The Adena Health board of trustees has appointed Steve Hirsch as its new chair, taking over from Jennifer McKell. Hirsch, whose family owns Hirsch Fruit Farm in Chillicothe, will lead the board alongside vice chair Bob French, secretary Brian Ream, and treasurer Kevin Shoemaker. McKell will continue to serve on the board as past chair.

The leadership changes were accompanied by the addition of three new members to the board. Penny Dehner, Jim Crabtree, and Sean Kallner have joined representing First Presbyterian Church, Trinity United Methodist Church, and Tabernacle Baptist Church respectively. Dehner brings years of experience in behavioral health administration while Crabtree has a background in education, marketing and telecommunications management. Kallner’s diverse background includes financial planning, school administration and business management.

These new members have filled the seats previously held by Bart Henshaw, Larry Phillips and Joe Watson who served their maximum number of terms on the board. Adena Health has honored the departing members with a donation to the Adena Health Foundation fund of their choice.

Adena Health’s board comprises 15 members representing the founding churches of the organization, at-large members and medical staff members from the health system. The diverse range of expertise and perspectives among these individuals enable them to address effectively the needs of communities served by Adena Healthcare System.
