Paul M. Maughan PhD, Board President
Serving on Island Hospital's Board of Commissioners since March 1997, Paul Maughan believes Island Hospital is a unique place where patients can find experienced, dedicated doctors and staff to ensure their optimum level of care.
Dr. Maughan holds a PhD in Physical Oceanography as well as degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Meteorology, and is an internationally recognized expert in satellite imaging systems. He retired after 35 years from his consulting company where he was intimately involved in the application of advanced technology such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and was an early contributor to what is now Google Maps. He has served as a contractor, advisor and contributor to a number of groups including the National Academies' National Research Council.
Dr. Maughan spearheaded the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Project that was enthusiastically received in Anacortes and neighboring communities. He is admired for his warmth and the value he places on each life as well as his commitment to improving the wellness of our community."
Island Hospital has a terrific management team," Maughan says, "and it's exciting to see our hospital broadly respected for not only its focus on quality and safety but developing a campus that will meet our community's healthcare requirements."
