Dr. Peter Perll was welcomed to the AMC Board of Trustees following his recent election. Also at the April 11 meeting, new officers were elected.
Sterling Oliver will continue as chair of the board. Bill Dubbert is the new vice chair, Jo Ellen Craghead is secretary, and Dr. Eugene Thomas is treasurer. All nominations were approved by unanimous vote.
A motion passed to have Oliver and Dubbert be the representatives on the new SSM Audrain Health Care, Inc. Board of Directors. Dave Neuendorf, president/CEO, reported that the Board of Trustees will exist until the bonds are paid off on Nov. 1, 2016.
Neuendorf also told board members the money in the Rothwell Fund becomes the property of the county for healthcare related purposes after the Board of Trustees dissolves. The funds will not transfer to SSM. The Fund was established by Dr. Clarence A. Rothwell on Feb. 5, 1935 with an initial amount of $125,000. The interest from the endowment fund has been used at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.
