The Begg & Ogden Story

Before he was an Asante employee, Robert was part of the Asante family. The parent of a child treated for critical illness at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, he experienced the compassion of the pediatric team.

Generosity Exemplifies

Today, as Vice President of Human Resources, Robert is a visionary leader, responsible for attracting exceptional workers and retaining them with practices that support individuals and families.

Robert has given back to Asante for 14 years, through employee giving campaigns. Now, he has made a leadership pledge to support AsanteForward. He is joined in this commitment by his husband Ken, an esteemed architect known for providing pro bono services to local charities that serve children and families in need.

Their firsthand experience as fathers and their insiders’ understanding of the AsanteForward plan bring confidence to their investment, while they lead by example.

“Asante is so true to their mission—it’s all about the community’s health. It resonates. We have been proud and honored to be a part of that.”

“There is incredible power in doing good. The golden rule should be more than a rule – it should be a purpose.”
