Colleen Misener, Honorary Lifetime Board Member, SGH Foundation
Quality health care helps attract new industry and physicians
“Whether it’s being born or dying—or something in between—it’s so important to have proper healthcare for all of us,” says Colleen Misener, a long term Hospital and Foundation Board member during the 1990s.
“It’s also essential for the whole municipality, because that’s one thing industry looks at when they’re thinking of relocating,” she says. “Also, if we’re going to attract physicians and get the high quality care we want, we have to have the best equipment and latest technology.”
As one of only two people to be recognized for their service to the Foundation as an “honorary lifetime member,” Colleen was a driving force behind the creation of the Stratford General Hospital Foundation and a co-chair of the original CT Scanner Campaign.
“When we first started out, I thought, oh my gosh, what a mountain we have to climb!” says Colleen. “But we’ve reached the summit so often that I no longer get discouraged.”
