New county commissioner on hospital board


A shake up out of the New Hanover County Commissioners meeting earlier today. Bill Caster---who represents the commissioners on the board of trustees was given the boot. His replacement: is Julia Boseman. Caster has served on the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees off and on for six years. He says the commissioners vote disappointed him. Some of Caster's fellow commissioners disagreed with his recent vote for hospital-employee bonuses. Julia Boseman, Casters replacement, was one of them. Caster says he didn't necessarily want to shell out more money, but he said the hospital needed to be rewarded for a job well done. Boseman agrees the hospital is doing well, but she says a change in who represents the New Hanover County Commissioners will be good.
