When Travis was asked why he filed to fill the board seat vacated by Mr. DeRosear, he replied, “I feel the hospital is a vital part of our community that I want to make sure stays in our community. I believe that the heart of any successful business is its employees. I am hopeful that my experience in leading high performing teams will allow me to be an asset with continuing to build a strong team at SCH.”
Travis took the oath from Chairman Lori Fulk at the December Board of Directors meeting. “We are so pleased that Travis sees the importance of our hospital in our community. We look forward to seeing what he can bring to the table with his extensive management experience,” said Fulk.
