Ann joined PeaceHealth in 2012 as Director of Development at PeaceHealth St. Joseph and the Whatcom Hospice Foundation, and since 2016 has been director of network development for Northwest. Among her many accomplishments, Ann was instrumental in accelerating the Stronger Together fundraising campaign, which is a generational investment to transform our community hospital into a premier 21st-century medical center in Northwest Washington.
“Philanthropy plays a critical role in our evolution as a people- and community-centered organization,” said Mike Dwyer, executive vice president of strategy and public health. “As System Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Ann will lead PeaceHealth’s philanthropic activities, supporting our community foundations, leading scheduled donations, large donor donations and research, private grant development, and corporate relationships.”
Anna was preceded by Pat Modrzejewski, who is temporarily retiring from a position she has held on an interim basis since 2019. Pat graciously agreed to leave her first retirement to join PeaceHealth and helped promote a culture of gratitude in which PeaceHealth supporters and stakeholders – donors, board members, physicians, caregivers and community members – are seen as investors and create shared vision for the future of PeaceHealth.
