In our short tenure, the Foundation has grown and helped the Hospital on numerous initiatives raising much needed funds annually to support the mission and outreach including Hospice of Nelson County, the Flaget Cancer Center and the Nelson County Community Clinic.
We have a great board and have been blessed with strong leadership from our members and feel that Heidi will be a great fit for us. We know the Bardstown community will give her a warm welcome as she relocates here and makes Kentucky her new home.”
President of the Flaget Memorial Hospital Foundation, Barry A.

Because Heidi is very familiar with Flaget Memorial Hospital, the Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation staff and KentuckyOne Health, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her new role. Heidi played a significant part in the grant funding received from the Louisville Affiliate of Susan G. Komen and has visited Bardstown on several occasions. So many great things are happening at Flaget and her leadership and experience will continue our momentum and culture of philanthropy in Bardstown.”
