Foundation Trustees

The BHS Foundation Board is comprised of community business leaders from a variety of professions. Together, they lead the foundation toward a future of caring and increased community impact. The diversity of the board members brings a wealth of experience to this volunteer board and helps to guide the Foundation in its continued success. The BHS Foundation serves as the foundation of our charitable endeavors throughout Independence Health System/Butler Memorial Hospital, improving technology and equipment in the hospital, and improving our ability to provide our community with health-related resources. The diversity of our trustees - experience, education, and career histories is important to us, ensuring a comprehensive view of the needs of our community and representing ongoing endeavors to serve our patients with excellence in a state-of-the-art setting.
