Conroe, Texas, January 24, 2017…. Four members of the Montgomery County Hospital District’s board were sworn in at the first board meeting for 2017. The November elections returned three incumbents to the board of the Montgomery County Hospital District Board along with a new face who replaced retiring board chairman Harold Posey. Posey was appointed to the district’s board on November 1, 2005 to fill the unexpired Commissioner Precinct 2 term representing the Magnolia area.

The three incumbents returned to the district’s board by Montgomery County voters included Sandy Wagner, Commissioner Precinct 1 member and board secretary. Ms. Wagner stated she was excited to serve on the board another term. “Our organization is special and I am proud to be a part of it. We have one of the best EMS’ in the State and the Country. I am very much involved in the indigent care (HCAP) program and I also serve as the MCHD representative to the Public Health Board. To be able to continue serving with these programs is an honor.”

In looking forward to her new term, Ms. Wagner stated, “I look forward to continuing with the work at MCHD that I have been doing. Thanks to the people who voted for me. I have always tried to be responsible to them for the tax dollars they have paid. MCHD spends money wisely and the services provided are excellent! The challenges that are facing MCHD are large and I am grateful to be part of the continued successes.”

Re-elected to continue in his At-Large Position #1, MCHD Board Vice Chairman Mark Cole says his next term will focus on the board’s “traditional priorities of excellence in service we offer to the citizens of Montgomery County, with the least possible burden to the taxpayer.”

Mr. Cole stated, “I love Montgomery County and its hard-working, generous and caring people. They deserve a Hospital District which provides excellent services but without burdening the taxpayer. We are accomplishing that at MCHD, though we are always striving for improvement. I am eager to
