A recent letter to the editor about the Hospital Board expressed concern about having members from outside the service area. It is true that due to recent By-Law changes we could have up to two of the eleven board members reside outside the area in the future. Currently, we have one member who resides in Anchorage. He was a long time resident of the Peninsula who served on both the Homer Hospital and the Central Peninsula Hospital Boards. When he was transferred to Anchorage we asked him to consider staying on the Board for a time because of his experience and expertise.
