WILMINGTON, NC – New Hanover Regional Medical Center has announced that Schorr Davis, director of business development at NHRMC, will assume interim leadership of the NHRMC Foundation starting Oct. 9.
She will fill this role following the departure of current Vice President of Development and Executive Director of the Foundation, Adam Cook, on Oct. 8. Cook is leaving NHRMC for an opportunity in the Charlotte area.
Davis became director of business development at NHRMC in 2010. She led the effort for the hospital to merge with SEAHEC and has served as lead analyst for expanding services in new markets.
“I’m honored that the senior leadership at New Hanover Regional Medical Center and the NHRMC Foundation are willing to give me this opportunity and I’m thrilled to accept it,” Davis said. “I’m looking forward to learning more about how I can be of value to the Foundation, supporting its mission, and serving our patients, families and community.”
She received a bachelor’s degree in human and organizational development from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Davis also earned a master’s degree in public health, and a master’s degree in public administration, both from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Before coming to Wilmington, she worked in healthcare consulting with PricewaterhouseCoopers and later, institutional sales and trading with Carolina Capital Markets, Inc. In Wilmington, prior to joining NHRMC, she worked in pharmaceutical sales for Pfizer, Inc., and physician relations for MedCath Corporation.
Cook leaves behind a strong legacy of success. During his tenure, the NHRMC Foundation Gala and the employee campaign both raised record amounts.
“We congratulate Adam on this new career opportunity and wish him success,” said Bill Rudisill, chairman of the NHRMC Foundation Board of Directors. “He accomplished a great deal in a short time and will be missed by all of us. We welcome Schorr to this leadership role and will support her in keeping the momentum started under Adam’s watch.”
