Ronald Schmalzle Joins Wayne Memorial Hospital Board
Wayne Memorial, headquartered in Wayne County, has offered outpatient services in Pike County for more than three decades.
Ron, pleased to be a part of the Wayne Memorial governance team, is a familiar face in Pike County. He is president and co-owner/general manager of the Recreation Management Group which owns and/or operates three popular visitor venues: Ski Big Bear, Costa’s Family Fun Park and Masthope Mountain Community, which is a four-season year-round and second-home private residential community.
“As a native of Pike County with a lifelong career of leadership in commercial recreation in our region,” said Ron, “I look forward to having both insight and input on healthcare services for my family, my community and the many people who visit here to enjoy all that the northern Poconos offer”.
Since 1993, Ron has also been the executive director and, most recently, a retainer-based consultant for several children’s camps, including Pine Forest Camp, Lake Owego Camp and Camp Timber Tops. A graduate of Wallenpaupack High School and Marywood University Ron has also taken advanced courses in management, marketing, technology and commercial insurance.

Ron also has many years of experience in community activities, including past chapter president of the PIAA Soccer League, chairman of the Pike County Hotel Tax Board and Pike Marcellus Shale Task Force Economic Committee. He has also been heavily involved in many political campaigns for Pike County and state level officials.
“Ron is very much a part of the fabric of Pike County,” said Board Chairman Dirk Mumford, “and he will bring a unique perspective to our board. We look forward to working with him on initiatives beneficial not only to Pike County residents but to all the people served by Wayne Memorial.”
