At the Board of Commissioners meeting on Thursday, April 25, Grays Harbor County Public Hospital District #1 Commissioners and CEO Josh Martin interviewed two candidates for the position left vacant by the resignation of Brent Meldrum. The Board motioned to appoint Carolyn Wescott of Elma to fill the position.
“I am excited to have Carolyn serve on the Summit Pacific Board of Commissioners,” said Andrew Hooper, Board Chair. “Carolyn has served as a community member volunteer on our Quality Committee for several years and has participated in our Wellness Fair for as long as I can remember. She is passionate about improving the health of our community and about making Summit Pacific the best place to receive healthcare.”
Wescott has been a member of the community for over 30 years. She looks forward to taking on the role of commissioner with a “win-win” approach to challenges and states, “I’m so excited for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to serving our community as a member of the Summit team.”
Wescott’s appointment will be effective June 1, 2019 and will last the remainder of the term, ending December 31, 2021.
