CHCC board re-elects Ogumoro as chair

LAURI Ogumoro on Wednesday was re-elected chairwoman of the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation board of trustees, while newly appointed member Edward Deleon Guerrero was elected vice chair.

The CHCC board met on Wednesday to, among other agenda items, elect its officers.

After the board discussed and approved the credentials and privileges of CHCC medical staff, Ogumoro opened the floor for the nomination of chairman and vice chairman.

Polly Masga then nominated Ogumoro as chairwoman and Deleon Guerrero as vice chairman.

Ogumoro and Deleon Guerrero accepted the nominations, and were unanimously elected by the board.

In a brief statement, CHCC legal counsel Nancy Gottfried said they are grateful to the board chair. “Being chair is a lot of work. It is a true commitment to the community,” she added.

She also commended Ogumoro’s leadership, saying: “Things have been going very well and very smoothly. There is a lot of validity in continuity.”

Ogumoro said the board elects its officers every two years. “So this is the two-year mark for our board,” she added.

Two years ago, the trustees were Ogumoro, Dave Rosario, William Cing of Tinian, Leticia Reyes, and Dr. Larry Hocog of Rota. Except for Ogumoro, they have all resigned from the board.

The new trustees are Polly Masga, Corrine Hofschneider of Tinian, and Edward Deleon Guerrero. Rota’s seat on the board remains vacant.

The people can expect continuity from the board as it serves the community, Ogumoro said.

“We will continue to work for the healthcare corporation, but we will ultimately do what is right for the community,” she added.
