MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The El Camino Hospital Board of Directors plans to expand the size of the Board from its current six members to nine members by the end of June, 2012.  The Board has retained recruitment firm Russell Reynolds  to conduct the search of interested individuals who are subject matter and strategic experts in the fields of finance, quality measures and health care policy . 

"As the complexity of the health care environment continues to evolve, it is important that we prepare our organization to best meet the imminent yet unknown challenges ahead," says John Zoglin, board chairman.  "The hospital and the community will stand to gain from the additional expertise placed on our board and committees."
