“I am extremely grateful for Mr. Baumgartner’s and Mr. Van Orden’s dedicated service to Bingham Healthcare and the leadership they provided,” said Erickson. “They were important members who offered valuable oversight on important issues and thoughtful consideration of proposed changes to keep Bingham growing. They are both thoughtful and generous leaders who contributed immeasurably to their roles, and continues to make a lasting contribution to Bingham and our community.”
