Children’s Home of Stockton elects new board member
Children’s Home of Stockton has elected its newest board member, Gary Spaugh, a healthcare consultant.
Spaugh holds a Masters of Hospital Administration and Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley, and a BA in Public Administration from California State University at San Francisco. He is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives. Spaugh is a healthcare administrator retired from his role as a senior executive at the Dignity Health corporate office (now Common Spirit Health). His experience spans over 40 years in hospital and healthcare administration, strategy, business development, health plans, joint ventures, and affiliations. Prior to Dignity Health, he was the Senior Vice President of St. Joseph’s Regional Health System responsible for leadership and development of multiple hospitals into a multi-county regional integrated delivery system.
Spaugh was born in San Francisco, and now resides both in Stockton and San Mateo, along with his wife Linda. He currently serves on the Boards of St. Joseph’s Medical Center Community Council, Hospice of San Joaquin, O’Connor Woods, and San Joaquin County Chapter of the Civil Grand Jurors’ Association.
“Having served on our Civil Grand Jury, investigating group homes in the county and knowing the need for the mission of the Children’s Home of Stockton, I am moved to help give our vulnerable youth a more positive life experience than that which they have known,” said Spaugh. “Our investment in their future is the most vital investment we can make in that for our community.”
The mission of the Children’s Home of Stockton is to provide at-risk youth an opportunity for a productive life through treatment and education in a safe, nurturing environment.
