Appointment kick-starts Reading foundation


Reading Health System now has its new Reading Health System Foundation up and running with the appointment of Katherine Thornton as president of the nonprofit entity.

The foundation was created to guide the fundraising and development of many of the health system’s needs.

“For nearly 150 years, Reading Health System has provided the highest quality care to our community,” said Reading Health System Foundation board chair Chris Kraras. “This foundation will ensure that Reading Health will continue its mission to improve and sustain the health of our community, ‘Advancing Health, and Transforming Lives.’ ”

Raising money to do that is at the core of the foundation’s mission, according to Thornton.
