â€œEmerson Hospital relies on its Corporators to be informed ambassadors for the hospital and to assist in Emersonâ€™s outreach efforts in their communities,â€ Ron Johnson, chairman of the Emerson Hospital Board of Directors, said. â€œCorporators are truly strategic partners of the organization. We are grateful that all of the Corporators will serve Emerson Hospital in this important way.â€
Corporators represent the interests of the 25 communities served by Emerson Hospital. They become knowledgeable about Emersonâ€™s mission and the services it provides through regular breakfast briefings, annual meetings and other activities. In turn, they communicate information about the hospitalâ€™s programs and services to the residents and businesses in their communities. They also elect Emersonâ€™s Board of Directors and Corporators at the annual meeting.
â€œWhile we rely on our Corporators to act as ambassadors for the hospital, we hope that members of our community also engage directly with them to connect to Emerson,â€ added Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson.
