In Memoriam – Jim Gunderson
It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Emeritus Board member Jim Gunderson passed away on August 18, 2021.
Jim served on the Bronson Healthcare Group Board of Directors from 1991-2016. He served as the Chairperson of the Board from 1999 to 2004 and was a member of virtually all Board Committees during his tenure including Audit and Compliance, Executive, Finance, and the Facilities and Technology Committee. Jim dedicated countless hours of service to Bronson, having participated in such significant milestones as hiring a new CEO in 1996, building a new hospital that would serve future generations in the community, expanding Bronson’s reach in the region by developing new partnerships in Van Buren and Calhoun counties, and being a strong advocate for a locally governed health system in southwest Michigan.
Jim will be greatly missed and will always be remembered for the profound impact he had on Bronson and our community.
