The Miriam Hospital Foundation Boards

About Our Foundation

The mission of The Miriam Hospital Foundation is to support excellent, compassionate and state-of-the-art health care, education, and research through philanthropy, which is essential to sustaining every great academic medical center.

The trustees provide leadership, oversight and direct assistance to fulfill The Miriam Hospital Foundation’s purpose. They serve as the governing entity for all development-related activities, advocate for the needs of the hospital – which was founded upon community philanthropy – and devote their time, talent and treasure to sustaining and advancing those initiatives.
