Ministry Good Samaritan welcomes new Foundation director
Ministry Health Care is pleased to welcome Jane Bentz as the new Director of the Foundation and Community Outreach at Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center, Merrill.
Bentz joins Ministry Good Samaritan after spending nearly five years as coordinator of the Flambeau Hospital Foundation, Park Falls. Flambeau Hospital is jointly sponsored by Ministry Health Care. Bentz joined Flambeau after seven years as executive director of the Park Falls Area Chamber of Commerce.
“I am excited to join Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center and appreciate its role as a leader in the Merrill community,” said Bentz. “This position offers a unique opportunity to support the hospital and its efforts to improve the health and well-being of everyone, especially the poor in our community.”
In collaboration with Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center, the Foundation identifies health needs, and through philanthropy, sponsors equipment, programs and services to support the hospital. It also partners with others to help shape the quality and availability of health care services for the Merrill community.
“Jane will be a welcome addition to our staff in Merrill,” said Ministry Good Samaritan President Mary Krueger. “Her strong background in marketing, community relations, grant writing and event management will provide an immediate impact as we work to grow the long-standing support our Foundation has provided to our facility.”
