Long-time governance consultant and trustee Winnie Hageman died Oct. 9. Hageman was a member of the board of trustees for Northwest Hospital in Seattle for over 30 years. She was president from 1978 to 1980 and chair from 1980 to 1981. She also served on the board of the Washington State Hospital Association and served a three-year term on the board of the American Hospital Association. She formed a consulting partnership with Rich Umbdenstock, now president and CEO of AHA, which focused on hospital governance and board relations. "Winnie wanted to see hospitals be leaders, always erring on the side of patients and the community, and she wanted hospital boards to lead that charge," Umbdenstock says. Hageman was a frequent contributor to Trustee magazine and co-authored several books on health care governance.
