Lake Regional Medical Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lake Regional Health System in Osage Beach, recently welcomed Patrick Rowland to its board of directors. The uncompensated board provides governance and oversight of strategic initiatives for Lake Regional’s seven freestanding primary care clinics, 22 specialty clinics, three express care walk-in clinics, and five retail pharmacies.
“We’re pleased to welcome Patrick Rowland to the Medical Group board,” said Dane Henry, FACHE, LRMG board president and chief executive officer of Lake Regional Health System. “His extensive background in business and the lake community will make him a valuable asset to the LRMG board.”
Rowland is currently branch manager and first vice president-investment officer with the Laurie branch of Wells Fargo Advisors, where he has worked for 14 years. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a Masters of Business Administration from Missouri State University in Springfield.
He and his wife Megan, a nurse practitioner, and their four children reside in Stover where they own and operate three farm businesses, and a residential real estate business. They are also heavily involved in a number of community organizations. Rowland currently serves on the Stover Industrial Development board of directors. Previously, during his tenure as a board member of Citizens for Health and Wellness, the group was instrumental in bringing the Prairie Hills Clinic to Versailles.
Rowland looks forward to further contributing to the lake community as an LRMG board member.
“I am excited to help Lake Regional Health System continue to grow and develop,” Rowland said. “My family has made this area home since 1879 and I want to continue to make it a better place to live.”
