Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester has tapped a nonprofit veteran to lead the team and oversee the organization’s operations.
Kelly McCormick-Sullivan, who most recently served as the group’s interim president, brings two decades of leadership experience to her new role as chapter president. Prior to joining RMHC, McCormick-Sullivan served as founder and president of CommuniCare Partners, an organization focused on creating solutions to the “people part” of doing business. In that role, she provided advisory services for executives, senior leaders, physicians and nonprofit boards in a variety of areas.
“We are confident Kelly’s track record for strong leadership, experience, integrity and passions is a great match for RMHC’s mission, staff, board, partners and families,” RMHC Rochester board chairman Erin Tolefree said in a statement. “Under Kelly’s leadership, RMHC will continue to advance its mission and build on the exciting initiatives and partnerships happening at Ronald McDonald House.”
McCormick-Sullivan spent four years as president and CEO of Pluta Cancer Center, where she managed a $20 million operating budget and led a team of 50 colleagues. She also has served in leadership roles at Carestream Health and Rochester Gas & Electric.
Since 1999, RMHC has provided a supportive “home away from home” for more than 10,000 families of children receiving health care in the Rochester community and to support related efforts that improve the health and wellbeing of children.
Rochester’s chapter is part of a network of nearly 350 houses in 38 countries.
