Bay Area Health District Position 5

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.

Town Where You Live Coos Bay
Your Experience/Qualificatons I grew up in Coos Bay and I’m proud to be raising my family here. Some of my earliest memories are of doing homework at the Bay Area Hospital while my mom and her co-workers took care of patients. Even at that early age, I saw how the success of the hospital depended on the people it employs to care for patients and serve the community. Working as a millwright and electrician, I’ve seen firsthand why it is critical that employers value their workers to build collaboration and deliver results.

How the hospital spends its resources should focus on benefiting the public it serves. This is the definition of a public hospital and why it is critical to have community members like myself serve as elected leaders who oversee the work of the hospital. We need to focus on ensuring that we are helping the community recover from COVID-19, preventing the continued spread and addressing the health impacts from the pandemic. We also need to focus on fair compensation for all workers, not too much for executives and not too little for frontline workers. I’d like to see more outreach by the Hospital to seek community input about how we can prioritize services and would use my position on the board to identify how we can do that better.
I’ve been an active part of this community for years and am committed to making myself accessible and available to get residents’ input on how the hospital can do better. I would like to see us explore more listening sessions, particularly for parts of the community that may not seek us out to provide feedback. We should also do more to make board meetings more available to the public, adding recordings and up to date minutes to the hospital’s website and making the broadcast of the meetings available without people needing to sign up first. I’d also like to see how we can better build relationships with groups in the community to help us get the word out about the work of the hospital.
It is critical to me that we make sure the people that make the hospital run are valued and respected, and that community members like us come first. We must improve community health and access to health care so more Coos families can thrive. That requires us to strengthen the connection between our hospital and the people and community it serves. I’m proud to have deep roots in Coos County and connections with the working people that build our community and make it go. Now, more than ever, we need someone who will stand up for us and that is why I am running to serve in the Bay Area Hospital District.

The 2020 strategic plan for BAH has been designed to increase patient safety and quality while delivering increased value for patients. It also provides a detailed roadmap for prioritizing needs and funding. Staying focused on this plan will enable the hospital district to use funding as efficiently as possible to provide services to as many people as possible. As a doctor who cared for our community for 29 years, making sure the hospital takes care of our citizens is especially important to me.
The BAH District Board has two important committees: the Quality and Patient Safety Committee and the Finance Committee. These advisory groups play a critical role in both providing oversight of hospital function and making recommendations to the District Board. Community members play a key role on both committees and are directly involved in decision making. I have served on the Quality Committee for many years and will use my experience as a board member and my medical experience in the community to continue to actively serve. Keeping residents of the health district informed is a challenging but critically important process. Although there is increased emphasis on digital communication, not all community members have access to this. We need to use all varieties of communication to reach the community, including an active website and social media as well as print, TV and radio.
I have been in healthcare my whole life. I took care of infants, toddlers and young people for 29 years at North Bend Medical Center as a pediatrician in our community. I learned that helping individuals stay healthy is as important as caring for them when they are sick. There is a great and overwhelming need in our community to help those with specific diseases such as diabetes and cancer as well as help those who are healthy to stay that way. Everyone in our community must have access to great healthcare. Making that a reality is a big challenge in today’s economy. I would like to have the opportunity to use my experience as a board member, and as a doctor to so many in this community, to continue to be part of the effort to take on that challenge.
