PRESIDENT & CEO, QUANTUM FOUNDATION, WEST PALM BEACH
The sale of the not-for-profit JFK Hospital 21 years ago created the original $125-million endowment for the Quantum Foundation, which has distributed $140 million in grant financing to public and non-profit organizations to improve community wellness in Palm Beach County while maintaining $150 million in endowment funds. Contributions from the fund helped Florida Atlantic University start its medical residency program; another donation mobilized a community wellness and revitalization effort in West Palm Beach.
