New officers were elected at the Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation Board meeting this week.
As of Tuesday’s meeting, Tom Eads will head up the Foundation in the position of president. Chad Boyd was elected Vice-President, and Rick Klinginsmith was chosen as treasurer. Barbara Cox was re-elected a secretary for the Foundation. They will all serve two-year- terms.
The Board also approved the purchase of two new pieces of equipment, at a total of $13,000. A SARA lift was approved for the mdical/surgical and physical therapy departments. A Hoyer lift will also replace a 15-year-old piece of equipment currently in use. They were purchased with funds raised at the charity golf tournament last Friday. The annual event brought in more than $20,000 for the hospital.
