Welcome New Board Member Mary McCullough & New District Board Rep Josie Sanchez
Mary McCullough recently retired from the San Benito Health Care District Board of Directors with the distinction of being the longest serving board member to the District. She was elected to serve 9 terms totaling 36 years. During her tenure on the District Board she was appointed to the Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD) Board of Directors in 2002 where she attributes her wealth of knowledge about District Hospitals. Mary began her service to the hospital as a volunteer through Hazel Hawkins Hospital’s Auxiliary in 1963. She has dedicated decades to the community hospital and has been instrumental in their growth and expansion. Mary attributes her capability of providing years of leadership with her philosophy, “Don’t sit still! Keep moving! Walk, practice yoga, garden, connect with friends and food.” The Foundation Trustees are honored to have Mary serve on the Foundation Board.
Josie Sanchez was elected to the San Benito Health Care District Board in 2014. She is a life-long resident of San Benito County and worked at Hazel Hawkins Hospital for 40 years. Josie’s career spanned 37 years as an administrative assistant in Nursing Administration and upon retiring, she served 3 additional years in a per diem status. Josie chose to serve on the District Board because she wanted to serve the community and felt her years as an employee gave her excellent insight to the daily operations of the District and her knowledge would be beneficial in helping the District move forward. The Foundation extends a warm welcome to Josie and are pleased to have her on the Board.
