Meet Our Foundation Board Members
Dave Drey, Chair
"I agreed to serve on the BVRMC Foundation Board because of the importance of having such a great facility in our community. BVRMC provides Buena Vista and the surrounding counties with excellent and state of the art Medical care & services which is quite obvious to all of us. In addition to these services BVRMC also provides so much to these communities via the employment of 100's of personnel. These employees not only provide excellent care to the patients and facilities but also are active throughout their communities volunteering their time, talent and services to help others. I feel by doing my part on the Foundation Board is one way I can show my appreciation for all these people do for others."
Tara Hach, Secretary/Treasurer
