Eastern Idaho Regional names new community relations and marketing specialist

Michele Badrov
Michele Badrov has joined Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center as its new community relations and marketing specialist.

Originally from Seattle, she moved to Idaho Falls four years ago with her family. Her business experience includes a Prudential-affiliated real estate appraisal and development firm in South Carolina. When she had children, she transferred her skills and abilities to the volunteer sector, serving on executive boards for the education foundation, school site councils, PTA and youth sports. She is president of the Southpoint Homeowners Association.

She holds a master's in health care administration from Idaho State University. Now that her children are older, she said it was time to refocus on her career.

"I hired Michele because she brings community-based involvement and a business background," said Cindy Smith-Putnam, the hospital's executive director of business development, marketing and community relations.
