Hastings Has Home On Otsego Lake
COOPERTOWN – The Bassett Healthcare Network Board of Directors elected Douglas Hastings, retired chairman of a Washington D.C. law firm specializing in health-care law, as its new chairman during the annual meeting Tuesday in Cooperstown, the hospital system announced today.
Hastings succeeds Ralph H. Meyer, former Guthrie Health System CEO, who has completed his term as chair, but will remain on the network board.
Hastings, a current member of the board and chair of the quality oversight committee, is chair emeritus of the national law firm Epstein Becker Green. He and his wife, Ginny, have a home on Otsego Lake.
Three other board members were re-elected to three-year terms: Jane Forbes Clark of Cooperstown, Kevin Moore of Weston, Conn., and John Bullis of Little Falls.
“I am honored to serve as a steward of this vitally important organization,” Hastings said on his selection, “and look forward to working with my fellow board members and all of our over 4,600 dedicated clinical and administrative personnel to advance the health of our communities together.”
The Bassett Healthcare Network board oversees an integrated health care system that provides care and services to people living in an eight-county region covering 5,600 square miles from its Cooperstown headquarters.
