Adena Health Appoints New Chair Amidst Board Changes and Additions

Adena Health in Chillicothe has appointed Steve Hirsch as its new chair, succeeding Jennifer McKell. McKell will remain on the board as past chair, with Bob French serving as vice chair, Brian Ream as secretary, and Kevin Shoemaker as treasurer. The board has also welcomed three new members: Penny Dehner representing First Presbyterian Church, Jim Crabtree representing Trinity United Methodist Church, and Sean Kallner representing Tabernacle Baptist Church.

Dehner is a retired behavioral health administrator with experience at the Paint Valley ADAMH Board. Crabtree brings vast experience in education, marketing, and telecommunications management. Kallner has over 20 years of experience in finance, education, and senior leadership roles. The new members have replaced Bart Henshaw, Larry Phillips, and Joe Watson, who served the board for the maximum allowed terms.

Adena Health is governed by a 15-member board consisting of representatives from the founding churches, at-large members, and medical staff. The board members contribute diverse expertise and perspectives to address the needs of the community. Adena Health offers a wide range of services that can be found on their website or social media platforms.

The newly appointed chair Hirsch will lead the board in ensuring that Adena Health continues to provide high-quality healthcare services to its patients in Chillicothe and surrounding areas. With his extensive experience in healthcare administration and management, Hirsch will help guide the organization through any challenges it may face in the future.

McKell’s continued presence on the board as past chair will be instrumental in providing guidance to Hirsch and ensuring a smooth transition during this period of change.

French’s role as vice chair will be critical in supporting Hirsch’s leadership efforts while Ream’s role as secretary will ensure that all meetings are conducted efficiently and effectively.

Shoemaker’s position as treasurer will be crucial in managing Adena Health’s finances and ensuring that it remains financially stable.

The addition of three new members to the board brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to address various issues affecting Adena Health’s operations.

Dehner’s background in behavioral health administration will bring valuable insights into Adena Health’s patient care services while Crabtree’s experience in marketing and telecommunications management will help enhance communication between patients
