FALLBROOK — At the Fallbrook Healthcare District board meeting of December 10, Barbara Mroz and Lynette Shumway were sworn in as directors.
For each of these women, it is the first time serving on a board of directors. Each has indicated that she looks forward to serving the Fallbrook community for her four-year term.
Both women bring healthcare backgrounds and experience to the board.
Mroz, an 18-year resident of Fallbrook, worked for several years in the managed healthcare field.
Shumway is a registered nurse who works at Fallbrook Hospital as a quality improvement coordinator. She is a resident of Fallbrook.
At the meeting, the board elected their officers for the upcoming year. Gordon Tinker was elected president; Milt Davies, vice president; and Mroz, secretary.
The office of treasurer is appointed by the president and Tinker appointed Hollis Moyse. This is the third year to which Moyse has been appointed to this office.
There are five standing committees of the board and Tinker assigned each director to serve.
The committee assignments are:
• Finance/Audit/Grant/Investment: Moyse, chair; Shumway, member
• Facilities: Shumway, chair; Tinker, member
