Wendi Waugh has been named the Administrative Director of Cancer Services/Community Health and Wellness at Southern Ohio Medical Center. In this position, Waugh will assume leadership of the SOMC Life Center as well as SOMC’s Community Health Department. She will also continue in her leadership role at the SOMC Cancer Center.
SOMC’s Community Health Department routinely organizes community health screenings, while the SOMC Life Center works with individuals to help them improve their overall health through exercise and events such as the August 12 ‘Tri For Your LIFE’ triathlon.
“I’m excited about this opportunity,” Waugh said. “The Life Center and the Community Health Department each play important roles in improving the overall health of our community. I think it makes sense to align the two, and I’m looking forward to making sure our community is able to get the most of the opportunities SOMC provides.”
Waugh began working at SOMC in 1986 and has been the Administrative Director of Cancer Services since 2001.
She currently resides in Oak Hill and has two children, one daughter who is entering her senior year Ohio State University and a son who is beginning his junior year at Oak Hill High School.
