Expanded board guides DCMH

GREENSBURG – Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) has responded proactively to the transitions in healthcare by expanding its Board of Trustees to meet the changing needs. Thursday evening marked the first official meeting for the newly expanded DCMH Board.

In the fall of 2013, long-time board members, Toni Collins and Tim Nobbe announced their retirement from the Hospital Board and they served in their final meetings last month. Over a combined 30+ years of service, Collins and Nobbe helped guide significant changes, including multiple building projects, service enhancements, national and state recognitions and many more positive initiatives for the Hospital. Many on the DCMH team have expressed appreciation for their decades of leadership and involvement.

“The expectations for a Hospital Board of Trustees and their governance have grown exponentially over the years,” commented DCMH President and CEO, Linda Simmons. “Expanding regulations, the changing environment and additional committees have increased demands on the time of our Board. As a result, they recognized the need to involve individuals from the community with diverse backgrounds and resources who could help with these additional responsibilities.”

The DCMH Board approached the Decatur County Commissioners regarding the expanded roles and made the recommendation to increase the size of the governing body from seven to nine total members as allowed by Indiana statute. Once approved, the replacement of Nobbe and Collins required that four new members be appointed by the Commissioners. The Board conducted an extensive search process for those to be recommended to the County for appointment and as a result, seven names were presented for consideration.

The new members of the DCMH Board of Trustees appointed by the Commissioners were:

Darren Evans, VP/General Manager MEMS Group, Hill-Rom

Laura Johnson, Kindergarten Teacher, South Decatur Elementary

Carrie Stapp, VP/Director of Marketing, MainSource Financial Group

Steve Stringer, CPA/Tax Manager, Blue & Co., LLC.
