HANCOCK – The Portage Health Board of Directors has elected two new directors for four-year terms ending in 2015.

Jay D. Martineau  Dr. Dawn Nulf

Jay D. Martineau and Dr. Dawn Nulf commenced their service on the board on July 1. Dr. Bruce Trusock was also reelected to serve until 2015.

“The board sets the strategic direction and establishes policies to meet our mission and vision for the future,” said Jim Bogan, president and CEO. “Electing Dr. Nulf and Jay Martineau will continue our tradition of having a board which is diverse and provides the expertise necessary to govern a healthcare organization in today’s world.”

Martineau joins the board after spending his entire professional career in construction, including co-owning Martineau & Morris Contracting.

“I want to make Portage Health better in every aspect every day,” said Martineau, who is still active in the regional construction industry, though he has sold his portion of M&M. “I have had the opportunity to see many cutting-edge hospitals being designed and built throughout the Midwest. I bring a new viewpoint and experience to Portage Health.”

Dr. Nulf has been with Portage Health for more than a decade, serving in the emergency department.

“I felt that I could contribute more to the organization with a different level of involvement,” said Nulf. “I have a deep respect and affection for both the community and for Portage Health, and my enthusiasm will help drive Portage Health through the coming changes in healthcare.”
