Board of Directors recently said good-bye to the current chairman and welcomed two new members.
Steve Olson of Dean Health Care, the outgoing chairman who has been on the Board for over 16 years, shares some of his well-earned wisdom:
: What is something the Board has done or contributed to at HHU
that stands out as memorable?
: We've started some really innovative programs, like the flu program and infusion pharmacy, and have programs that help the community as part of HHU's
non-profit mission, like Meals On Wheels.
Home Medical Equipment really took off after getting the Dean contract, and we've opened new branches including the Hospice House.
: How has HHU
changed during your tenure?
Steve: Lots of Board members have come and gone, and before Rick (Bourne, current President and CEO) there were issues with growing too fast, the infrastructure couldn't keep up.
has become, and will become more so, an integral part of Dean and St. Mary's.
If we want to provide better care at lower cost, HHU
has to be a part of that equation.
Steve has been an integral part of HHU's growth over the years he's been on the Board, and Home Health United would like to thank him for his dedicated service.
"We are sad to be losing a great asset like Steve
, and we can't even begin to express how appreciative we are for his service over the years," said Rick Bourne.
