Kingman Regional Medical Center announces the retirement of David French from the Kingman Healthcare Inc. (KHI), board of directors after 36 years of service.
French was originally elected to the Board of Directors of Kingman Hospital, Inc. in 1985 and was reelected in 1990, 1995, and 2000. During that tenure, he has served on multiple committees and served as treasurer from 1985-2009. In 2009 he was elected Chairman of the board.
In addition to his work with KHI, French also served as a director on the board of the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association. He currently sits on the American Hospital Association Regional Policy board.
“I believe healthcare is one of the most important facets of any community,” said French, “and though it is demanding, my work with KHI has been some of the most rewarding of my career.”
French was presented with a plaque to honor his time serving on the board.
As a local non-profit organization, KHI’s primary function is to oversee the operations of Kingman Regional Medical Center.
KHI’s Board of Directors consists of eleven elected board members along with KRMC’s Chief Executive Officer and Medical Chief of Staff.
Elected board members hold three-year terms, staggered so that no more than four directors are to be elected or re-elected each year. All elected board members are community-minded individuals who receive no compensation.
