The St. John’s Medical Center Board of Trustees appointed Sue Critzer as Trustee on Tuesday, October 1, 2019. The vacancy was created by the resignation of Elizabeth Masek in September. Critzer will serve as Trustee from November 2019 through the next General Election in November 2020.
Critzer is a seasoned executive with over thirty years of experience in the medical device and automotive industries. She holds a BSME from Kettering University and a MBA from University of Michigan. Before retiring to Jackson, she was CEO of two medical device start-ups and served on the boards of several companies in the Twin Cities area. She and her husband Kevin have lived in Jackson Hole full-time since 2007.
Critzer was appointed as an advisor to the St. John’s Board of Trustees in January 2018. She is a member of the strategy and finance/IT committees of the Board of Trustees and is a past president of the St. John’s Medical Center Auxiliary. She also volunteers with the Friends of Pathways and enjoys spending time skiing, biking, fishing, and hiking.
“Through my work with the Auxiliary and as a Board Advisor, and my many ‘opportunities’ as a patient, I have developed a deep respect for the level of care provided by our hospital and the people who deliver it,” said Critzer. “I understand firsthand how lucky we are to have this care available locally, and the challenges involved in providing it. I look forward to this opportunity to continue to contribute in a meaningful way to our community and hospital by serving as a Trustee.”
