Gibson Area Hospital Radiologist Receives State Honors

A special reception was held Wednesday to honor Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services (GAHHS) Radiologist Gary Kerber, MD. Dr. Kerber is the recipient of the 2018 Illinois Rural Physician of Excellence Award from the Illinois Rural Health Association (IRHA).

Commenting on Dr. Kerber’s nomination and award, IRHA Executive Director Margaret Vaughn stated, “What struck me was that he has been able to bring high tech to rural communities. Without Dr. Kerber’s leadership in radiology at Gibson Area Hospital, patients would not receive this level of care.”

Dr. Kerber is known in the organization as a physician who truly places patient care first and foremost.

“He has a passion for rural and a passion for his patients. He is a genuine good guy,” said Rob Schmitt, GAHHS CEO.
