Dale Hoisington, Treasurer

I was born and raised in Spokane, graduated from Gonzaga University in 1972, and then moved to Seattle.  My career was in sales and marketing with Procter & Gamble, 7UP Company, and PepsiCo. I built a house in Manson in 1999 with plans of retiring to the area, which I did in 2006. I enjoy giving back to the community in which I live and I cannot think of a better cause than health care and education, both of which I find serving on the LCCHF board.

Linda Parker, Secretary

I enjoy serving on the Foundation Board.  I was involved in the Seattle area with a Hospital Board and a volunteer for many years. Our Foundation Board serves our community in many ways.  I have been especially involved with our Scholarship program which benefits College students, and our continuing education programs that benefits employees in the Health Care field in our Hospital and Clinics. I have been a resident since 2000 and a Board Member since 2002.

Agustin Benegas, Director

I am a longtime resident of Chelan, born and raised. Since April 2004, I have worked at Chelan Hospital (Lake Chelan Health), starting in the Health Information Management Services Department and later transitioning into roles in Quality and Community Wellness. Currently, I serve as the Communications Manager and Public Information Officer (PIO) for Lake Chelan Health and serve as a Spanish interpreter/translator.

Helping advocate for a new hospital and seeing it come to fruition, after several failed attempts, has been one of the biggest highlights of my career. Additionally, working through a world pandemic has been a significant experience.

I have a passion for community health and am dedicated to initiatives that support the health and wellness of both youth and adults living in the Lake Chelan Valley. It is a pleasure to serve on the foundation and work with the Guilds (Guild B and Y) to improve and support healthcare needs for the hospital and the community it serves.

Susan Fisher – Director

I was born in Seattle but came to Chelan in 1952. I graduated from Chelan in 1961. I went to the Deaconess School of Nursing in Wenatchee and graduated in 1964. I worked in the original Chelan Hospital as well as Regency Manor. I enjoy putting puzzles together and walking on the Manson Highway picking up litter.

Aurora Flores, Director

Health and wellness for our community as well as professional development for the Lake Chelan Hospital staff are two reasons why I serve on this Foundation. I also serve on the Manson School Board, the Professional Educators Standard Board, and am currently Vice-President of the Washington State School Directors Association.  I have four children; Gabriel, AnnMarie, Jaime and Valerie, six grandchildren and have been married to my husband, Balentin, for 46 years.

Judy Steele, Director

I’m a lifelong resident of the Lake Chelan Valley and a committed volunteer to my community.  I’m a founding board member for the Foundation since 1981.  In addition to serving as Foundation President, I’ve been a President of Chelan Soroptimist Club, the only woman ever to hold the position of Commodore for the Lake Chelan Boating Club, and recently an active committee member for the Citizens for a New Hospital.  I retired from the US Postal Service after serving for 32 years in 2014. My husband Allen and I have been farming the 110 year old family orchard since 1971, and we enjoy spending time with our family.
