At Emerson Hospital’s Annual Meeting held recently, Chad Simon, an Acton resident, was elected as a Corporator of the hospital. Corporators represent the health interests of the 25 communities served by Emerson.
“As Emerson continues to succeed as a top community hospital in today’s challenging health care environment, our Corporators are an integral part of our mission to provide the best health care to every person in the many towns that the hospital and health system serves,” said Paul D. Birch, Chair, Emerson Hospital Board of Directors. “Through their work as ambassadors, they educate the community on ways that Emerson is expanding its services to treat an ever-growing population using the latest technology and surgical techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, while maintaining its focus on providing the highest quality compassionate care to patients. We are grateful to our Corporators who have accepted the responsibility to serve the community in this important way.”
Emerson relies on its volunteer corporators as ambassadors of the hospital through the work they do communicating information about the hospital's programs and services to the residents and businesses in their communities. Corporators also elect the hospital’s Board of Directors and new Corporators each year at the hospital’s annual meeting.
“We are proud of our new Corporator from Acton,” added Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson. “We look forward to working with him to deepen our relationships with residents and local organizations as we expand our services in new and exciting areas to provide advanced, quality health care for everyone in the area.”
Chad is currently a Senior Director of Global Marketing at PAREXEL International with nearly twenty years of strategy development, marketing, sales and leadership experience in pharmaceutical, technology and B2B verticals. He is also President of the Monument Place Homeowners Association. Chad and his wife Kelly have a young daughter in the Acton public school system. “Since moving to Acton from Philadelphia in 2011, a local hospital was part of the requirements for where we wanted to live. I was very impressed with the wonderful patient-centered specialty practices that Emerson offers and look forward to supporting the hospital’s mission and values through community outreach,” he explains.
Chad is part of the class of 2020 which is comprised of corporators from towns throughout Emerson Hospital’s service area including Bedford, Carlisle, Concord, Groton, Littleton and Maynard.
