Beverly “Bev” Preussner has been a valued member of our community for years. She began her nursing journey in September of 1957 when she graduated from St. Luke’s School of Nursing. Following graduation, Bev began her career at Regional Medical Center (at the time known as Delaware County Memorial Hospital). Throughout the years, she held many different roles and contributed immensely to our local healthcare system. Bev retired in November of 2000, but despite her retire
ment, she continued to be an advocate and strong supporter of Regional Medical Center.
RMC’s Board of Trustees is the governing body of our local not-for-profit hospital and is ultimately responsible for developing and reviewing the hospital’s overall mission. A Trustee is someone the community entrusts to oversee the hospital’s best interests. With Bev’s devotion to our community, local healthcare system and her dedicated nursing background, she was a perfect candidate for the RMC Board of Trustees. In 2008, Bev began serving on the RMC Governing Board of Trustees.
Fast forward to today, October 6, 2020, Bev is still very active in our community. She continues to serve on the RMC Governing Board of Trustees and was recently honored as Trustee of the Year. This recognition signifies how Bev excels in education and leadership and acknowledges her impactful vision for quality healthcare in the communities we serve.
“When I retired in 2000, I really missed working in the nursing field. Being on the [RMC] Board was a very nice way to keep a connection to nursing and the hospital,” shared Bev Preussner after accepting the 2020 Trustee of the Year award. “I’m very proud to be on the RMC Board of Trustees. I feel we are very fortunate to have excellence in healthcare, close to home.”
On behalf of everyone at RMC and the communities we serve, thank you to Bev for all she has done in years past and continues to do for our local healthcare system.
