WHO WE ARE
To mark our humble beginning, Steve Steinberg and Ross Ranieri gathered a dozen or so select healthcare industry veterans to participate in a day of golf and an evening of fine dining. The event had no name, no pomp, and no circumstance – but the idea was a sound one: camaraderie amongst a select group of healthcare industry veterans. Who could argue, right? As with many good ideas, the concept flourished and the numbers multiplied. The events became a regular occurrence held each year at both the ASHE PDC and the HCD conferences. Those ‘in the know’ looked forward to the conferences not just for the educational session or the speakers or the parties (well ok maybe the parties), but as a way to bond yet again with the brethren that today is known simply as “The Commission.”
In recent years, The Commission found it’s real calling with the help of a little dog named Cheech and his little owner, Peter Flach. We were awed by their generosity toward the many Children’s Hospitals they visited, and we wanted to participate. In 2016, with a small but meaningful donation to Rady Children’s Hospital, The Commission made it part of our mission to GIVE BACK at each event. And give back we have. With each subsequent event, we have carried on Cheech’s (RIP) calling by raising and donating more and more each year.
As The Commission nears its ten year anniversary, we can say - without equivocation - that many lucky souls have had the honor of participating in the events, and many benefactors have helped along the way. To all of you, we simply say “Thank You!”
-Bill Foulkes, one of those select few Founding Members of The Commission | 2018
WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
Stemming from an altruistic desire to directly impact the health and well-being of children near and far, The Commission has made philanthropy a deeply rooted piece of our mission. Our generous members and corporate sponsors strive to continue to strengthen the Children's hospitals within the communities in which we live and work. With that, The Commission has donated more than $10,000 to various charities from coast to coast since our inception.
With a special niche in healthcare design and construction, a key goal of The Commission is to create an environment where we can cultivate productive relationships with our industry peers. Using ASHE PDC and the Healthcare Design Conference as a backdrop for our gatherings, The Commission coordinates a variety of events to encourage member participation and industry outreach.
Whether it's golf, dinner, or some other form of social outing, The Commission puts great emphasis on developing relationships that extend far beyond the office. Our members have found organic mentoring relationships within our group, creating opportunities for both personal and professional growth.
