(AP) — Former Kentucky Gov. Martha Layne Collins has been named the new executive-in-residence at Baptist Health Paducah and Baptist Health Foundation Paducah.
Collins will participate in community initiatives and events, as well as contribute to development activities, including donor relationships and partnerships.
Collins, the commonwealth's only female governor, served from 1983 to 1987.
She says she is excited to have a role in improving health in western Kentucky.
Money raised by the Baptist Health Foundation Paducah helps the hospital improve its patient care through technology, services and facilities.
