Sky Lakes board welcomes new members

Heidi Neel Biggs and Holly Montjoy, MD, are the newest members of the 10-member Sky Lakes Medical Center Board of Directors.

Biggs replaces retired bank executive Kermit Houser, who served on the board for 12 years and was the board’s Finance Committee Chairman for two years. Houser decided to not renew his term, which ended in December.

Members of the medical staff voted Montjoy as the new Chief of Staff-elect and as such she joins the board. Dwight Smith, MD, rotated up to replace John Pattee, MD, as the Chief of Staff after Pattee’s term expired last fall.

Biggs is the executive director of the Community Foundation of the Klamath Basin, and has worked in a number of policy-related positions in Oregon and Klamath Falls. She holds a degree in speech communications from Northwestern University, and a law degree from Willamette University.

Montjoy received her medical degree from Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University and is a 2013 graduate of the Cascades East Family Medicine Residency program; she currently is among the Cascades East faculty. She also is medical director at Klamath Hospice.

“The board is excited to have the vision and perspective that Heidi and Holly bring,” said Sky Lakes President and CEO Paul Stewart. “We are grateful for the years of service Kermit and Dr. Pattee provided, and we hope to build on the solid foundation they helped create.”

Other members of the Sky Lakes board of directors are:

John Bell, chairman Rod Wendt, vice chair

Douglas McInnis, DVM Clark Pederson

Jean Phillips Dwight Smith, MD

Paul Stewart Wendy Warren, MD
