Andrea Bradley became president and CEO of Palm Healthcare Foundation in November 2012. Since then, she has led the foundation in launching its Healthier Together initiative, a long-term, community-driven, place-based funding strategy designed to solve the community’s most complex healthcare issues, neighborhood by neighborhood. Healthier Together seeks to maximize impact by allocating $1 million each to six selected communities over five to seven years for collaborative health-related projects within the foundation’s priority areas: diabetes prevention and management, family caregiving, and behavioral health. In 2014, the foundation announced its first two community initiatives: Healthier Jupiter and Healthier Delray Beach. In fall of 2015, two additional communities will be selected. Two additional communities will join the initiative in spring of 2016.
Prior to joining Palm Healthcare Foundation, Ms. Bradley served on the senior management team of Holy Cross Hospital, a 500+ bed, nonprofit hospital in South Florida, leading the development and marketing departments. Earlier in her career, Ms. Bradley served as the president and CEO of Women in Distress of Broward County, one of Florida’s largest domestic violence centers. Before joining the nonprofit field, Ms. Bradley was a practicing attorney with a background in estate planning and planned giving. She remains as a member of the Florida Bar.
