Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Baptist Health Foundation is pleased to announce four additions to its Board of Directors.
The Baptist Health Foundation supports and enhances essential programs and services of the Northeast Florida-based, not-for-profit Baptist Health system. Baptist Health Foundation raised almost $12 million during fiscal year 2012, thanks to the generosity of many caring individuals and organizations throughout the region.
The new directors are:
- Dan Edelman, CPA, managing partner of the Florida practice of Dixon Hughes PLLC. A certified public account with 30 years of experience, Edelman concentrates on general business consulting. He also serves as chairman of the Jacksonville Public Library Foundation Board and on Kipp Jacksonville Schools Board of Directors.
- William Mason, Ed.D, FACHE, President Emeritus of Baptist Health. Mason recently retired from the Baptist Health and Wolfson Children’s Hospital Boards of Directors, on which he served for 15 years after retiring as President and CEO of Baptist Health. Mason was recently named an emeritus member of both boards and he has also previously served as President of the Baptist Health Foundation.
- Jane Rollinson, president and CEO of Criterion Consulting Solutions where she heads the Healthcare Division. She has held top executive roles at several medical and insurance companies over her 28-year business career, moving to consulting in 2007. She serves on the Associate Board of Governors for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida and on the President’s Council of the Cancer Support Community, an international nonprofit that provides support, education and hope to people affected by cancer.
- Terry West, president and CEO of VyStar Credit Union, a Jacksonville-based credit union with more than 400,000 members and assets of more than $4.7 million. A former middle school mathematics teacher, he chaired the 2011 United Way Campaign for United Way of Northeast Florida, helping raise more than $25.5 million for the community.
“Each of these new members brings an exemplary professional and philanthropic background to the Baptist Health Foundation,” said Pierre Allaire, Ph.D., Baptist Health vice president and chief development officer who oversees the Baptist Health Foundation. “I look forward to working all four of these community leaders who are generously sharing their time and expertise with the Baptist Health Foundation.”
