New Director Named For Cherry Hospital

The troubled Cherry Hospital has a new director who has ties to Eastern Carolina.

Philip Cook is currently president of a behavioral health consulting firm. Prior to moving to Tennessee Cook was a therapist in New Bern and had a private practice in Morehead City.

"It is an honor for me to return to Eastern North Carolina and serve my home state as the director of Cherry Hospital. I am excited about utilizing 20 years of psychiatric hospital administrative experience in the process of working with the fine staff at Cherry to improve behavioral healthcare in our region," said Cook.

Cook replaces Dr. Jack St. Clair who stepped down at the end of last year.
