The addition of Doug Boedeker and Leigh Cannon completed the Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) Foundation board roster with their approval at the organization’s recent meeting.
The two are now part of the 15-member, non-profit board whose mission is to increase awareness of needs and generate resources for projects at FCMH.
Boedeker is originally from Beavercreek, but has made Fayette County his home for nearly 50 years. He recently retired from FCMH where he was employed for 44 years as the Leader of Cardiopulmonary and Safety/Security. He and his wife, Pam, look forward to spending more time with their kids and grandkids.
Cannon has been with the Fayette County Public Health District for 15 years and has served as the Deputy Health Commissioner since 2010. She has two children and is also a native of the area.
“Doug’s passion for and knowledge of the hospital will be valuable as the foundation evaluates needs and determines where to invest. Leigh’s vast experience in public health and community-minded spirit will be an asset as we continue to promote the work of the hospital,” said Foundation Board President, Shannon Jacobs. “We are pleased to welcome them to the board.”
So far in 2020, the FCMH Foundation has invested close to $50,000 in the facility for equipment purchases and continue to work on the Let’s Work TogethER Emergency Department Renovation to expand and upgrade the current emergency department.
