Melvin F. Broadnax, LLD
First RHG Board Chair
10/29/1929 - 04/08/2012
Rural Health Group’s visionary leader, Dr. Melvin Broadnax, was the soul of this organization since 1974 when Melvin and other community leaders decided that Northampton County needed health care. He worked tirelessly with the NC Office of Rural Health (Jim Bernstein, Burnie Patterson, etc.), politicians and local leaders (Jack Faison, Doc Brown) to make his dream of medical care in Jackson a reality.
Melvin was not just our first and only board chairman for close to 40 years, he was the impetus behind the Group’s dedication to the underserved. His compassion for others and his passion for equal access to superior quality health care have been the underpinnings of RHG and will continue to drive RHG.
