My background is aviation flight operations, safety and training for a major airline. I've worked closely with Dr. Pilcher on issues of quality and safety for many years.

I have served as a colleague of Dr. Pilcher on the EvergreenHealth Board since 2016. As a retired Emergency Physician, he brings a unique perspective to the Board of Commissioners regarding patient care and clinical quality. Chuck is deeply invested in the community and is committed to maintaining Evergreen’s high-quality standards with his leadership of the Board Quality and Safety Committee. His personal traits of high integrity, energy and curiosity, along with his extensive medical background, enable Chuck to make a continually positive impact on EvergreenHealth, and by extension, the health and wellbeing of our community.

Board Chair, EvergreenHealth
I have known Dr. Chuck Pilcher for 20 years and I worked as an Emergency Physician under his leadership when he was Evergreen Emergency Department's Medical Director. I was also an Evergreen Medical Staff Leader for 4 years and served and worked beside Dr Pilcher on hospital committees while he was a Hospital Commissioner. So, I have had the opportunity to work with and observed his leadership for many years. I have always found him to be a thoughtful, hard working individual who leads with honor and integrity. As a physician, he brings important medical knowledge and perspective to the Board. I give him my highest recommendation for reelection as a commissioner. — Jack Handley MD FACEP

As a Commissioner, Dr. Pilcher has been a leader in the delivery of safe, high quality, compassionate care to all members of our community. It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend him for your vote in the upcoming election! — Jeff Tomlin MD
CEO, EvergreenHealth
Dr. PIlcher has been a tireless supporter of Evergreen Hospital and the physicians, nurses and paramedics that provide care to the hospital's patients for decades. As the medical director of Evergreen's Emergency Department for years, Dr. Pilcher established a culture of respect and quality that prioritized superlative patient care. As a member of the hospital board, he has guided the establishment of cardiac, stroke and trauma care that have made Evergreen a medical center that is nationally recognized for its innovation and excellence. As an Emergency Department physician that has worked at Evergreen for over twenty years and seen many changes in the facility and the community, I cannot imagine anyone better qualified and more motivated to continue to lead Evergreen into the future. As the medical director of Redmond Medic One, an organization that is recognized worldwide for its unmatched success in cardiac arrest resuscitation, I cannot imaging someone who will continue to provide the resources and leadership that allows our pre-hospital providers to give the residents of Northeast King County world class care. Dr. Pilcher has been a member of the Evergreen family and a Kirkland resident for over forty years. He truly has the best interest of the hospital and the community it serves in his heart. No other candidate is better suited to be the leader that he has been and will continue to be. Thank you Dr. Pilcher for everything you have done for the Evergreen family.
