BALTIMORE, MD.  The Mt. Washington Pediatric Foundation, Inc., an advisory board of Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) announced today that four new board members have been selected to serve on the organization’s board of directors. These new members include a pediatrician, an active volunteer and two business leaders. They were confirmed at the annual meeting in June, and will help further the hospital’s mission to provide the highest quality patient care programs for infants, children and adolescents. The Foundation board raises, receives, invests and administers funds in support of this mission. 

The new board members are: Rachel Bloom, Travis Ganunis, MD, Thomas New and Adam Pattisall. Their terms began on July 1, 2016.

Rachel Bloom graduated from the University of Maryland. She has held professional positions with T. Rowe Price and volunteer positions with Garrison Forest School, Gilman School, The Associated, Brown Memorial Tutoring Program and Days of Taste. She is a member of the MWPH Storybook Gala committee.

Travis Ganunis, MD is a pediatrician at Pavilion Pediatrics located in Lutherville. He received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and is a member of the American Board of Pediatrics. He has been practicing for 20 years and worked at MWPH after completing his residency.

Thomas New is the Chief Operating Officer at Kelly Wealth Management (KWM) in Hunt Valley. Prior to joining KWM, he spent 15 years with Morgan Stanley. At KWM, New serves as the co-chair of KWM Cares, a charitable giving foundation established in 2015. KWM has been actively involved with MWPH as both a sponsor of the Storybook Gala and in providing volunteers to the hospital. 

Adam Pattisall is the President and CEO of IncrediTek, a Belcamp, MD company that plans, builds and operates data networks. He founded the company in 2004 and has grown the organization from one employee to 43 dedicated professionals operating nationwide today. IncrediTek has supported MWPH as the title sponsor for the charity golf tournament for two years. 

Ann Eliasberg Betten, chair of the Foundation board and the granddaughter of the hospital’s founder thanked those who have served on the board and welcomed new members. “Serving on the board of a mission-driven organization like ours requires time, dedication and commitment to the children of Maryland. I am so pleased to welcome Rachel, Travis, Tom and Adam to share in our work and continue our support of the hospital.” 

“We serve more than 8,000 patients a year, many with complex medical needs and in need of financial assistance,” said Sheldon Stein, President and CEO of MWPH. “We are very fortunate to have these leaders working in partnership with the organization on behalf of these children.”
