Richard Haydinger, Jr.
Community involvement has been a long-standing cornerstone of both my personal and professional lives. I am impassioned about helping others, and my board involvement with Deborah is a vital piece in that community service chain. Empowering Deborah to navigate an ever-changing business environment is gratifying, especially since I know the powerful medical impact the Hospital has on so many lives.
