Board of Trustees of Sauk County Health Care Center
As Chair of the Board of Trustees of Sauk County Health Care Center, Professor Mary Ellen Murray brings both financial expertise and quality of care expertise. The Health Care Center provides long term care to both private pay patients and patients receiving Medicaid. This is an important service to the region because many facilities are reluctant to accept Medicaid payments. Currently, Professor Murray is leading a study to make a decision regarding the construction of an assisted living facility, adding to the continuum of care. Her skills as a researcher have enabled her to lead an evidenced-base approach to this decision making.
