The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly named reappointed two Bartlett Regional Hospital board members and one new member at a meeting last week.
Juneau’s governing body reappointed incumbents Mary Borthwick and Lauree Morton and also appointed new applicant Mark Johnson to fill the three open seats on the Bartlett Regional Hospital Board.
Johnson took over outgoing board member Reed Reynolds’s seat after Reynolds third term on the board. Hospital board members are only allowed to server three terms.
Johnson joins the board after working for the Alaska Division of Public Health for more than 25 years from 1979 to 2004. His two longest-standing supervisions were the statewide EMS and Trauma System Development programs and injury prevention.
Johnson has also served on committees for the CDC, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Health Resources and Services Administration.
In his application, Johnson, currently a member of the Juneau-Douglas High School Site Council, said he is applying to “ensure BRH is the best possible hospital appropriate for this community and service area.
Johnson’s term begins Jan. 1 of next year and expire Dec. 31, 2016, the same as Borthwick and Morton.
