Providence Hospitals adds two new foundation board members

Providence Hospitals recently announced the addition of two new board members to the Providence Hospitals Development Foundation. The new members are Anna Alessandrini and William Newsome III.

“This is an exciting time for Providence Hospitals. With the shifts we are making to meet the dynamic changes affecting the health care industry, I know that Anna and Billy will be strong assets as we grow the culture of philanthropy through the Providence Hospitals Development Foundation,” said Libby Anne Inabinet, president of the Providence Hospitals Development Foundation. The Providence Hospitals Development Foundation was established in 2009 to support and enhance Providence Hospitals through funding and community awareness.

Through the support of foundations, individuals and corporations, and under the leadership of a strong board of trustees, the development foundation is able to help Providence Hospitals continue to provide the highest quality health care and to ensure that Providence Hospitals positions itself to remain the health care provider of choice in South Carolina.

The Providence Hospitals Development Foundation believes in supporting and enhancing faith-based health care through the healing ministry of Providence Hospitals, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System. One-hundred percent of all donor gifts go to capital programs and projects that enhance and support Providence Hospitals.
