Lake Chelan Hospital Board invites letters of interest for open position

Lake Chelan Community Hospital & Clinics (LCCHC) Board of Commissioners are accepting letters of interest from candidates who would like to fill the board seat vacated by Judge Thomas Warren, who passed away last week.

The LCCHC Board of Commissioners directly oversee hospital operations and will appoint the new commissioner. The appointed member will serve until November 2019, when a new election will be held. Letters of interest should include a candidate’s credentials and experience, as well as reasons why they want to serve as a LCCHC board member.

“Commissioner Tom Warren will be greatly missed by the LCCHC community,” said Mary Signorelli, LCCHC Board Chair. “His contributions were constant, and his commitment to LCCHC undeniable. He leaves not only a vacancy in our hearts, but a very challenging job to appoint someone to fill his position.

“We are looking for an individual who is dedicated to quality healthcare in our community and has displayed a continuous commitment to advancing medical services offered by LCCHC. Candidates must also have time to both attend meetings and serve as an advocate for hospital projects.”

Candidates must submit letters to Dee Barnett, Director of LCCHC Human Resources, at PO Box 908, Chelan, WA 98816 or fax to 509-682-3453 no later than Tuesday, May 8. The LCCHC Board of Commissioners will consider all letters of interest.
