Michele Thomas Dole has been named CEO of the Indianapolis-based Community Health Network Foundation, the not-for-profit
organization that raises money for Community’s hospitals and health initiatives.
Dole, 39, who most recently was a wealth adviser to physicians and health care professionals at JP Morgan Chase bank in Indianapolis, will begin her new position April 12.
“I’m honored to have been selected to lead the foundation during a historic time of health care reform,” Dole said in a written statement. “Now, more than ever, the generous gifts that the foundation receives are vitally important to supporting patient access and convenience, as well as health care innovation.”
Dole is a certified financial planner. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Purdue University and a master’s in higher education administration from Indiana University.
She has previously worked as as an officer at Fifth Third Bank and as development director for the IU Foundation. She is an adjunct faculty member for both The Fund Raising School and the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at IU’s Center on Philanthropy.
