Maryville, Illinois--The Anderson Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of Gary Niebur to the board of directors. The thirteen-member foundation board provides leadership and fundraising efforts for carrying out the Foundation’s mission: to support and promote Anderson Hospital as it provides exceptional healthcare services for the communities it serves.

“I am very pleased to have Gary join the Anderson Hospital Foundation Board.  Gary brings a vast amount of community knowledge and leadership to the board and a strong belief in Anderson Hospital,” says Keith Page, President and CEO of Anderson Hospital. “I look forward to his contributions.”

The third YMCA facility, the Allison Cassens Early Childhood Development Center, opened in 2014.

Gary has been the recipient of numerous community service awards, including the Jaycees Ten Outstanding Young Persons in the State of Illinois; Rotary Club International Paul Harris Fellowship Award; the Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizen Award; SIUE Religious Center Interfaith Award, and the Edwardsville Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce Lifetime Achievement Award.
