She’s the best

Put your hands together for Dr. Kim Best. She was named chairperson of The Brooklyn Hospital Center’s Community Advisory Board, along with a slate of new officers, during the board’s annual meeting on April 18.

Dr. Best, a longtime community advocate, currently works for the city’s Sanitation Department, and has a PhD in philosophy.

“This is my hospital and they have taken good care of me through the years. I intend to serve as a strong advocate for the community. I am very proud to serve as CAB Chair,” she said.

Gary G. Terrinoni, president and chief executive officer of the center, announced her appointment.

“I look forward to working with the new CAB members to explore ways on how best we can deliver additional quality health care services to the community,” he said.

Leroy Charles, vice president for External Affairs, added, “Dr. Best will serve a two-year term and succeeds the immediate past chairman Reverend Earl Jones, Sr. I would like to welcome the new board officers and members to the hospital board’s family.”

In addition to Dr. Best’s appointment, other elected officers included: vice chairwoman Dr. Loretta Patton-Greenridge; Deborah Benson, recording secretary; and Julian Macrone, program and development manager for the Fort Greene Park Conservatory.

Standing O wishes all the members good luck.
