The new senior vice president of Philanthropy and Governance for Care New England will be Karen A. Davie of Providence, who most recently served in a similar post for Women & Infants.
Davie’s career experience includes serving as chief operating officer and acting president and CEO of United Way of America; president of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the National Hospice Foundation; and the founding executive of the Bath Community Hospital Foundation (a 25-bed critical access hospital in Hot Springs, VA). Davie is a member of The Advisory Board Company’s Philanthropy Leadership Council.
