Hospital board member stepping down
El Camino Hospital announced last week that longtime board member Mark O'Connor — who has served on the hospital board since 1994, and as chairperson from 2003 to 2005 — is resigning from his tenured position for personal reasons.
"Mark's tenure on the board has spanned many significant events in El Camino Hospital's history," said Wesley Alles, current board chair, in a hospital press release. He said O'Connor "has had tremendous impact over these past 16 years on the hospital, its patients and the community."
O'Connor has also served on the El Camino Hospital Foundation Board of Directors and other health-related boards and groups. He is a physician's assistant who has volunteered at El Camino's RotaCare Free Clinic.
The district board will appoint a replacement on April 20 at a special meeting. Those interested in filling the vacant position must be registered voters in the El Camino Hospital District.
The next regular board meeting is Wednesday, March 10 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the ground floor meeting room of El Camino Hospital, 2500 Grant Road, Mountain View.
Those wishing to apply for the vacant hospital board position must send a cover letter and resume no later than April 1 at 5 p.m. to:
Wesley F. Alles, Chairperson of the Board
