John Marcy, an accomplished professional in the field of hospital fundraising, has been named Vice President for Development of the University of Maryland Medical System. Marcy will be responsible for such fundraising activities as annual giving, major gifts, planned giving, special events, and the daily operation of a comprehensive development department.
"John Marcy has a solid track record of success in his 27 years of experience in health care development and management," says Morton I Rapoport, M.D., President and CEO of the University of Maryland Medical System. "Fundraising support is a key ingredient for us to fulfill our mission of providing excellent health care for the citizens of Maryland. We look forward to John's expertise and leadership," adds Dr. Rapoport.

The Medical System serves patients from throughout the Baltimore area, Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region.
Since 1994, Marcy has been the Senior Vice President for Development at the Saint Barnabas Health Care System's two southern New Jersey hospitals and has served as the chief operating officer and chief development officer of two foundations: Community Medical Center Foundation in Toms River, N.J., and Kimball Medical Center Foundation in Lakewood, N.J.

Previously, from 1988 to 1994, he served as Vice President of Development and Communications at the Lankenau Hospital, a teaching hospital affiliated with Thomas Jefferson University in Wynnewood, P.A., where his accomplishments included launching and completing a capital campaign to construct a new research center.
