(Denison, IA) – The Board of Trustees, staff and employees of Crawford County Memorial Hospital extends its congratulations to Dr. David Wright for achieving designation as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS).

The designation of Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) is conferred upon American College of Surgeons members, honorary members, and life and retired members in recognition of their voluntary activities and service to advance medicine and surgery.

By meeting the College’s stringent membership requirements, Fellows of the College have earned the distinguished right to use the designations of “FACS” (Fellow, American College of Surgeons) after their names. An applicant for Fellowship must be a graduate of an approved medical school; must have completed advanced training in one of the 14 surgical specialties recognized by the College; must possess certification by an American surgical specialty board or appropriate certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada; and must have been in practice for at least one year at the time of his or her application.
