Bernard will continue to serve as the Past President on the Foundation Board of Trustees.

“We could not be more grateful for Dick’s time and dedication to improving healthcare in our communities,” said Gary Paxson. “His support during his time as WRHS Foundation President has led to positive outcomes for many people, whether they are employees of WRHS, patients of WRHS, or students dreaming of becoming a nurse.”

During his 20 years of service, the WRHS Foundation raised approximately $20 million to benefit services, scholarships, and new technology.

“I am proud that I was able to serve our local healthcare facility through the WRHS Foundation,” said Bernard. “The WRHS Foundation’s impact could not be what it is without the WRHS Board of Trustees, employee giving, the Auxiliary, our local business contributions, and many individuals in our communities.”
