BOARD MEMBERS APPOINTED 9-26-16 LMS
The Steele Memorial Medical Center (SMMC) Board of Directors will be welcoming some new members appointed Monday, September 26, by the Lemhi County Commissioners.
SMMC Chief Executive Officer Jeanie Gentry, board member Mark Oliverson, DMD, Board Chair Dennis Lile and Chief Operating Officer Abner King presented the commissioners with three names of applicants recommended by the SMMC Board. Oliverson, who headed the search committee, said there are two openings on the board due to Lileís mandatory retirement after serving three terms and Cori Allenís decision not to renew her three year board membership. He said three applications were received and they were from: Rebecca Hilgendorf, Joe Proksch and Sherry Taylor.
Oliverson said Hilgendorf has been consistently attending board meetings, is very interested in becoming involved and has a lot of hospital based experience. He said Taylor is retired after having been a long time hospital employee and has an interest in building up the hospitalís medical facility. He said Proksch contributes very valuable input from having served on many boards over the years and that he is presently a committee-member-at-large on the SMMC broadís Finance Committee. Oliverson said that all three applicants have a vested interest in the hospital.
According to Oliverson the board decided its preferable order of acceptance would be Hilgendorf, Taylor and Proksch. The commissioners accepted the recommendation. Proksch will be the alternate member.
In parting Lile said he has loved his three, three year terms plus one year on the SMMC Board and that his participation will now be as a member of the audience.
In a brief progress update King said during one of the busiest days; of the 64 people working on construction of the hospitalís new clinic 47 of them were local contractors. Gentry commented on some dust issue complaints generated by the construction and King said paving a portion of the parking lot is scheduled to begin this week. He also said that windows and doors are due around October 10th.
