OUR COMMUNITY... OUR HOSPITAL!
Welcome to the Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation. We regard our community as the most important resource for the continued growth, stability and progress of Mendocino Coast Hospital. The Hospital Foundation raises funds for patient services and the replacement and purchase of equipment essential to the provision of up-to-date healthcare. We recognize the true importance of community members working together.
Best Wishes and Farewell to Our Executive Director
Our Executive Director, Jeri Erickson, begins a new chapter of her life on September 30, 2015 with a new organization, but she is remaining with the Foundation through our important Fundraiser, Winesong 2015 on September 12, and is assisting us in recruiting her replacement. She will be leaving the Foundation as its Executive Director in October to take on new challenges as the Director of Client Services at a local firm specializing in management of national education associations.
We are happy for Jeri, and wish her well in her new position. We also quickly asked her to join our Advisory Board when she leaves, and she has willingly agreed. Jeri may no longer serve as our leader, but she knows the importance to our community of having a well-equipped Hospital to support the extraordinary efforts of our Hospital physicians, nurses, administration and staff.
The Board of Directors has commenced a recruiting process, and the first step is a call for applications to be submitted by August 15th (or until the position is filled). The Vacancy Announcement sets out the requirements and duties of the position, and can be found on our News page, or by clicking here.
Mendocino Coast Hospital is here for all of us, providing quality care close to home, where and when we need it most! Philanthropy is critical to the programs and services provided by Mendocino Coast Hospital. So we hope you will consider joining us in our efforts to sustain and improve this vital community healthcare resource.
