Board of Directors

Like the hospital, the Foundation is guided by an all-volunteer Board of Directors who represent the communities served by Harrison Medical Center. These volunteers chart the long-range course of the Foundation—working always to serve the medical center through community outreach activities. Additionally, these volunteers ensure that the Foundation is administered effectively and donors' interests are served. They are also ambassadors for Harrison in the communities they live and work.

Members

 

 Norton, Ray                                  

Harrison Medical Center is our community’s dominate health care provider and has been since before I was born at Harrison in the mid-1950’s. While the Medical Center’s sole reason for existing is to provide for our well-being, it is continually beset with challenges from sources outside of its control that constrain its ability to perform its mission of providing the exceptional medical care we all expect when we visit. By serving on the Board of the Medical Center Foundation I am able to, in a meaningful way, assist the Medical Center in its efforts to provide exceptional medical care to our community.”
