On behalf of our client Allina Health, CohenTaylor is pleased to announce an executive search for their next Executive Director of Development, Mercy Hospital Foundation!
Mercy Hospital has consistently been ranked among one of the best hospitals in Minnesota; ranked third in the Twin Cities and fifth in the state while being named Best Regional Hospital in a 2017 ranking of U.S. News & World Report. Exceptional healthcare institutions defy norms and expectations by providing state-of-the-art facilities and ground-breaking specialized services to communities. Philanthropy plays a significant role.
The Mercy Hospital Foundation, a part of Allina Health, provides philanthropic support for the operation and strategic priorities of Mercy Hospital. Mercy Hospital is one hospital with two campuses, following a merger in 2017. These combined campuses have delivered top-notch medical care in healing with family-centered environments for more than 50 years in the Twin Cities north metro communities.
Funds raised by the Foundation have contributed to the creation of The Mother Baby Center at Mercy Hospital, as well as Cancer patient emergency funds and the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program. In 2016, the Foundation began a three-year campaign, “Advancing a Legacy of Caring.” Among other goals, this campaign hopes to combine adult inpatient mental health and addiction services onto the Unity campus, and to create Allina Health’s first all private room 40-bed adult mental health unit.
To continue its important work, the Foundation is seeking its next Executive Director of Development. The person filling this role will be the chief fundraiser for the Mercy Hospital Foundation and as part of Allina Health in the North Metro market. This position partners with the CEO and senior leadership of Mercy Hospital, manages a volunteer board of directors and leads a small, yet vibrant team to secure philanthropic revenue.
