Our Leadership

The Benedictine Health Foundation is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors that has the primary responsibility for shaping the mission and vision of the organization, establishing strategic direction, and ensuring the Foundation meets its financial and legal responsibilities. This diverse group of individuals meets regularly to determine how the Foundation is best able to work collaboratively and effectively with health care partners and educators to enhance programs and services offered to the community that we serve.
