The Chester River Hospital Center Board of Directors has elected two new members and expanded the Board by adding the President of the Hospital's Foundation as a voting member.

Maryland M. Massey and Charles D. "Chip" MacLeod were elected at the Hospital's Annual Meeting of the Board in November and approved by the Chester River Health System Board at its Annual Meeting in December.

Mrs. Massey is a registered nurse who retired from the Kent County Health Department as Deputy Health Officer last year; she continues to work there part-time as a consultant. She also operates Maryland's Herb Basket and serves as a Millington Town Councilwoman. She worked at Chester River Hospital Center from 1960 to1973, including six years as Director of Nursing.

Also elected to the Board was Mr. MacLeod, the former Kent County Administrator who recently received his law degree and is now establishing a career as an attorney with Funk & Bolton, P.A. where he concentrates in local government law and public finance. He has been actively involved in several organizations including the Local Government Insurance Trust, the Maryland Association of County Administrative Officers and the Kent County and the Maryland State Bar Associations.

The two new members replaced retiring board members, Clarence A. Hawkins and Dr. Michael M. Forney.

C. Daniel Saunders is the current president of the Foundation who will begin serving on the Board. The Foundation Board guides the Hospital’s fund-raising efforts.

The Hospital's Board of Directors includes fourteen volunteer community representatives and the presidents of the Auxiliary, the Medical Staff and the Foundation.
