Treasure Coast Community Health welcomes Elizabeth Thomason BSN, RN, MA as Foundation Director, effective April 4, 2022.
“Elizabeth brings a strong sense of community and fundraising expertise along with a nursing background. She will make an immediate impact on donor relations and support while upholding the TCCH mission,” Vicki Soulé, TCCH CEO said. Thomason’s skill set includes strategic planning and operations, capital campaigns, and grant applications and outcomes. Her medical experience will be instrumental in helping the public at large understand the impact TCCH provides to the overall health of more than 26,000 individuals in Indian River County.
“TCCH has such a good reputation within the community. I had the opportunity to volunteer with TCCH when COVID-19 vaccines first became available. I volunteered on weekends giving vaccines in Gifford and Fellsmere. It was a rewarding experience doing something positive in uncertain times,” Thomason said. Her nursing background, combined with over 20 years working with nonprofits is a perfect combination of skills to bring to the organization.
One of Thomason’s initial goals is to establish a board of directors that can help promote TCCH within the community, and then to increase the donor base over time.
“The scope of services and medical staff are very impressive. Indian River County is very fortunate to have such a comprehensive and affordable healthcare organization,” Thomason added.
TCCH is a nonprofit, providing comprehensive, high-quality health care to more than 26,000 insured, underinsured and uninsured patients. TCCH, Indian River County’s only Federally Qualified Health Center, has eight locations providing medical, vision, dental, behavioral health, and pharmacy service.
