Kris Waller is retiring on July 10 as executive director of the Hazel Hawkins Hospital Foundation and will be greatly missed.
She has been with the district for over six years, three of them as the director. She has been involved with major campaigns for the hospital including Operation Renovation, the main hospital renovation, the opening of the Barragan Family Diabetes Center, enhancing health care centers, refreshing our outpatient centers and the Mabie Makeover – refreshing Mabie Northside SNF.
All of these campaigns were huge successes and have made a big impact on the hospital. We wish Kris the best with her retirement! Thank you, Kris, for all you did for HHMH.
