Jungers Elected To Health System Board of Trustees

Amy Jungers was elected to the Board of Trustees of Orange City Area Health System at the November 7, 2023, elections held in Alton, Iowa. She will be replacing board member Brenda Richardson, who is retiring in January.

The seven-member health system Board of Trustees consists of six Orange City residents and one Alton resident. Trustees serve four-year terms. Jungers will assume the Alton seat.

As a member of the board, Jungers “plans to bring a voice for the young families in the community.”

“My family has had great experiences at Orange City Area Health System over the years, in physical therapy, the birth center, clinic, and hospital stays,” said Jungers. “I hope to help bring these positive experiences to others, especially during times of trial.”

“We are pleased and grateful that Amy will be joining our Board,” commented Marty Guthmiller, CEO of Orange City Area Health System. “While Amy will bring a new perspective, we are also grateful for Brenda’s 20 years of dedicated service to the Board.”

Jungers is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in communication studies and public relations. She currently serves as the Development Director at Gehlen Catholic Schools. She says she was encouraged to run for the Board position by family and friends who knew she had a love for Orange City Area Health System.
