Two new faces recently joined the roster of the Fayette County Memorial
Hospital (FCMH) Foundation board of directors. At its most recent meeting
Trevor Patton and Kim Pittser were elected to their first terms as part
of the 15 member board whose mission is to increase awareness of needs
and generate resources for projects at FCMH.
Patton is a native of the area and is a graduate of Washington Court House
City Schools where he now holds the title of Marketing & Communications
Director, while also serving in the 107TH Cavalry Regiment of the Ohio Army National Guard. He and his wife Michelle
reside in Washington Court House.
Pittser grew up in Franklin, Ohio, but her husband Rob and son Blake have
called Fayette County home for several years. Pittser has spent 20 years
at Miami Trace Local School District and was recently tapped to assume
the position of superintendent.
“We are so grateful to have Kim and Trevor on the board,” said
Shannon Jacobs, FCMH Foundation board president. “We also want to
thank Rob Herron, Ron Amore and Kathy Dean as they step down from the
board. We appreciate their service and know they will continue to support
us and our endeavors.” The Foundation is a not-for-profit fundraising
corporation and is different and separate from the hospital board of directors.
Last year the FCMH Foundation board invested over $130,000 in the hospital
through the purchase of equipment and early planning for the emergency
department renovation project. In 2020 so far, the foundation has invested
over $30,000 for equipment for EMS, the emergency room, surgery center
and specialty clinic.
