50 years young

Oconee Regional celebrates

Oconee Regional Medical Center is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Bill Coleman and Mollie Thomas are two of the hospital’s longest serving employees and they don’t show signs of retiring anytime soon.



Bill Coleman

1965-present

Bill Coleman never wanted to be a radiologist, but he’s far from sorry that he became Oconee Regional Medical Center’s director of Radiology.

“I’ve had a crazy life. I’ve had a wonderful time, I tell you what’s the truth. I’ve had a ball,” he said. “I have to pinch myself because I’ve been so fortunate and I’ve had so many friends.”

After 42 years running the radiology department and seeing it grow from offering nascent imaging technology in 1965 to technology today that allows doctors to look inside the human brain and observe how it functions, Coleman said it’s been an impressive transformation.

“It’s been a fascinating field, because nobody even dreamed of these things back when I was first starting,” he said. “I don’t know of anything you could say to explain it, but just that it’s been a progression of technology, bursting at the seams. It’s more and more every day.”
