New ALMH board members appointed

[MAY 30, 2002]  New community volunteers took their places on the boards of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital during the hospital’s annual meeting on May 15. Guests attended the dinner that highlighted the challenges and advancements made by the hospital during the past year. The joint meeting of the governing boards of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation and Lincoln Health Services recognized retiring members and welcomed new board members.

Susan M. Harmon, M.D., medical staff president at ALMH, reported that the three new physicians who arrived last August have been very busy with patients. Kristen Green-Morrow, M.D. and Melissa Hardiek, M.D., with Lincoln Health Care Specialists, and Richard Bivin, M.D., with Family Medical Center, are Lincoln’s three newest physicians accepting new patients. Harmon reported that there continue to be many consulting physicians and specialists who routinely see patients in Lincoln.

The retiring ALMH board of directors chair, Mark Graue, recognized the efforts of the physicians, medical staff, volunteers and employees who work together as a team to provide a valuable service to the community. Although Graue will retire from the hospital board, he will remain on the board of directors of Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation.

Woody Hester, president and chief executive officer of ALMH, noted the challenges that the hospital has faced in the past year in regard to Medicaid reimbursement. "ALMH continues to overcome challenges and will thrive for another century to come," stated Hester.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital and its predecessor, St. John Evangelical Deaconess Hospital.

"Our community has always supported this hospital — even donating food in 1902, when there was not enough to feed patients," Hester said. "Today, you, our friends and neighbors, continue to support this organization with monetary gifts to help us purchase the latest in technology and equipment and to assist in providing the best in health-are facilities and services available."

Retiring directors from the Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation board are Marilyn J. Armbrust, Lauri F. Bates, Evelyn M. Madigan and Gerald A. Sampen.

Officers of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital board are William E. Marcotte, chair; William M. Hull, chair-elect; John D. Blackburn, secretary; and Thomas D. Kissel, treasurer. New directors are Thomas D. Seggelke, ALMH board; Steven D. Augenbaugh, ALHF board; and Kathleen K. Vipond, Lincoln Health Services, Inc. board.

Where do you go for the
goods and services you want?

In the know…

You finally discover where the best chai in town is and you’re ecstatic! Then you discover it’s been there a year or so and no one told you about it. You’re exasperated! Local businesses change hands, move, increase their stock or services, do all sorts of things you’d really like to know about, and somehow you don’t get in on it.

The cure:

LogOn Production’s Channel 15 has the show you’ve been waiting for — "Chamber Chat." It airs from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays. The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce hosts the weekly half-hour LIVE talk show.

"Chamber Chat" features updates on local business activity, community events, issues, and interviews with volunteers and leaders of special programs taking place in the community. There will also be opportunity for viewers to call in with live questions.

There are plans to occasionally film segments on location in local businesses to add to the perspective and content of the show.

The show will air several additional times each week, but Tuesday night will be the LIVE show. [Click here to hear it!]

Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bobbi Abbott thinks, "A focus on our GOOD NEWS will hopefully provide a domino effect in positive attitudes and opinions about our community."

Abbott invites, "If you have business activity, please e-mail to me any news about your place of business — expansions, new employees, new products or services, changes in location or management, etc."

Koehler receives Accredited Asset
Management Specialist designation

[JUNE 13, 2002]  Nick Koehler, a financial consultant with the local office of A.G. Edwards & Sons, has completed training for the title of Accredited Asset Management Specialist. This program is offered through the College for Financial Planning, the country’s oldest provider of financial planning education for more than 28 years.

"Financial consultants who are awarded the Accredited Asset Management Specialist title are not only prepared to identify opportunities in investments but also in such areas as insurance, tax savings, retirement and estate planning," said Phil Dehner, branch manager of the A.G. Edwards in Lincoln.

These specialists have in-depth knowledge of the financial planning process and an understanding that as clients gain wealth, they have more complex financial needs.

Koehler successfully completed 120 hours of training focused on subjects such as asset allocation, retirement planning and risk management. He also agreed to abide by a comprehensive code of ethics.

Koehler lives in Lincoln. He is recently engaged to Stephanie Maloney, also of Lincoln.
