Wayne Brower has been named Chairman of the Board of Directors at Bingham Memorial Hospital. The appointment came as Joseph Cannon retired as Chairman Wednesday.
“I am extremely grateful for Mr. Cannon’s dedicated service to Bingham Memorial and the leadership he provided on the Board,” said Jake Erickson, CEO of BMH. “As Chairman, he was an important member who offered valuable oversight on important issues and thoughtful consideration of proposed changes to keep Bingham Memorial growing. Thank you, Mr. Cannon, for your time, wisdom, and dedication.”
Also this week, Bingham Memorial announced that Gary Baumgartner will succeed Brower as Vice-Chair of the Board. Layne Van Orden was retained as Treasurer. Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. David Peterson was sworn in as a Board Member, representing medical staff. He replaces dermatologist Dr. Adam Wray, who filled Cannon’s seat on the board.
Erickson said he was confident the board would be well-served by the changes. “The diverse backgrounds, experiences, and unique perspectives of all Board Members are invaluable as Bingham Memorial continues to experience growth and remain sustainable,” said Erickson. “We are strategically positioned to move further into the future, significantly transforming the way healthcare is delivered throughout Eastern Idaho.”
