Vacancy available on Syringa Hospital board Trustee Dave Green moving out of area

— Those who have an interest in the future of Syringa Hospital and live within its taxing district may want to consider a new volunteer job.

David Green, the board’s chair, is moving out of the area and will be unable to continue serving as a trustee.

This leaves a vacancy and the board is accepting applications for replacement trustees, and plans to make a selection prior to the regular board meeting set for Monday, Nov. 23.

The replacement will serve until the next regular board election in May of 2017 when a new trustee will be elected to fill the remainder of the term. Board members must be qualified electors of the state of Idaho and residents of the Syringa Hospital District—comprised of Idaho County except for the Cottonwood School District.

Green has served on the board since 2009.

“I’m very sorry to be leaving the Syringa Board. It is a great hospital with a tremendous staff of dedicated people providing high quality care to our community,” Green said. “Serving on the board has been very rewarding and I’m very glad I’ve had this experience.”

To be considered for the position, send a letter of interest by Nov. 12, to Dina Cervantes, Syringa Hospital and Clinics, 607 West Main Street, Grangeville, ID 83530 or Describe any related experience and why you would like to serve on the Syringa Hospital Board.

Green said serving on the Syringa Hospital and Clinics Board of Trustees is rewarding but challenging and Syringa is a “great facility with a committed and exceptional staff and strives to provide high quality healthcare services for Idaho County.”

Syringa is currently undergoing a major remodeling effort to improve accessibility and comfort for patients, families, and friends and to expand the primary care clinic.
