JACKSON, Wyo. — St. John’s Health Foundation is pleased to welcome a new Board Chair and five new board members, who will help advance the Foundation’s mission to secure philanthropic support for St. John’s Health.
Bob Pisano will officially step into the role of Chair at the first of the year, when current Chair, Bill Best, completes his two-year leadership term. In addition to a new Chair, the Foundation’s board will welcome three new directors: Gary Roubin, Hillary Munro and Jeff Flug and two returning directors: Chuck Fleischman and Liz Masek.
Meet the Chair:
Bob Pisano is a retired entertainment executive; having worked more than 30 years in Hollywood, and prior to that, he practiced law in Los Angeles and Paris.
He and his wife Carolyn have had a home in Jackson Hole for more than 30 years, and in recent years have established full-time residence here.
Bob has served as a Director of St. John’s Health Foundation since 2016.
Meet the Members:
Dr. Gary Roubin, MD, PhD is an internationally renowned interventional cardiologist, recognized for his groundbreaking work in the development of the first FDA-approved coronary stent, as well as in pioneering the techniques of carotid stenting and embolic protection devices.
Gary has published more than 250 papers and 225 abstracts in journals, edited three textbooks and contributed to other textbooks. His 30-year career has gained him a formidable reputation in the field of cardiac care.
He lives with his wife, Peta, and his five children between their homes in Jackson Hole and Birmingham, Ala.
Hillary Munro moved to Jackson in 1992 with her family to ski for a year, but after a few months her parents decided to make it home. After returning from college in 2000, she worked at the Jackson Hole Land Trust in the Stewardship Department.
Creativity runs deep, so after many years with the Land Trust she pivoted from science and opened a gift and lifestyle store, Bet the Ranch, in 2008. She recently closed the doors to focus on her family; husband Mac, daughter Sawyer (6), son Miller (5), two pups, two ponies and a small flock of chickens.
Because she can’t sit still, she founded Graze Alpine Living in 2015, a destination for inspiring décor, food, gifting and design. Hillary previously served as a member of St. John’s Health Foundation’s PULSE advisory committee.
Jeffrey Flug is the former president of Union Square Hospitality Group and board director of Shake Shack Enterprises. Jeff has over 25 years of leadership and management experience primarily in the financial industry, as well as in the non-profit sector.
Jeff also served as CEO and Executive Director for Millennium Promise, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to end extreme poverty and malaria in Africa.
Jeff and his wife, Sheryl, have two daughters.
Chuck Fleischman is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist. He is the former President, COO and CFO of Digene Corporation, where he created an emerging growth, biotechnology medical device company to develop, manufacture and commercialize molecular diagnostic tests for human infectious diseases and cancers.
Digene changed medical practice and standards of care in cervical cancer screening and prevention.
Chuck has climbed, skied and rafted all over the world. He and his wife Lisa raised their children outside of Washington, D.C. and they now live in Teton Village. Chuck first joined St. John’s Health Foundation Board in 2009.
Liz Masek has a background in patient advocacy and has also worked in public relations. She received a Master’s degree from Sarah Lawrence College in health advocacy.
Liz has served at St. John’s Health in several capacities, working with the oncology department and also as a spiritual care counselor. Liz was appointed to St. John’s Board of Trustees in 2014.
