The St. John’s Health Board of Trustees is accepting written expressions
of interest for the position of Trustee of Teton County Hospital District,
dba St. John’s Health. The vacancy was created upon the resignation
of Linda Aurelio.
In her eight years working with St. John’s Health, Aurelio served
in several key roles, including board advisor, secretary of the Board
of Trustees, and vice chair of the St. John’s Health Foundation.
She cited personal reasons for her departure, which she announced to the
Board Chair Cynthia Hogan on Friday, May 15. "Serving on the Board
allowed me the opportunity to bring both my healthcare background and
passion for the position to serve the Jackson community to the best of
my ability,” stated Aurelio. “I wish to thank the community
of Jackson for their vote of confidence to elect me to the St. John’s
Health Board of Trustees.”
“Linda has been a strong supporter and friend of St. John’s
Health and St. John’s Health Foundation,” said Hogan. “She
has made invaluable contributions to many important board discussions
and St. John’s overall positive trajectory, including her leadership
of the Sage Living project as co-chair of the Living Center Task Force.”
Following Wyoming state statute, St. John’s Health Trustees will
appoint a candidate to fill the board vacancy. The appointment is effective
July 2020 through the November 2020 Teton County general election. At
that time, the individual holding the seat will need to be selected by
voters to complete the remainder of Aurelio’s term, which expires in 2022.
Resumes should be sent via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via mail to Karen Connelly, Communications Officer, St. John’s
Health, P.O. Box 428, Jackson, WY 83001. Applications must be received
by Monday, June 22. Selected candidates will be asked to complete a brief
questionnaire. Trustee interviews with final candidates will be held on
June 29 in meetings open to the public. The Board of Trustees expects
to fill the vacancy at its regular monthly public meeting later that day.
According to state statute, except for employees of St. John’s Health,
any qualified elector resident in Teton County, WY (which comprises the
hospital district) is eligible to serve.
