|Eleanor and Larry Collins|
Larry served on the Board for 17 years starting in 1996 with one year off for good behavior. He was the board chair for 10 of those years and treasurer since 2010. Larry also is active in many other organizations in the community. This includes River Town/Forest Heights HUD Board in which he has served 16 years and counting.
St. Croix Valley Health Care Foundation recognized Larry with the Health Care Advocate Award in 2009. In 2011, Wisconsin Hospital Assocation recognized Larry with the annual WHA Trustee Award.
Larry Collins is indicative of what you would hope for in a Trustee. Larry is committed to the patients and families we serve, the mission and vision of the organization, valued representative in the community, and someone who can bring insight and guidance when needed. For me, Larry was an excellent sounding board who brought perspective on the many challenges that we face from time to time.
