St. Joseph’s fills two positions on Board of Directors



HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center President/CEO Randy Fale has announced that Bruce Burton, M.D., J.D., and Mike Abram have accepted positions on the hospital’s Board of Directors.

Meanwhile, Dr. Larry Brashears recently stepped down after completing his term on the hospital board. Others serving on St. Joseph’s board are Dr. Greg A. St. John, Dr. Robert Aspell, Sister Annrene Brau, RSM, Sister Barbara Grant, RSM, and Sister Diane Koorie, RSM, Sister Janice Kaiser, RSM, Janice Morrison, Bart Newman and Jack Porter, DDS.

“We are excited with the arrival of our new board members,” Fale said. “They have both exhibited extensive community involvement and bring special expertise to the board. We look forward to their terms of service, while we bid a fond farewell to those who have completed their terms.”

Dr. Burton, a board certified internal medicine physician, resides in Malvern where he has maintained a practice since 1981. The 1970 graduate of Forest City High School is married and he and his wife, Cheryl, have three children – 23-year-old Kyle, 20-year-old Katy and 17-year-old Luke. Dr. Burton graduated from Hendrix College in 1974 with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry.

He then earned his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in 1978 before doing his internal medicine internship and residency at University Hospital in Little Rock from 1978 through 1981. Dr. Burton also secured a juris doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) in 1997.

Abram, President of Triumph Airborne Structures, moved from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Hot Springs in December of 2003, after 17 years and multiple roles with the NORDAM Group, the world’s largest privately held Federal Aviation Administration-approved repair station for composite and metal bond aircraft structures. In his last three years with NORDAM, Abram served as General Manager of the company’s Repair Division and Acting General Manager of its Singapore Repair Division.

Before recently being named President, he spent his first three years with Triumph Airborne Structures as Vice President of Operations. The southwest Missouri native and his wife, Vicki, who have one daughter named Amy, spent the early years of their marriage in Fayetteville. The couple spent 12 years owning and operating businesses in the automobile industry before Abram took his first position as an aircraft technician with NORDAM in 1988.
