Why are you volunteering your time as Advisor to the Board for the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board? My entire professional career was spent at the hospital and I was involved in the original HMH Foundation Board. I’ve been part of this valuable foundation from the beginning and I know how important it is in supporting the healthcare of our region.
As someone who worked for decades with Hardin Memorial Hospital (now Baptist Health Hardin), what has it been like to see the changes and growth in regional healthcare? The growth has been tremendous and is all-encompassing. I served as Director of Planning and Development at HMH, so I was privileged to be on the ground floor for much of the changes and expansions that have occurred throughout the years.
What does gratitude mean to you and what are you grateful for? Both during its time as HMH and today, the reason the hospital exists is for the patients and their families. The hospital has continued to expand and improve services based on what we saw were the needs of our patients. Watching and being a part of that growth certainly fills me with gratitude.
