The University of Kansas Hospital said today that Greg Graves, CEO of Burns & McDonnell, is the new chairman of The University of Kansas Hospital Authority Board.
Graves, a hospital board member since 2009, succeeds Bob Honse, former president of Farmland, who has served as the board chairman since 2008.
“Bob Honse has not only been an outstanding board chair and board member, he has also been my mentor, coach and friend,” Bob Page, president and CEO of the hospital, said in prepared remarks. “Greg Graves brings a national and local track record for leadership in business and civic affairs. He will help us further our success in the metropolitan area and across the country.”
Graves and wife, Deanna, are heading the fundraising campaign for the hospital's new Cambridge North patient tower.
