Boone County Health Center announced this week that Tony Kurtenbach will be the new Board of Trustees member replacing Jody Stodola-Choat upon completion of her term at the end of June. Stodola-Choat has been on the hospital board for 12 years.
“It has been a privilege to serve on the Boone County Health Center Board and to work with so many people who are dedicated to improving the health of our communities. We are fortunate to have exceptional health care at the hospital and surrounding clinics in our rural area,” said Stodola-Choat.
The board meets monthly to guide operations at Boone County Health Center and is responsible for helping to set the vision and mission of the health center.
Kurtenbach and his wife Alida have two daughters and make their home outside St. Edward. A graduate of Lindsay Holy Family, Kurtenbach earned a degree in business administration from Nebraska Wesleyan University. He works for Bayer Crop Science and is a member of the Boone County Development Agency, St. Edward Development Company, the local non-profit Farm 4A Cure, Knights of Columbus and St. Edward Catholic Church. In his spare time, Kurtenbach enjoys spending time with family, taking his girls to their activities and helping on the family farm operation.
His term will begin July 1.
