Marta McClintock was appointed Executive Director to lead the Island Health Foundation (IHF). McClintock brings 30 years of fundraising and non-profit experience to the position and was most recently the Executive Director of the Anacortes Schools Foundation.

McClintock will succeed Janie Crane, who served in the role for three years. Under Crane’s leadership, IHF raised nearly $2 million in 2023 and was able to fund the purchase of new diagnostic imaging technologies and hospital equipment. The Foundation also helped raise funds for the Emergency Services Project. This multi-faceted construction project will relocate the helipad to the hospital’s roof and update the main lobby and Emergency Department. IHF also funds support programs, including mental health, pastoral care, health education and more.

McClintock’s prior program management includes roles as Assistant Dean of Development for the College of Education at the University of Idaho, Senior Market Director for the American Heart Association in Memphis, Tennessee, and Senior Management Analyst for U.S. Navy Supply Management in Sicily, Italy.

With her two children now in college, McClintock said the time felt right to move to a full-time position. Having experienced the healthcare system personally (family), she knows the impact robust funding can have and feels she can make a real difference.

“I’ve always had a heart for health and human services, and working for the Foundation is a way for me to give back to my community,” McClintock said.

Chief Executive Officer Elise Cutter was impressed with McClintock’s leadership and connection to the community.

“Marta has extensive fundraising and management experience, and she’s deeply invested in our community. She’s a great fit for the Island Health Foundation. We’re thrilled to have her join our team,” Cutter said.

Island Health Foundation’s incoming Board President Elliott Johnson remarked that Marta’s expertise will help continue the momentum of the Foundation.

“Marta is joining the Foundation at a great moment in our history. Her vast experience and community ties will allow her to hit the ground running. The entire Board looks forward to working with her,” Johnson said.

McClintock, who will start her role in January, has high hopes for the Foundation and looks forward to continuing the excellent work that’s already happening.

“I’m excited to strengthen the collaboration between Island Health and the Anacortes School District around mental health, for example,” McClintock said. “I have a deep belief in community health and want to work to ensure excellent, affordable care remains close to home.”
