"I am pleased that Roberta was selected for this prestigious educational session and proud that Fitzgibbon Hospital will be represented at this summit," said Ron Ott, president and CEO of Fitzgibbon. "As a rural provider of healthcare, it is important that decision-makers shaping the future of our system get input from those of us in the Midwest and in rural locations. I am confident she will bring back creative ideas that Fitzgibbon will put to good use as we strategically plan to ensure people in Saline County and the surrounding area have access to quality health care."
