Hospital Foundation Announces New Director on The Foundation Board – Chuck Burgess


The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation Staff and Board of Directors are pleased to welcome Chuck Burgess as their newest Foundation Board Director.

Chuck brings with him a high level of financial expertise. He has over 15 years of experience overseeing investment portfolios, including the right to use the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Designation. His experience includes over 11 years as a senior portfolio manager at Frontier Asset Management, 3.5 years as the director of finance and supply chain at Sheridan Memorial Hospital, and he has been in his current role as a portfolio analyst with Eliason Financial since 2020.

Having grown up in Big Horn, family, and community are values instilled in Chuck. So, together with his wife, Nicki, they became licensed foster parents in 2016. This selfless and heartfelt decision has led to more than a dozen foster children having a place to stay at their home. They have had foster children as little as a newborn and as old as ten and have kept them for as little as 24 hours to as long as forever. Their two youngest children were foster children they eventually adopted.

Beyond spending time with his beautiful family, Chuck enjoys reading, coaching his kids, and watching sports.

With all the challenging work ahead of The Foundation, Chuck’s leadership, competence, and community spirit is a welcome addition to The Foundation Board. The Foundation looks forward to the experience, enthusiasm, and perspective Chuck will bring in the coming year and all we will accomplish for healthcare in our community – together.
