Hardin Memorial Health Foundation leaders welcomed Casin Hubbard as their first philanthropy officer.
The position was created to connect philanthropic donors with projects that improve patient care at Baptist Health Hardin, according to a news release introducing Hubbard.
A Meade County native, he brings more than six years of health care industry experience to the foundation.
“In seven short years, our Board of Directors and generous donors raised $6.8 million to fund a fully operational neonatal intensive care unit, to improve pediatric therapy and emergency care, start a pet therapy program, expand the sexual assault nurse examiner program and much, much more,” Baptist Health Hardin Vice President and Chief Development Officer Tracee Troutt said in the release. “Because Baptist Health will make significant investments in our health care system, the opportunity for donors to help patients will be much larger. Casin joins our team at the perfect time.”
Hubbard will utilize his knowledge of the industry and communication skills to build relationships within Baptist Health Hardin’s 10-county service area, the release said.
“I set a goal to try and find a place my work could make a real difference. When I learned how the HMH Foundation advances the well-being and economic health of the region, I knew I found the perfect fit,” Hubbard said in the statement. “I could not be more excited to put my skills, experience, and my love of my local community to work for Baptist Health Hardin.”
Prior to joining the HMH Foundation, Hubbard was the owner and president of Hubbard Medical Consultants, which provided health care leaders access to the latest technologies and services to improve overall patient care.
Hubbard received his bachelor of science degree from the University of Kentucky.
