March 17, 2011 - Memorial Health Foundation Welcomes New Trustees
The Memorial Health Foundation recently welcomed three new members to its board of trustees. Nicole Coil, Fred Hunter, and Matthew Macatol, M.D. began service with the foundation in February.
Nicole Coil, attorney, is the immediate past president of the Marietta Welfare League and an active parent in the Marietta City school district. Her seat on the foundation board is part of a long time partnership between Memorial Health Foundation and the Welfare League.
Fred Hunter, retired GE/Borg Warner executive, has served on both the Selby and Marietta Memorial Hospitals’ boards for nearly a decade. He is a graduate of Marietta College and currently serves as a director of Settlers Bank and the Colony Theater.
Dr. Matt Macatol is a board certified pathologist for the Memorial Health System and the current surgery department chair. He received his medical training at Northeastern Ohio University’s College of Medicine and the University of Michigan Medical Center.
“This is an exciting and challenging time for the Foundation,” says Memorial Health Foundation Chair Larry Hawn. “This group of new trustees brings a nice variety of expertise to the table. Their connections to the community and the medical field will be extremely valuable as we work to encourage our community to invest in the future of health care.”
Wendy Wharff, foundation executive director, adds that these members bring with them a sincere dedication to the community, “The Foundation was established in 1981 by a group of community members that knew quality health care was vital to the future of our community. We’re very fortunate to have a group of local leaders who share this same vision after 30 years.”
