PROGRAM ON THE VILLAGES HOSPITAL HIGHLIGHTED VHA GENERAL MEETING The September VHA General Membership Meeting began as always with the pledge of allegiance to the U.S. flag. Next on the agenda was a short business session to approve the updated By-Laws.  Vice President Fred Briggs presided for this portion of the meeting, and the By-Laws were quickly approved by the members present. President Bill Gottschalk then introduced our speakers for the evening, President and CEO Don Henderson of Central Florida Health Alliance and VHA Past President Don Hahnfeldt, who is Chairman of the Board of Directors of Central Florida Health Alliance. Utilizing a power point presentation, they reviewed the last 12 years of The Villages Regional Hospital.  Then, looking to the future, they displayed pictures and described the new five-story North Tower to open in February 2015 and the second phase of the hospital expansion to open later next year. The dedication and commitment of both Don Henderson and Don Hahnfeldt impressed the audience and left us confident that our Villages Hospital will continue to provide us with quality health care.
