Meet the Foundation Board

Ronald Wathen, Chair

Saint Agnes has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. From childhood trips and emergency room visits for stiches in my chin, to the birth of my three amazing children – Saint Agnes has always been there for me and my family. That is why I take much pride in serving as the 2015 Board Chairman of the Saint Agnes Foundation.

The Foundation Board includes many talented leaders, all committed to serving our community and ensuring the Medical Center remains a healthcare leader in the Valley, now and for decades to come.

As a Board member, our commitment is to serve you – you are at the heart of everything Saint Agnes does.  

The generous support received allows for new developments in patient care, private room expansions and state-of-the-art equipment purchases. Your philanthropic dollars ensure Saint Agnes has the top Heart & Vascular Program in the region, a state-of-the-art Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, and many other outstanding patient-centered programs and services.

The reason our healing ministry exists … is because of you.  

So, as the 2015 Foundation Board Chair, I plan to work tirelessly on your behalf. Together, we will build a healthy future our community deserves, honoring the legacy of care established by the Sisters of the Holy Cross over 85 years ago.   

On behalf of our entire Foundation Board, we thank you for putting your trust in Saint Agnes. Our first charge is to get you involved! To learn more about the many different ways you can support the Saint Agnes mission, please call Saint Agnes Foundation, (559) 450-2040, or email  

Let's get busy!
