With this new addition, the hospital’s Board is now a team of eight who, along with the hospital administration team, will provide high-level leadership to all areas of hospital operations. “All three of our newest Board members embody the spirit of community and have a passion for health and wellness. We’re very excited for their variety of talents and backgrounds, as it will strengthen our team as we continue to offer the highest quality of care available,” said Dr. Jay Peterson, Board Chair.
