The director of Haywood Regional Medical Center’s Foundation and Corporate Communications Department for the past 20 years, Robin Tindall-Taylor, has resigned her position at HRMC to take the position of the new executive director of the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation.
“Over the past 20 years, HRMC has been my professional home away from home, providing career fulfillment and heartfelt rewards. There were many occasions of rising to achievements and overcoming challenges, and these were made possible only through the great work of HRMC employees, physicians, board members and volunteers,” Tindall-Taylor said.
Tindall-Taylor, who has been with Haywood Regional since 1989, married Walker Taylor, the manager of Cedar Creek Racquet Club, in 2007 and the two have a home in Cashiers. She continued to maintain a second home near Haywood Regional Medical Center.
“I have been living in a dual community situation. For that reason, I was hoping to improve the balance in my life by working within my new neighborhood. The position at Highlands-Cashiers opened and I applied,” Tindall-Taylor said.
While at Haywood Regional, Tindall-Taylor planned and directed capital campaigns for the health and fitness center and expansion of the emergency department. She also established a named endowment scholarship fund for current and prospective nurses and allied health care employees.
Since the mid 1990s more than $10 million has been raised for the Foundation under her leadership.
“It is with great sadness that I have accepted Robin’s resignation from HRMC. She will be greatly missed as a part of my leadership team. Conversely, I am so excited for Robin, because in the end the most important thing in life is your loved ones,” said Mike Poore, president and chief executive officer for Haywood Regional Medical Center.
“We are very fortunate to be able to bring someone of Robin’s experience and skills to the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation,” said Earle Mauldin, chairman of the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation Board. In addition to her proven abilities in the field of healthcare philanthropy, it’s an added benefit that she is already familiar with our area.”
Tindall-Taylor will assume her duties at Highlands-Cashiers Hospital July 13.
