Mountain East Medical staff looks for a refreshing change as Johnny Toler immediately takes on the position of head of purchasing department after climbing the hospital employment latter.

Toler features a long list of employment in East Mountain Medical. About 13 years ago, he began working as an assistant druggist in the hospital pharmacy. When the pharmacy closed, employment knew they could not lose such a great worker so they moved Toler over to the purchasing department.

For the Toler family, East Mountain Medical is a family affair. Johnny Toler’s wife, Carolyn, is the head of the hospital’s gynecology department. Therefore, in addition to their two children, Johnny and Carolyn Toler feel as if the East Mountain staff is family.

The hospital administration is extremely enthusiastic about the change from Bob Wilkinson to Toler.

“Bob’s abilities will be greatly missed at this hospital, but I know that Johnny Toler is a person we can all depend on to do whatever is necessary to keep this department going. I have great faith in him and the hospital,” said hospital administrator Harry Illscott.

Toler himself is also excited to take over the job.

“This hospital means a lot to me and my family, and I will give my best efforts to making our purchasing department the best. I learned from a fine man-Bob Wilkinson-and I hope I can continue to build on the foundation he established.”
