WHA Goes Live on Facebook and Twitter
In order to expand communications with members, as well as legislators and the public, the Wyoming Hospital Association has launched a presence on Facebook and Twitter. The WHA’s social media approach will enable it to directly deliver key information on important topics, such as the Medicaid expansion, and when information is moving quickly, such as during the legislative session.Facebook and Twitter also open up WHA communications more broadly to the public, strengthening the WHA’s position as the key source for hospital and healthcare related information in Wyoming. Both social media outlets will be updated regularly, so check them often to stay up with the latest from the WHA, and on healthcare news from around Wyoming. Follow the WHA on Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/wyohospitals, and follow us on Twitter using @WyoHospitals.

The board of St. John's Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that it has named John G. Goettler as its new president.
Mr. Goettler will assume the role vacated by former director Liz Finegan, who was responsible for hospital fundraising since 2008.

Mr. Goettler brings with him over 25 years of experience, including many years as president of Goettler Associates, a fundraising consulting firm that has served more than 1,500 non-profit organizations since its founding in 1965.
Over the course of his career, he has provided capital campaign planning services, major and planned gift counsel, annual fund evaluation and analytics.
