Dr. Elkins, a well-known, compassionate, influential, and dedicated provider at SWVHS, played a vital role in the health and wellness of our communities. He served in the executive leadership role as our Chief Medical Officer, he provided care to his patients within our community with over thirty years of medical experience, he mentored medical students along their educational journeys, and stayed focused on the health and safety of student athletes by serving as the Chair of the National Federation of High School Associated Sports Advisory Committee, and much more.

Throughout his time at SWVHS, Dr. Elkins embodied the core values of SWVHS; Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence, (ICARE), leaving an impactful legacy within the organization and the community.

To honor the life of our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Greg Elkins, Southern West Virginia Health System will be making and selling Dr. Elkins’ award-winning chili.

All of Dr. Greg Elkins’ award-winning chili sales at this event will go towards a scholarship fund in honor of his contribution to the communities we serve. For additional information about donations toward this scholarship fund, please contact:
