Health Foundation Director Announces Retirement

January 25, 2018

McCook, Neb.—Terri Shipshock, Executive Director of Community Hospital Health Foundation announced her retirement at the foundation board meeting on Tuesday. She plans to end her 13-year career at the foundation’s helm in early June following the 30th John Mullen Pro-Am golf tournament.

Both Bill Burton, Foundation Chair and Troy Bruntz, Community Hospital President & CEO as well as a foundation board member, said they will be working with Terri in the next five months to smooth the transition to the next executive director. Following Terri’s announcement at the meeting, the board set up a search committee to begin the process for her replacement.

They expressed their gratefulness for Terri’s years of service and all she has accomplished as director. “In the time Terri has been here, Community Hospital Health Foundation has raised more than $6 million,” Burton said. This includes raising $1.8 million for the Rehabilitation Center, a half million for the Healing Garden and nearly $4 million for the Anderson Center for Radiation Oncology; as well as multiple gifts that provided grants over the years to Community Hospital for medical equipment and services.

“In addition, the foundation has funded and awarded thousands of dollars for healthcare scholarships” he said.

“Terri’s fundraising events have been of the highest caliber and excellence. We are fortunate to have responsible, hard-working individuals like Terri associated with the Community Hospital Health Foundation and Community Hospital,” he added.

“We are happy for Terri and her family, and that she has the opportunity to move into this phase of her life,” Bruntz said. “We wish her only the best.”

Terri says she has very mixed feelings about retiring. “I have enjoyed my years in McCook and am grateful to Community Hospital and the community for the professional and personal fulfillment I have enjoyed in my role as executive director.”
