“Dick has been a trusted colleague and a great friend,” says Cone Health Executive Vice President and Alamance Regional Medical Center President Preston Hammock. “His goal has always been to do his part to help us provide the best possible experience for our patients and their families.”

Donahey moved to Alamance County after the merger of County and Memorial Hospitals. He played a critical role in integrating the two cultures and helping the team transition to the newly constructed Alamance Regional Medical Center.

Donahey has overseen many departments during his 27 years at Alamance Regional Medical Center. These include employee health, human resources, training and development, dining, volunteer and rehabilitation services.

His most recent task was leading the facilities engineering team during construction of the new cancer center, and expansion of the surgical services and emergency department areas. The project was the most expansive and complex ever undertaken at Alamance Regional Medical Center.

“Dick has been a mentor to many and has always been key in the development of the excellent team of healthcare professionals working at Alamance Regional. His commitment to our mission and values has served our hospital and community well,” says Hammock.
