Bay Area Health District Position 4

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 )Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body. Such compensation shall not be deemed lucrative. The governing body may provide for reimbursement of a member for actual and reasonable traveling and other expenses necessarily incurred by a member in performing official duties. [1971 c.403 §2; 1983 c.327 §2; 1983 c.740 §53a; 1989 c.517 §1; 1995 c.79 §74]In Event of Vacancy: Except as otherwise provided by law, a vacancy in an elected office in the membership of the governing body of a district shall be filled by appointment by a majority of the remaining members of the governing body. If a majority of the membership of the governing body is vacant or if a majority cannot agree, the vacancies shall be filled promptly by the county court of the county in which the administrative office of the district is located. [ORS 198.320]

Town Where You Live Coos Bay
Your Experience/Qualificatons I am a financial expert, mom, and an advocate for community-focused health care. I have served as Vice President and Branch Manager of Pacific West Bank, as an accountant at a local CPA firm, and most recently as Director of Finance for the South Coast Education Service District. This will help me make sure the Hospital is effectively using the available resources. I also have a personal connection to the hospital as the staff was critical to saving the lives of myself and my son.

Term Four Years
The impact of COVID-19 and the related shutdowns will create increased health demands in the coming years. People deferred care because it was harder for many to visit a doctor or afford medical bills. The Hospital must be prepared to meet this moment, particularly for the most vulnerable members of our community. That will require leaders who can ask the right questions and determine how we can make dollars stretch as far as possible.

I am well positioned to assess how we can provide the most benefits to the public through our funding. Previously, I’ve been engaged in the work of a community bank and local public agency. I will use that experience to help guide the work of the hospital and clarify how we can best meet the increased needs of our community. Equally important, I will be able to assess how we can make choices that will support the health and vitality of our community for the long term and will advocate for those smart public policies.
I believe our Hospital works best when it is responsive to the needs of the community. It is important that we maintain an active conversation with the community at large and our employees to build collaboration and support for our work. To that end, I will also be actively soliciting feedback and input from the community – inviting opportunities to learn how we can be doing better.

I am also interested in what we can do to make our board meetings more accessible to the public. I would like to see us offer a public link so people can watch video of the proceedings without requesting one from the Hospital first. Similarly, we should be posting videos and minutes from the meetings to the Hospital’s website. When I checked today, the last meeting minutes posted were from 2019.
I am most interested in working to build collaboration between the hospital’s management, the workers of the hospital, and the community at large. Unlike most hospitals in Oregon, Bay Area Hospital is a public hospital intended to truly serve our local community. I want to ensure the community feels involved and supported by their hospital. I also saw firsthand the impact of the staff, who supported me and my family in our time of need. Employees came together to donate the leave my husband needed to take care of me and our newborn during my recovery. By making sure staff members have all the tools and resources needed to serve patients, we can provide the best quality experience for those like myself who rely on their support and service.

Town Where You Live North Bend
Your Experience/Qualificatons After graduating from San Jose State in 1976 I moved to North Bend to join the CPA firm of Yergen & Meyer, which later merged into Moss Adams CPAs. After retiring as a partner in the firm, I have served on the BAH Finance Committee for over 15 years and on the BAH Board since 2011.
County Coos
Term 4 years
As a current BAH Board member and Chair of the Finance Committee, I understand it is extremely important that we are good stewards of BAH financial resources. Prior Boards lead the way in responsibly growing the services offered at BAH and maintaining a financially healthy district. The hospital was originally constructed using a public bond issue that was paid off in 1987. Since that time BAH has not sought any further property tax or bonds levies. A strong financial position was particularly important as we weathered the COVID-19 challenges.

Each year the BAH Executive Team, Board, Quality Committee and Finance Committee work to review the Strategic Plan and the annual budget for the District. This planning and oversight provide emphasis in delivering healthcare services in a timely, safe and efficient manner.
The meetings held by the Board, the Quality Committee and the Finance Committee are all open to the public. Prior notice of these meetings are published in the local paper and on the BAH Facebook page. Even during the pandemic, the meetings are accessible online using WebEx video application. I encourage anyone interested in the activities of BAH to attend. Each Board meeting begins with public input.

The District has also produced Currents Health Magazine and an annual Community Benefits Report that are mailed to addresses within the district. Both of these publications have been suspended during the COVID crisis but I look forward to seeing them resumed in the coming year. BAH also shares news with district residents through its website, news articles, radio spots and billboards.
BAH is a very important resource to this area. It provides many services locally that would otherwise involve the time and expense of travel to Eugene or Portland. Being one of the largest employers within our county BAH provides local economic opportunities and serves as a much-needed element in the recruitment of healthcare providers to the Bay Area.

As a retired CPA, I believe I bring valuable skills and experience to the Board. I currently serve as Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee where the committee serves as a resource in advising the Board regarding financial matters. We are always looking for community members to serve on the Finance Committee and appreciate input from the public.

While my background is in finance and accounting, I truly believe that the Board’s main focus is and should be on the continuous improvement of the quality and safety of care at BAH. With your support, I look forward to continuing my service to BAH and this community.
