Marcia Mintz Named John C. Lincoln Health Foundation CEO

Valley fundraising leader Marcia L. Mintz has been named chief executive officer of John C. Lincoln Health Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the John C. Lincoln Health Network.

Mintz joins the John C. Lincoln Health Network after four years as chief development officer of Valley of the Sun United Way in Phoenix. Her background includes more than 18 years of international and regional nonprofit and corporate work in development and philanthropy.

“We welcome Marcia’s experience and skills in the areas of development and philanthropy,” said Tom Batson, chairman of the Foundation’s board and Managing Director--Investments, Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. “She joins a strong team with a long history of supporting health care and community service in Phoenix.”

“I am excited to join the John C. Lincoln Network. The Foundation is uniquely positioned to support both medical excellence and community service programs. Philanthropy and community partnerships will continue to play an important role in our success,” said Mintz.

The John C. Lincoln Health Network has 85 years of history in the north Phoenix community, providing medical care through its North Mountain and Deer Valley hospitals, 20 physician practices and specialty centers and its Desert Mission Food Bank, Children’s Dental Clinic, Community Health Center, Marley House Behavioral Health Clinic, Lincoln Learning Center, Neighborhood Development and Adult Day Health Care. The Foundation helps support these efforts through volunteer and donor activities and two special events a year. Last year, the Night of Gold Ball and Lincoln Guild Invitational Gold Tournament together raised almost $500,000, and the Network served more than 100,000 people.

“As the philanthropic arm of our organization, the Foundation’s mission is to support health care and community services provided through the John C. Lincoln Health Network,” said Rhonda Forsyth, president and CEO of John C. Lincoln Health Network. “We’re proud of what our organization has accomplished over the past 85 years, and we look forward to continuing to grow our services in the challenging years ahead. Marcia will help us build an even stronger organization that stays true to our mission, so we can continue to help the people of Phoenix achieve the highest level of well-being possible.”
