At its August quarterly meeting, the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin (Foundation) board of directors voted to add two leaders to their group. Tom Claycomb, an attorney in Hodgenville, Ky., and Elizabeth DuPlessis Waters, DMD, MS, an orthodontist in Elizabethtown, Ky., committed to help advance the Foundation’s mission to provide leadership and resources to strengthen Baptist Health Hardin (Hardin).
Claycomb, a LaRue County native and resident, believes a thriving healthcare system in Central Kentucky directly impacts the clients with whom he works.
“In my law practice, I often represent people who need significant medical treatment,” he said. “Whether it’s a client who has been seriously injured in an automobile accident or one who needs to create an estate plan, these neighbors and friends of mine need access to the best physicians and specialists, close to home.”
Waters comes from a family committed to public service. “My family always modeled giving back to our community,” Waters said. “Many of us were born at this hospital, including my two sons, so I know firsthand how fortunate we are to have one of Kentucky’s most impressive healthcare systems right here in Elizabethtown. We’ve all seen their skill even more clearly during this pandemic.”
