Ginny Moore, GBAHC Board
Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics welcomes two new members to its Hospital Board.
Ginny Moore, a senior consultant in Quality Administration at Gundersen Health System, and Michelle Mueller, a special education teacher at Boscobel Elementary School, join nine other members who serve on the board.
The board, which includes six Gundersen representatives and five community members, sets mission, vision, policy and strategy, said Gundersen Boscobel CEO David Hartberg. It also reviews reports from the CEO and senior leaders, assesses the quality and safety of care and the engagement and retention of the medical staff and workforce, and sees that a successful business is being managed.
"They are to be a connection out to the communities we serve, and the world the entity works within, sharing where we are at and what we are doing, as well as to bring a voice back into the board room and to its leaders from within the circle of influence they have," Hartberg said.
Moore said she sought involvement on the board because she believes in quality healthcare close to home.
"The health and wellness of our families is key to our success as a happy and vibrant community," she said.
As a senior consultant at Gundersen in La Crosse, Moore facilitates system projects, including strategic planning and organizational improvements.
Moore earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, a Master of Science degree in educational administration from the University of Wisconsin Madison, a Master of Arts degree in servant leadership from Viterbo University, and is pursuing her PhD in educational leadership and policy analysis from the University of Wisconsin Madison.
Moore and her husband, Allen, live in Muscoda and have two grown children.
"Ginny will bring her role as a Gundersen Service Excellence leader and longtime resident of Muscoda, where Gundersen Boscobel has a clinic, to the dialogues and decisions made," Hartberg said.
Gundersen Boscobel is a valuable resource that provides local preventative, routine and emergency care to the community, Mueller said. Serving on the Hospital board allows her to connect to the community in a new way.
"I hope to bring experience and perspective to the board as a long-time community member, parent and teacher," she said. "Hopefully, as a group we can continue to support an organization that seeks to provide the best care and have a positive impact on the overall health and wellness of our community."
Michelle Mueller, GBAHC Board
Mueller works with fourth to sixth grade students who have a variety of disabilities. As part of her work, she helps assemble Individual Education Plans that include medical services, which Mueller said has shown the important connection between education and medical care.
She earned her bachelor's degree in Special Education from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and is pursuing an additional license at Viterbo University. Mueller lives in Boscobel with her husband, Shea, and their two young sons, Francis and Oscar.
"Michelle, as a young mother and superb teacher in the Boscobel schools, will bring those two valuable perspectives, as well as being a native of Boscobel, to the board room and discussions," Hartberg said.
