Courtney O’Neill, a longtime Nantucket resident and veteran of Nantucket Cottage Hospital, has been named executive director of the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation by President and CEO Dr. Margot Hartmann.
O’Neill, who began her career at NCH in 2007, has worked her way up through the organization and worn nearly every hat within the Foundation, including her most recent role as associate director. As executive director, O’Neill will manage the operations of the hospital’s development office, including community outreach, fundraising, and events, such as the annual Boston Pops on Nantucket concert.
Every year the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation generates more than $4 million for the hospital through The NCH Fund, the annual fundraising appeal, as well as events like the Pops. These funds bridge the gap between the hospital’s operating expenses and revenue, and allow for strategic investments in programs and services to improve patient care.
“Courtney’s dedication and commitment to the Hospital and its mission is unquestioned, as reflected in the high regard of her colleagues,” Hartmann said. “Under her leadership, I know the Foundation will continue to flourish and support the Hospital in new and extraordinary ways.”
The Nantucket Cottage Hospital family is deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Harvey.
Robin had an unforgettable spirit, and she gave so much of herself to the island. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, business-owner and community volunteer who shared her time and talents with Nantucket Cottage Hospital in many ways. We join the rest of Nantucket in mourning her passing, and our thoughts are with the Harvey family.
