October 11, 2011
Arlene A. Snyder, CFRE, has been named the new President of Sibley Memorial Hospital Foundation. "Sibley is an essential hospital for a very important community in our nation’s capital," says Snyder. She was attracted to the position at Sibley due to the plans for growth and change being implemented by hospital and board leadership. Sibley is in the midst of a major campus development plan that is modernizing the hospital’s facilities and has recently integrated with Johns Hopkins Health System.
"Major advances in health care require major investments of philanthropy," said Michael K. Farr, chairman of the Sibley Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Board of Trustees. "Arlene Snyder has provided successful fund-raising leadership to organizations both in our community and in her native city of Pittsburgh. We look forward to Arlene’s experienced leadership to grow our philanthropy and meet the opportunities for innovation and expansion that are in our future."
"There is no doubt that Sibley’s campus development and the integration with Johns Hopkins will result in Sibley’s patients benefiting from cutting edge science and state-of-the-art facilities," said Ms. Snyder. "I look forward to being part of such an important transformation that will touch the lives of so many."
Arlene Snyder was the Senior Vice President of Development for Washington Hospital Center since 2006. Prior to this, she was President of the West Penn Hospital Foundation and Senior Vice President of Development for the West Penn Allegheny Health System in Pittsburgh, PA. Snyder is a Certified Fund Raising Executive and holds a master’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh. She and her husband Timothy live in the District.
