Bradford Hospital Foundation welcomes new board members

Posted on: 08/26/2019

The Bradford Hospital Foundation recently welcomed four new members to its board of directors.

Newest to the board are Darlene Schenfield Baugh, Dr. Nancy Fuhrman, Steve Hopkins and Stanley Pecora, Jr.

Baugh recently returned to the area. She owned and managed Bradford Optical from 1974-1981 and served on the American Heart Association and Cancer Society boards while in Bradford. She moved to Texas in 1981, where she owned Eye Temps and also worked as an ophthalmology surgical assistant. In 1989, she moved to Washington, D.C., continuing her work in ophthalmology before her retirement in 1992.

Fuhrman has been a chiropractor since earning a doctorate in 1980. She moved to Bradford in 1988 and opened Fuhrman Chiropractic Center. She has been an active member of BRMC’s Community Relations Committee for many years. She is also a member of the Kiwanis Club of Bradford.

Hopkins, a Bradford resident for 28 years, began his career at Shults Auto in 1986, as a service advisor, where he currently serves as general manager. He has supported Bradford Hospital Foundation for many years including developing special events.

Pecora has practiced law in Bradford for 55 years. He has served on the Bradford Hospital Foundation’s Planned Giving Committee for 20 years.

“The new board members have shown longstanding dedication to BRMC, each in their own way. Their variety of expertise will provide a tremendous benefit to the board, to the hospital and the community,” William Pantuso, board chairman, BH Foundation, said.

“As the Bradford Hospital Foundation celebrates its 30th year, I am pleased to welcome the new board members as we transition through the challenges faced in rural healthcare settings today. Each new board member brings their own brand of talent and we are honored to have their board service and commitment,” said Francie Ambuske, executive director, BH Foundation.
