“I hope to be a voice for the public on the decision making body of the Hospital in order to assist it in responding to the challenges of the health and wellness needs of our community with staff, facilities and programs that meet our current and future needs with highest quality, professionalism and affordability. I also hope to assist the Board in meeting the challenges of the delivery of health care and wellness services in the post Affordable Health Care Act environment,” said Levin.
