Greg Graves, the chairman and chief executive of engineering and architecture firm Burns & McDonnell, has been elected the new chair of The University of Kansas Hospital Authority Board.
Graves, who was vice chair of the authority board and leads the hospital’s fund raising drive for its new patient tower, succeeds Bob Honse, the former president of Farmland Industries.
The hospital authority is the public overseer of The University of Kansas Hospital and its operations.
“Greg Graves brings a national and local track record for leadership in business and civic affairs,” Bob Page, president and CEO of the hospital, said in a statement. “He will help us further our success in the metropolitan area and across the country.”
David Dillon, former CEO of the Kroger supermarket chain, was elected vice chair of the authority board.
