In light of growing healthcare needs across Idaho, and complexities in the healthcare industry, St. Luke’s Health System is adding three new members with diverse experience to its board of directors.
Lisa Grow, Dr. Allan Korn and Andrew Scoggin officially joined the board Nov. 15, 2016. Along with the 13 other members, they will provide guidance for St. Luke’s policy, development and service enhancement, and determination of how health system revenues will be reinvested back into local healthcare services, facilities and equipment.
“St. Luke’s is extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to engage these very accomplished professionals in our work and mission,” said Dr. David Pate, St. Luke’s president and chief executive officer. “They are all civic-minded, dedicated advocates for the health of people in our communities. I’m excited to have the chance to work with them at this very pivotal time in health care.”
