Gifford has hired Kathrine Baumann as its new Community Relations Coordinator. Baumann is looking forward to using her extensive background in customer service and volunteerism to serve the needs of the community.
Baumann moved to the Randolph area five years ago and immediately became immersed in the community. As a youth group mentor at Bethany Church, she worked with and got to know many of the community’s younger members.
“I’m excited to give back to a community that has given so much to me,” Baumann said.
Gifford hosted a successful listening tour through several towns last summer and plans on hosting another tour in 2023. The tours are opportunities for people to share community health needs with our senior leaders and board members. The information received in those gatherings influences how Gifford will operate this year and into the future. Part of Baumann’s role at Gifford is to address those needs and help find a resolution.
“I have spent most of my career helping others, but now I have the unique opportunity to be in a position where I can really make an impact on people’s health and well-being,” Baumann said. “That’s something I do not take lightly.”
Baumann’s family has a special connection to Gifford. Her daughter was born at Gifford’s birthing center and her husband’s family are life-long patients. Like many in our community, they have received support from Gifford’s annual Last Mile fundraiser.
Baumann replaces Katja Evans who is now Gifford’s new Blueprint Program Manager.
