MARBLETON – Sublette County Hospital District (SCHD) Trustee Wendy Boman will not seek reelection on the board of trustees and attended her last meeting on Oct. 26.

Boman served for six years on both the Sublette County Rural Health Care District (RHCD) and SCHD boards of trustees.

SCHD Board Chairwoman Tonia Hoffman thanked Boman for her role in bringing the hospital district and critical access hospital to fruition and work on the SCHD’s quality committee.

“We will miss you immensely,” Hoffman added.

SCHD administrator Dave Doorn expressed gratitude to Boman for providing leadership as a trustee on the SCHD and RHCD boards.

Dr. David Burnett, SCHD medical director, praised Boman for the six years she gave to the community.

Boman and her fellow trustees “took on a big project in a very admirable way,” Burnett said.

Additional gratitude came from Mike Hunsaker, chief operating officer for the SCHD and its management partner, Star Valley Health.

“We wouldn’t be where we are today with out you and the board guiding us and leading us,” he said. “We couldn’t ask for better partners.”

Boman described the past six years as a “rollercoaster ride” with difficult transitions and “bumps in the road.”

“We are in such a good place now,” she said.

Boman credited SCHD providers and staff for their work in making the hospital project a reality. She singled out Doorn for “walking into a hornets nest” and bringing about positive change.

Boman also thanked Dr. Burnett, Kari DeWitt, SCHD public relations director and grant writer, Dawn Walker, administrator at the Sublette Center, and her colleagues on the board.

Each trustee – Dave Bell, Kenda Tanner and Jamison Ziegler – thanked Boman for her service.
