Julia Bolton will chair the Northern Berkshire Healthcare board of Trustees.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire Healthcare board of trustees elected Julia Bolton of Williamstown as board chair at its January meeting. Jonathan Cluett was elected vice chair and Bryon Sherman was named secretary. Re-elected to the board were trustees Jane Allen, William F. Frado Jr. and Martha Storey.

Bolton was first elected to the Northern Berkshire Healthcare board in 2008. She has served as co-chair of the quality committee and chairs the nominating committee.  As chair she is also an ex-officio member of the audit, compensation and patient care assessment committees. Bolton, Allen and Storey also serve as liaisons to the medical staff credentials committee. Bolton has enjoyed a long career in healthcare both as educator and hospital administrator. Among other positions, she served as vice president of operations and chief nursing officer at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, Vt.
 
Bolton succeeds Arthur Turton as board chair. 
 
"During his tenure as Board chair, Art Turton led us with grace, courage, and optimism through one of the most challenging periods in this organization's history," Bolton said. "Because of his leadership we are facing a brighter future. Both the board and the community owe him a great debt of gratitude."
 
Allen, of Williamstown, is a retired teacher and elementary school principal.  She is a member of the Williamstown board of selectmen and honorary co-chair of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' capital campaign. As a trustee, she has served on the quality and compensation committees and will now join the governance committee.
 
Frado most recently served as interim president and CEO of Northern Berkshire Healthcare from June 2011 to September 2012. He first joined the board in 2010. He retired as senior vice president and general counsel to the board of directors of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Frado is a 1964 graduate of Williams College and graduated from Columbia University School of Law in 1967.
 
Storey, a 37-year resident of Williamstown, is founder of two family-owned businesses, Berkshire Direct, a marketing company, and Storey Communications, a publisher. Storey is currently a trustee at Northern Berkshire Healthcare, has served on the Reach Community Health Foundation's board of directors, the Northern Berkshire Healthcare development and governance committees, and as vice chairman of the Care Campaign for North Adams Regional Hospital.
 
Bolton, Allen, Frado and Storey are joined on the board of trustees by Arthur Turton, Ellen Bernstein, Chi Cheung, Cluett, Stephen Fix, Bruce Grinnell, Richard Jette, Sherman and Susan Yates.
