---- — The Hospital Foundation of Decatur County has announced the selection of Bryan Robbins as its new director. In his new position, Robbins is working to support the health care initiatives of, and develop funding for, Decatur County Memorial Hospital, Greensburg.

According to Cleo Duncan, HFDC board president, “We are so pleased to have Bryan join our hospital foundation and share his passion for our community and ultimately our hospital. He brings a wealth of not-for-profit experience and an appreciation for the role our hospital plays in the vitality of our county.”

Linda Simmons, DCMH president and CEO, commented, “Bryan has very capably and professionally demonstrated his ability to lead, collaborate and develop funding for unique projects. We look forward to him using those talents for the advancement of our organization.”

Robbins reported, “I look forward to working with the hospital foundation board and the hospital to help promote and expand DCMH services, while solidifying its position as a building block for the community’s development.”

Robbins has filled the vacancy left when David Fry was named DCMH vice president of operations. Fry held the position since 2005 and, despite the foundation being founded in 1992, was its first director.
