New board member Stanley Hoffman, Sr., was sworn in at the meeting of the full Board of Directors last month.
Hoffman, of Bethel, will be representing Unit 5, replacing long time Bethel board member Bill Kristovich. Unit 5 includes Bethel, Napakiak, Napaskiak and Oscarville.
Bill Kristovich has been an involved and active board member for nearly 20 years, serving as Executive Board vice chair and hospital Governing Body chair for many of those years, as well as serving on many committees.
Board Chair Ray Alstrom expressed heartfelt appreciation for Mr. Kristovich’s contribution to YKHC leadership and years of service and dedication while extending a warm welcome to Mr. Hoffman. Hoffman has also found committee work to do, with assignments to the Housing and LifeMed committees and the Human Studies board.
In other action, the Board approved the FY12 corporate goals and moved to restrict the sale of soda pop at the YK Delta Regional Hospital, tackling the ongoing epidemic of tooth decay in the region.
