Baptist Health Hardin Foundation leaders welcomed Casin Hubbard as their first philanthropy officer, a position created to connect philanthropic donors with projects that improve patient care at Baptist Health Hardin. Hubbard, a Meade County native, brings more than six years of healthcare 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 (NICU), to improve pediatric therapy and emergency care, start a pet therapy program, expand the sexual assault nurse examiner program and much, much more,” said Baptist Health Hardin Vice President and Chief Development Officer Tracee Troutt. “Because Baptist Health will make significant investments in our healthcare 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 healthcare industry, passion for making an impact, and communication skills to build lasting relationships within Baptist Health Hardin’s ten-county service area.
“I set a goal to try and find a place my work could make a real difference. When I learned how the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin advances the well-being and economic health of the region, I knew I found the perfect fit,” Hubbard said. “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 Baptist Health Foundation Hardin, Hubbard was the Owner and President of Hubbard Medical Consultants, which provided healthcare leaders access to the latest technologies and services to improve overall patient care. In this role, Hubbard forged important relationships with healthcare leaders across the state to enhance patient outcomes and grant everyone access to modern practices.
Hubbard received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Kentucky. He also is very involved in his community as a local youth sports volunteer.
