The North Lincoln Hospital (NLH) Foundation has installed two new members on its board of trustees.
Larry Garrison served on the NLH Foundation Board of Trustees for over 12 years before choosing to step aside for a while. He returned to the board because he is so positive about the hospital.
“I lived here when there was no hospital and I see what a benefit it is to our community,” he said.
Garrison is a third generation Lincoln City resident, a realtor with Windermere Real Estate and is active in numerous community organizations.
Scott Reed is a new trustee who chose to serve on the board as a way of giving back to Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital for the great care he received from the hospital.
Reed grew up in Tillamook and has been the principal at Taft High in Lincoln City for five years. He served as assistant principal for one year prior to becoming principal. He decided he wanted to work at Taft when visiting the school as a consultant.
“Health care is such an important part of our lives and our future. It’s important to make sure our students’ needs are met so they can focus on learning,” Reed said.
Connie Isaac, executive director for the NLH Foundation said, “We are very pleased to welcome these new trustees and look forward to adding their skills to the existing board. I know they will be a great asset not only to the foundation, but to the charitable community.”
The NLH Foundation was founded in 1983 as the fundraising organization for the North Lincoln Health District. The mission of the foundation is to “promote good will toward and encourage support of Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital for the health and well-being of the community.” All foundation assets are dedicated to the purchase of capital equipment, patient care programs, expansion, or remodeling of physical plant, educational programs or to other purposes deemed appropriate by the health district and the foundation’s board of directors.
