Myles Fish Myles Fish

Pardee UNC Health Care announced that Myles Fish has been named as the executive director for the Pardee Hospital Foundation.

 

Fish joined Pardee in June 2020 after completing his task as the director of stewardship from First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro.
“I’ve come to Pardee Hospital Foundation because the trauma of COVID – 19 renewed my desire to participate in healthcare. I wanted a place I could believe in and an opportunity to make a difference,” he said. “That is what I found at Pardee. This is a wonderful, nationally ranked hospital, in a beautiful and thriving community. I am honored to be able to represent this hospital to this community as together we improve the health of the communities we serve.”

Fish, who has a master's degree in divinity and a doctorate,  has worked in non-profit settings throughout his more than 30-year career. His experience includes helping organizations focused on land conservancy, children’s issues, human trafficking, disaster response and educational developments along with healthcare sectors. For nine years, he led International Aid and helped to provide healthcare focused disaster relief all over the world. In this role, he actively collaborated on training opportunities for physicians in West Africa and initiated a global product launch for the Hydraid water filtration system. In addition, he led the effort as International Aid raised tens of millions of dollars to rebuild all 32 hospitals damaged by the 2005 tsunami in Banda Aceh Indonesia.
In his role with Pardee, Fish will be responsible for generating support to assist Pardee in carrying out its mission of providing quality health care to the people of Western North Carolina. His primary goal is to support the needs of the hospital by creating meaningful giving opportunities that will enable supporters to express and fulfill their values through their giving.
