“I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to partner with these community leaders who will bring their talent, energy, and insightful perspectives to our Board as we continue the growing needs in our community,” said Linda Minks Hood, chair of Erlanger Health System Foundation board of directors. 
 
Julie Taylor, president of Erlanger Health System Foundation, stated, “The Foundation has been very strategic in its growth especially around board development. Each of these members was recruited for specific skills and expertise that will more than complement our plan and vision for the future. We couldn’t be more excited to have them join our team.”
 
The Foundation is governed by the Erlanger Health System Foundation board of directors which is comprised entirely of volunteers. Led by Lynda Minks Hood (chair), Lynn Mosier Bryant (vice-chair), Les Lee (secretary), James Purgason (treasurer), and Ashley Davenport and Chris Welch (at-large board members), the board of directors serves to build community awareness and raise funds for the Foundations’ fundraising initiatives. 
 
Erlanger Health System Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Erlanger. Through the “Believe” campaign, Erlanger Health System Foundation was instrumental in helping the system raise funds to build the new Children’s Kennedy Outpatient Center which became operational in December 2018.
