Dorothy K. Weik-Hange was appointed, effective Jan. 1, as the new chair of Penn Foundation’s board of directors. She joined the board in 2014, most recently serving as vice chair.
She is a partner at Landis, Hunsberger, Gingrich & Weik, LLP. She succeeds Margaret Zook who has served as board chair for the past nine years and has been a board member since 1997. Zook will remain on the board of directors and serve as vice chair.
“Penn Foundation is very grateful for both Dorothy’s and Margaret’s servant leadership, incredible vision, and unwavering commitment to quality care,” said Wayne Mugrauer, president and CEO. “With the ever-changing health care landscape bringing new, non-traditional competition, increased regulatory pressures and rising costs, Penn Foundation has been blessed with loyal leaders who are passionate about our work and are committed to adapting and evolving our services to remain relevant.”
This year marks Penn Foundation’s 65th year. While the organization has grown significantly from its first days operating in a small farmhouse in Sellersville with a handful of employees, its mission has remained the same. Today, Penn Foundation’s 450 team members provide innovative mental health services and substance use treatment to more than 19,000 individuals annually through 27 distinct programs.
