Two new members have joined the Buffalo County Community Partners board of directors. Filling a spot in the healthcare organizations constituency, is Mike Schnieders, president of Good Samaritan Hospital.
“Kearney is very fortunate to have an organization like Buffalo County Community Partners working in the community. It provides the forum and a structure to work together with the aim of improving life in central Nebraska. The mission of Good Samaritan Hospital includes building healthier communities, and we already work closely with Community Partners to improve the health of area residents. As we move into the next era of health care, Good Samaritan’s goal is to keep people healthy. Together with Community Partners, we are already making progress toward that goal,” said Schnieders.
Also joining the board, and filling the civic groups, churches, and consumers spot, is Linda Muhlbach of the Kearney eFree Church.
When asked what she hoped to contribute to the board and its work, Muhlbach said, “For me, the faith-based community is a large part of the community as a whole, so I hope to bring that perspective to the board. The faith community is rich with human resources and people looking to serve.”
There is still one open spot on the board of directors, in the government constituency. If you are interested in building a healthier Buffalo County by serving on one of our committees, please contact email Denise Zwiener, or call 308-865-2280.
