Health center board seeks Morgan Co. rep

June 08, 2008|By TRISH RUDDER

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Morgan County Commission voted unanimously Friday to request that the Tri-State Community Health Center appoint a Morgan County resident to its board of directors.

Commission President Glen R. Stotler said Friday that the commission will send a letter to the health center and will offer recommendations of people to serve on the board.

The Tri-State Community Health Center is a federally funded medical clinic that serves residents in Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It has clinics in Hancock, Cumberland, Md. and McConnellsburg, Pa.

West Virginia has not been represented on the board for more than 18 months, said John H. Borg, the former Morgan County representative.

Borg, president of War Memorial Hospital in Berkeley Springs, said he was surprised that his position was not filled after he resigned.

Borg said he recently was asked by the health center to rejoin the board, but he has not made a decision.

Commissioner Brenda J. Hutchinson said she wants a Morgan County resident on the board because Borg resides in Virginia.

Borg said about one-third of the patients at the health center's Hancock facility come from Morgan County.
