Scott Bleck Wants to See ThedaCare Name Thrive in Area
Scott Bleck is very familiar with the ThedaCare name and the hospital in New London.
“ThedaCare has been a provider in our family for many years,” said Bleck, 42, of Weyauwega. “I grew up north of New London and have lived in Waupaca County the majority of my childhood and adult life. The New London hospital has been a fixture in my life entirely. I know it well in that is has been a point of security for my family today and yesteryear.”
Bleck is now taking a closer interest in ThedaCare Medical Center-New London as a member of the board of directors, being a voice for the stakeholders and the community. “I saw it as an opportunity not only to give back to the community but further my knowledge and interest in community health and services that are available for our community members to utilize,” he said.
He hopes to find ways for ThedaCare and the communities it serves to work together and “to create a resource that is sought after and respected.”
Bleck is the superintendent of schools for the Weyauwega-Freemont School District. He has been employed by the school district in various roles for16 years. “As a public servant working in public schools, I bring the ability to present ideas that will utilize resources efficiently and effectively,” he said.
He looks forward to developing and reviewing policy that exists and ensure it is being carried through. “I want to empower ThedaCare Medical Center-New London the ability to serve and meet the ever changing needs of the our local communities,” he said.
Bleck wants to help the hospital grow and thrive. “It’s a quality organization that represents its customers well,” he said. “We’ve always been satisfied with the services and products ThedaCare has been able to provide for my family and the community around.”
Bleck is married and has two children. He enjoys sports and outdoor activities like hunting and fishing. He also cheers on his daughters who play basketball and softball.
