No contest for two hospital board members

The two members of El Camino Hospital's board of directors whose terms expire in December face no challengers in the November election, and will retake their seats on the board for a four-year term.

Dr. Patricia Einarson was appointed on May 12 to replace former board Mark O'Connor, who resigned earlier this year. This will be her first full term on the board.

Einarson currently works as a child, adolescent and eating disorders specialist in Mountain View, and has a background in business administration and high-tech. She hopes her background in technology will prove to be an asset to the hospital as it moves into the 21st century, she said.

David Reeder was first appointed to the board in 1999. He was elected in 2002 and has since served two consecutive full terms. He is a business operations manager at Oracle and served two terms on the Los Altos City Council before coming to El Camino.

Reeder said the board's immediate concern is addressing the hospital's financial situation, and the long-term focus is to continue to improve the quality of care the hospital provides.

The terms of board members Wesley Alles, Uwe Kladde and John Zoglin expire in 2012.

If the current board is kept in place then no changes will take place at the hospital! They will keep the current leadership in office! This is really bad for the taxpayers of Mountain View District and the hospital!
