“This ordinance, dated November 1, 1895, stated that the Mayor, with the approval of the City Council, appoint a board of nine women directors chosen from the citizens at large, which would be authorized to accept the donations of money and real or personal property in the name of the hospital.”
Some things have changed since that original charter written 120 years ago creating the first board of directors for KSB Hospital. Today’s board is comprised of four women and seven men.
And we still accept the donations of money and real or personal property!
Here are the dedicated men and women that serve on KSB Hospital’s board of directors along with the year they joined the board:
Joan Melzer, Farmer from Dixon, 1987
Tom Suits, Attorney from Polo, 1995
Rick Curia, Business Owner from Dixon, 2005
