Begin named chair of R.I. Hospital Foundation board

Posted 1/20/14

PROVIDENCE – Roger Begin was recently named chairman by the Rhode Island Hospital Foundation board of trustees.

Timothy J. Babineau, president, Rhode Island Hospital, and chief executive officer, Lifespan, expressed gratitude to Ellen Collis, who recently completed her term as chair, and said that Begin’s selection was a strong one.

“As the state’s leading medical facility and an acclaimed academic medical center,” Babineau said, “the foundation board plays a critical role in helping us remain on the cutting edge of medicine, research and education. We look forward to Roger’s leadership in the coming years.”

A lifelong Rhode Islander, Begin served as the state’s General Treasurer and Lieutenant Governor in the 1980s and early 1990s before taking executive leadership positions at Fleet Bank, N.A., and Bank of America. Before being named chair, he was a member of the Rhode Island Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees. He is also a member of the Hasbro Children’s Hospital advisory council. He is senior director for business development with BNY Mellon Wealth Management.

“To become chairman of the foundation board is both an honor and an opportunity,” said Begin. “As an ambassador of the hospital, I want to be a voice that helps people better understand how fortunate we are to have such an incredible resource as Rhode Island Hospital in our community.”
