HRMC Elects Board Members and Officers
July 25, 2019
Huron, SD – Dr. William Miner was reelected as board chairman for Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) at the June board meeting.
Dr. Miner, who is an internal medicine physician at Tschetter & Hohm Clinic, has served on the hospital board since 2017 and previously served as a medical staff representative to the board. Laurie Solem and Tom Hansen were reelected as vice chairman and treasurer, respectively. The board elected Justin Picek as secretary.
Additionally, Denis Drake, retired, was elected for his first term as an at-large board member, replacing Dougl Balvin who has reached term limit. David McGirr, Greater Huron Development Corporation; Picek and Solem were reelected to second terms.
HRMC is a private, not-for-profit organization. When the ownership of Huron’s hospital passed from the Fransciscan Sisters to a locally-owned, private corporation (Huron Regional Medical Center, Inc.) in 1978, those involved in the purchase wanted to ensure Huron’s community hospital would be governed by a board of directors reflecting a broad-base of the community.
The volunteer board consists of three members recommended by the medical staff, one recommended by the City of Huron and one recommended by the Beadle County Commission. The other board members are elected at large. Each board member is elected for a three-year term and can serve up to three consecutive terms.
The property, funds, affairs and business of HRMC are managed by the board of directors, which is vested with the powers and authority conferred by the laws of South Dakota. More information about HRMC and the governing board is available at www.huronregional.org/about-us.
