Call for nominations for hospital district board of directors
January 29 - February 18
HUERFANO COUNTY — With near urgency, this letter is being written to the residents of Huerfano County in an effort to raise attention to the need for the most qualified personnel to serve on the Board of Directors, for the Hospital and Veterans Community Living Center.
The life blood of this county, Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center, is at the confluence of extreme challenges not envisioned years ago. The stable operation of this facility is a difficult and challenging financial endeavor, made all the more trying by the dwindling veteran population and the expenses of managing a rural hospital.
On May 5th the citizens of Huerfano County will elect three new members to the Board of Directors for the Huerfano County Hospital District. This crucial election for the future long term operation of this Health Center is at stake. What is needed now is for the most qualified, business savvy people of this community to step up and lend their expertise in helping to operate this facility with a determined focus on its financial stability.
Capable, forward thinking, dedicated common sense idea people, with a true sense of commitment to listen, investigate, contribute and work with the Regional Health Center staff are encouraged to run for the Board of Director positions in this May election. Those interested in this noble cause should contact the Administration Office, Lynette Omer at (719) 738-5144 for details about these much needed positions. Call for nominations’ paperwork will need to be picked up between January 29 and February 22, with applications deadline March 2.
