Gene Benner, incoming Chair of the Western Maine Health Board presented outgoing Board Chair Robert Harmon with a chair honoring his dedication to the board at the June 2nd meeting of the Board of Trustees. Harmon has been on the board for 8 years, served 2 years as President and steps down to resume a board seat for another year. As of June 2, 2010, with Harmon stepping down and Benner becoming President, David Hoisington will become vice chair, Wendy Penley, treasurer, and Brad Cummings, secretary.
Upon receiving his chair Harmon shared his thoughts, "I have learned a lot in my 8 years on the board, most significantly is how important this hospital is to the community. The strength of this board is vital to keeping state of the art health care in the Oxford Hills."
