The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the second-floor board room at Medical Center Hospital, 500 W. Fourth St. MCHS President and CEO Rick Napper is requesting the board consider changing the name of the building to the Wilson and Young Medal of Honor Building. The original request was to just name the VA Clinic at the Center for Health and Wellness after two local Medal of Honor recipients, Alfred M. Wilson, USMC, and Marvin R. Young, U.S. Army, agenda material stated. The Purple Heart Society and Medal of Honor Society asked MCHS for their permission and support and also asked the hospital to allow them to approach Congressman Mike Conaway, R-Midland. The groups wanted Conaway to request the Veterans Administration give permission to name the VA clinic after the local heroes, which would result in a need for MCHS to allow altering the exterior of the building. After meeting with Conaway, they discovered that due to the nature of the request and current state of Congress that it could take a considerable amount of time to get the required congressional approval for the naming opportunity, the material stated. The groups then asked MCHS if it would consider naming the entire Medical Office Building, at which point Napper said he would raise the issue at a board meeting to discuss the possibility. The three options the board now has includes waiting to see if Congress can move quickly to approve the naming of the VA Clinic, not move forward at all, or approve the naming of the CHW building in honor of Wilson and Young, agenda material stated. The groups wanting to recognize the individuals would have to raise the money for the projects, the material detailed. “I believe that with the Chris Kyle Memorial in an adjacent location that this would add additional honor to those that serve our country,” Napper wrote in the agenda material. The hospital board finance committee will also meet Tuesday prior to the regular board meeting at 4:30 p.m. The committee will consider approving several capital expenditure requests including an automated urinalysis analyzer, a cardiovascular imaging gamma camera and a Nihon Kohden telemetry upgrade and expansion.IN OTHER BUSINESS, THE BOARD WILL CONSIDERAn Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit Presentation.The TTUHSC at the Permian Basin report.The Chief Executive Officer Report for Quarter 1, Fiscal Year 2019.A quarterly legal report/conflict of interest.Approval of B.E.
