On July 23, the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital and Windemere Nursing and Rehabilitation Center board of trustees unanimously approved Rebecca Haag as its newest member.
“On behalf of the board, I would like to welcome Rebecca. Her years of experience in public health and community advocacy, paired with her drive for equity on Martha’s Vineyard will make her a wonderful addition to our board,” John Schaefer, chairman of the board, said in a press release.
“I look forward to working alongside and learning from Rebecca in the years to come,” Denise Schepici, President and CEO of the hospital, said in the release. “I have no doubt that she will bring new perspectives and insight to our organization.”
