After a quarter century, “backbone” of hospital board is stepping down

MARTIN COUNTY - After a quarter century during some of the most pivotal times in the history of the Martin County Hospital, Jerry Cox is stepping down from his role as the leader of the Martin County Hospital Board. Martin County commissioners named three board members to two-year terms on the hospital board Tuesday and for the first time in many years, Cox is not one of them. “He’s been the backbone of this board and this hospital for many years.

Clearly we are grateful for all the work he’s done and for his loyalty to this hospital,” said MCH Administrator Rance Ramsey. Cox’s tenure began under the late MCH Administrator Dan Griffis who died in a vehicle wreck when the hospital was still on St. Peter in the old, dilapitating facilities.
