Eugene J. Clerkin of Bedford, senior vice president of commercial real estate lending at First Trade Union Bank, is among 19 area residents who were recently elected to three-year terms as Corporators of Emerson Hospital. Clerkin is chair of the Bedford Community Preservation Committee, a Bedford Housing Authority commissioner and former president of the Bedford Housing Trust.
Emerson’s other Corporators from Bedford include Paul Bauer, Pamela Brown, Irma Carter, Paul Purchia, Mike Rosenberg, Robert Segal, and Julie McCay Turner.
“Emerson Hospital relies on its Corporators to be informed ambassadors for the hospital and to assist in Emerson’s outreach efforts in their communities,” said Ron Johnson, chairman of the Emerson Hospital Board of Directors. “Corporators are truly strategic partners of the organization. We are grateful that all of the Corporators will serve Emerson Hospital in this important way.”
Corporators represent the interests of the 25 communities served by Emerson Hospital. They become knowledgeable about Emerson’s mission and the services it provides through regular breakfast briefings, annual meetings and other activities. In turn, they communicate information about the hospital’s programs and services to the residents and businesses in their communities. They also elect Emerson’s Board of Directors and Corporators at the annual meeting.
“While we rely on our Corporators to act as ambassadors for the hospital, we hope that members of our community also engage directly with them to connect to Emerson,” added Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson.
