CRMC Board Of Trustees Honors Service Of Allen Ray

Cookeville Regional’s Board of Trustees honored long-serving member Allen Ray Thursday night.

Ray has been on the board since July 2015, also serving as its chairman. Attorney Danny Rader presented a resolution thanking Ray for his service.

“I have particularly taken to heart the lesson you’ve taught about the importance of considering CRMC a provider of community healthcare services to the people and not just a business to run,” Rader said. “And that is an important lesson that I hope we all keep in mind. It has been my personal pleasure working with you.”

CEO Paul Korth said on behalf of the administrative team, they were pleased and proud of the work Ray had done. He said during Ray’s seven years on the board, the hospital had seen difficult times and even things it never expected. Korth said Ray never missed a beat on the main focus of the hospital: taking care of the patients.

“Allen I had the unique pleasure of following you when you came on the board and I can’t tell you how glad I am that happened,” Chairman Kevin Carter said. “Becuase it gave me an opportunity to watch you and the way you conducted the business as a board member and the way you conducted the business of the hsopital. And although I’m sure I didn’t do it justice, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you bring to this room, to this table. If there was anything I could do to extend your term, I would do it.”
