of topics including:
- Disparities in availability of health care services across the state
- The unique challenges presented by the COVID pandemic
- Dealing with the large amount of “unreimbursed care” delivered by the WellStar system
- “Actively” balancing priorities
