Christine M. Meola named vice president of development of L+M Healthcare

Thursday, May 14, 2020

New London, CT (May 14, 2020) – After a national search, L+M Healthcare has named Christine M. Meola to serve as vice president of development for L+M Healthcare, a member of Yale New Haven Health, that includes Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, Westerly Hospital, the Visiting Nurse Association of Southeastern Connecticut and other ambulatory services throughout the region. Her appointment is effective June 1.

In this new regional role, Meola will provide strategic direction, leadership, and daily management to the staff of the Lawrence + Memorial Hospital Development Office and the Westerly Hospital Foundation. She will be responsible for the development and fundraising activities of both hospitals, including direct response, major and planned giving, corporate and foundation relations, events and donor relations. Bill Stanley will begin a new role as vice president of government and community relations reporting to Christine.

“Christine is an experienced, performance-driven, development leader with a passion for innovative patient care,” said Patrick Green, president and CEO L+M Healthcare. “She is joining a team that is dedicated to supporting our regional strategy for eastern Connecticut and southern Rhode Island for our health care delivery network which enables us to provide extraordinary care for our patients, offer support programs, and enhance our facilities with state-of-the-art technologies that impact and save lives, close to home.”

Meola is an accomplished leader and seasoned fundraiser with extensive experience in both higher education and health care. She served as vice president for development and alumni relations at Pace University, executive director of the Columbus Citizens Foundation, director of development for NY-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and assistant vice president for development at Fordham University. Prior to joining L+M Healthcare, Meola, a former resident of Connecticut, served as a fundraising consultant for higher education in Michigan.

“Returning to health care fundraising has been a dream of mine for some time,” said Meola. “I am looking forward to working with Patrick, the outstanding leadership team and the development staff to further the work of building relationships within the community and advancing the mission of L+M Healthcare. This is a pivotal time in history where individuals and corporations who believe in philanthropy will be looking to support hospitals and health care.”

Meola earned a Master of Arts in sociology from Fordham University, Bronx, NY and a Bachelor of Science in psychology from the same institution.
