The Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation has named four new trustees for the coming year. Joining the board are Dr. Ramona Crowley Goldberg, Lisa Garner, Sandra Holler, Brian Lazarchick and Brian Martin. The members can serve up to two three-year terms. They join 10 other community volunteers who are currently serving.
“Each of these individuals bring special talents to the foundation board,” said CMH Foundation Executive Director Theresa Johnson. “Some have worked with the hospital and its foundation for years while others are new to the county and bring a fresh perspective.”
She went on to add, “It’s an exciting time for the hospital and I’m thrilled they’re willing to be a part of this effort to fulfil our goals over the next few years.”
Since the foundation was developed in 1989, it has generated more than $8 million in philanthropic support for the hospital. Most recently, it helped fund state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology and a mobile health center that will bring essential primary care and dental services to underserved areas of our community.
Dr. Crowley Goldberg recently retired after a 44-year career as an educator. She frequently donates her talents as a soloist to benefit local charitable endeavors including the College of Southern Maryland, Calvert Hospice and the hospital. She has been a dedicated advocate for the breast center named for her late husband Dr. Sheldon E. Goldberg at CMH.
Garner, owner of Garner Exteriors in Dunkirk, is passionate about community service and brings extensive fundraising and event planning experience. She has served on the hospital’s ball committee since 2011 and is co-chairing the black tie gala this year. She has also been active with the Southern Anne Arundel Chamber of Commerce, Calvert Hospice, the Chesapeake Bay Grady White Club and United Way.
A longtime local resident and great-grandmother, Holler has expertise in education, mental health and the juvenile system. She is currently a court-approved mediator for Southern Maryland. Her many volunteer activities include the Calvert County Library, Calvert Hospice, the Festival of Trees and the Calvert County Juvenile Drug Court.
Lazarchick is a certified safety professional and is currently managing director of Safety and Technical Training at SMECO. A decorated veteran, he retired from the Air Force in 2007 and went on to earn a bachelor and master degrees in occupational safety and health.
Martin, who specializes in recruiting for restaurants and the hospitality industry, is a familiar face to many families in the community having coached soccer for more than a decade for the county’s Parks and Recreation leagues and more recently the varsity team at Huntingtown High School.
