Sanford Health amp MeritCare Hires Dave Anderson in Public Affairs
We are very pleased to announce that Dave Anderson has joined the new Sanford Health & MeritCare team in Public Affairs. For the past decade, Dave has led the private sector effort in the revitalization of Downtown Fargo and Moorhead as president and CEO of the Downtown Community Partnership. In that effort he has grown deep roots in the community and has already had a long association with our Fargo-based team.
Dave is a great addition to the team and we feel fortunate to have people that are well known and trusted to represent us. Evelyn Quigley, senior vice president, who leads the mission and community benefit functions at MeritCare will also work closely with the Office of Public Affairs. We intend to fill a position of a women's services representative to work with the team in the coming year. That will establish the Public Affairs department to its full compliment as planned during the merger talks.
In Dave, we find someone who is well known to our leadership and to the community, and who has worked for 10 years alongside Dr. Roger Gilbertson, our president emeritus, throughout Downtown's remarkable renaissance. Additionally, Dave quickly demonstrated his devotion to his community as he represented the Downtown community during our early public gatherings in Fargo. Dave's character, his sensitivity for his community and his long record of achievement will serve him and us well. We welcome Dave and his family to ours at Sanford Health & MeritCare.
