Foundation Board of Trustees: Call for Candidates

Holy Cross Hospital Foundation seeks individuals with diverse talents to join its board of trustees. The foundation will draw its pool of candidates from the greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan region.

Holy Cross Hospital
Holy Cross Hospital was founded in 1963 by the Sisters of the Holy Cross. It is located on the Capital Beltway in Silver Spring, Md, and regularly ranks as the second-largest hospital based on patient volume in the state of Maryland. Holy Cross Hospital is a non-profit teaching hospital that offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient care, with specialized expertise in Ob/Gyn, Cancer, Neurology, Spine and Joint, and Emergency Care - including the nation's first dedicated Senior's Emergency Center. The hospital operates two community-based primary care health centers for uninsured adults, and will open a third in 2011. The hospital operates the county's largest obstetrics clinic for uninsured women on-site, which is the only gynecological care resource in Montgomery County for these women.

Holy Cross Health Foundation
The Holy Cross HealthFoundation was founded in 2006 to support the philanthropic goals of Holy Cross Hospital. A 25-member board of Trustees raises funds supported by the Foundation staff, which raises funds through direct mail appeals, special events, planned giving initiatives, and major donor and capital campaign initiatives. Trustees provide leadership, engagement and introductions for major gift fund raising ($5,000+) from individuals, families, regional, national, and multinational corporations, and grant-making foundations.
