Wayne Medical Center names EMS station in honor of Dr. Joe Hall


WAYNESBORO, Tenn. – The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) station at Wayne Medical Center (WMC) has been dedicated in honor of the late Joe I. Hall, MD. A ceremony was held November 10 to dedicate the facility as the Joe I. Hall, MD, EMS Building.

Dr. Hall was a family medicine specialist who served on the WMC medical staff from 1996 until the time of his passing on November 12, 2020. During that tenure, he served as chief of the hospital’s medical staff for numerous terms.

“Dr. Hall was a beloved member of our medical staff and served as a mentor to many of our employees through his dedication to his patients and community,” said WMC CEO Tyler Taylor. “We are deeply honored to be able to remember Dr. Hall by dedicating this facility in his name.”

In addition to his service to the local medical community, Dr. Hall was a member of the Wayne County Commission at the time of his passing. During the dedication ceremony, Wayne County Executive Jim Mangubat shared personal remembrances of Dr. Hall’s impact on the local community.

“I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Hall when he was a certified registered nurse anesthetist at Wayne Medical Center and continued to work with him when he came back to Waynesboro as a physician,” said Mangubat. “When he asked my father, Dr. J.V. Mangubat, to write a letter of recommendation for his application to medical school, my father asked why he wanted to go back to school. Joe replied that he wanted to give more back to the community that helped to raise him.”

The EMS facility named in Dr. Hall’s honor is located on the WMC campus in Waynesboro.
