At Emerson Hospital’s Annual Meeting held recently, W. Timothy Hess, a Maynard 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 Maynard,” added Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson. “We look forward to working with Tim 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.”
Tim is the principal and design director at InSitu Architects of Maynard. He chaired the Maynard Cultural Council and served on the town’s Coolidge School Re-Use Task Force. He currently serves as a Director of the Maynard Business Alliance. He uses Emerson for his healthcare and is looking forward to establishing relationships with the hospital that will benefit the needs of the greater community.
He is part of the class of 2020 which is comprised of corporators from towns throughout Emerson Hospital’s service area including Acton, Bedford, Carlisle, Concord, Groton and Littleton.
