Martin Medical Center is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members to the organization’s board of directors.

Mary-Jo Horton, of Palm City, has been a volunteer and supporter of the Martin Health System for 30 years. As a member of the Martin Health Auxiliary, Horton volunteered more than 16,000 hours and served as auxiliary president for two years in 1999 and 2001. During her tenure with the auxiliary, Horton also served on the Martin Health System Board of Directors, where she was appointed chairman for three years, from 1996 - 1998.  A native Floridian, Horton received her MBA from the University of Miami. She retired from Burdines department stores (now Macy’s) where she was Vice President of Human Resources and Public Affairs.

Terry Skidmore, of Stuart, joins the board of Martin Medical Center as she also assumes the role of president of the Martin Health Auxiliary for 2014 – 15.  A retired nurse, Skidmore has been active in the auxiliary since 2008, serving in a variety of capacities: pastoral care, recording secretary and personal response coordinator.  She was formerly president of the Mt. Nittany Medical Center Auxiliary in Pennsylvania.

 “We are very pleased to welcome Mary-Jo and Terry to our board of directors, as they both bring  tremendous experience and commitment to Martin Medical Center,” said Mark Robitaille, president and chief executive officer.
