Texas Health Resources Combines Philanthropic Efforts Under Single Foundation|
Click to hear the taped broadcast.
I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
Philanthropic giving is the life-blood of any community-based not-for-profit organization. Texas Health Harris Methodist Foundation and Texas Health Presbyterian Foundation have established solid reputations in the communities they serve. Philanthropy has provided support for clinical, educational and research programs across the Texas Health system.
Texas Health is continuing to advance a culture of philanthropy by merging our two Foundations into a single Texas Health Resources Foundation that will mirror our region-wide focus on improving the health of the communities we serve.
The Texas Health Resources Foundation will be governed by a board of community leaders selected from the board members of the merged Foundations from across the region.
This is part of our strategy to transform from a hospital-centric organization to an integrated, regional health system. In planning this transition, we studied best practices of other nationally-recognized health systems and not-for-profit organizations.
Texas Health has been abundantly blessed by the leadership and wisdom of the dedicated people who have served our two Foundations for many years. We are deeply grateful for the generous support of the communities we serve. We pledge that Texas Health Resources Foundation will continue to advance caring for the people of our communities in body, mind and spirit.
For our faith-based health system — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
