“Jaymie’s giving spirit has always been driven by the needs of the community and that has reflected upon her success as board chair,” said Phillip Kambic, president and CEO of Riverside Healthcare. “The community Riverside proudly serves is a better place because of her dedication, and we thank Jaymie for her commitment.”
Writer Jaymie Simmon and Broadcaster Tim Milner announced this week that he will succeed her as Chair of the Riverside Healthcare Foundation Board, a role Jaymie has served since 2008.
Simmon helped develop the vision along with the motto for the Foundation, Generosity Heals, a sentiment exemplified by her own involvement and many accomplishments over the years. Throughout her time on the board, Simmon helped to inspire the Foundation’s efforts and raise millions through key events and campaigns, including five Riverside Heart Balls, nine Riverside Pro-Am golf tournaments, Riverside’s Nursing Excellence scholarships campaign and cancer treatment technology campaign: Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.
The Foundation has been able to direct nearly $10.5 million of philanthropic support in her eight and half years toward important programs, facilities and advanced treatment technologies at Riverside Healthcare.
