Saint Thomas Health Foundation

Connie Bradley can’t remember a time when Saint Thomas Health wasn’t her family’s hospital of choice. She's always been impressed by the commitment of the doctors and nurses to caring for patients. "In fact," she says, "my father received his care at Saint Thomas, and I credit the physicians and nurses for keeping him alive 10 years longer than we all expected."

 

In 2002, she was invited to join the Board of Directors of the Saint Thomas Health Foundation, and that opportunity gave her the chance to give back to the hospital she had grown so fond of. Since joining the board, she has been a proponent for raising funds within the foundation and has helped connect those funds directly to needs, like when she held an event to raise money for the latest digital technology for breast cancer screenings. She was also an active part of launching the Rock the Cradle fundraiser in 2010, which helps fund the Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to support premature babies and their families.

 

Through the years, Connie has continued to support the Saint Thomas Health mission. "It is a wonderful and deserving organization to support," she says. "They do so much good in our community and have a much bigger mission than people realize."
