Mr. McCulley will focus on expanding service lines and the growth of both companies.

“I am honored to be assuming this important role with Touchette,” Jansen noted. “The situation at both organizations has made this the opportune time to make these changes and to focus on the community and people we serve.  I look forward to working with Dr. Day and our hospital staff to making this hospital the first choice for local residents and increasing the services that we can offer.”
