Ellen Haynes, formerly director of development at UT Southwestern Medical Center, has been named vice president of major gifts and corporate giving at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC). Haynes brings 18 years of health care fundraising experience to the hospital.
The appointment comes at a time when TSRHC has announced plans to build an ambulatory surgical center in Frisco, the first major satellite operation in the hospital’s 94-year history. “The hospital has a unique opportunity,” said TSRHC President and CEO Robert L. Walker. “As we expand access to care north, bringing on a knowledgeable and experienced development officer like Ellen will help us gain the support needed to serve more children with our world-class pediatric orthopaedic care.”
Haynes spent eight years as director of development at UT Southwestern, an institution closely aligned with TSRHC. All of the hospital’s orthopaedic surgeons hold faculty appointments at UT Southwestern. Haynes joined the TSRHC development team last July.
“I’m excited to join a team of this caliber and commitment and help grow its impact on children with orthopaedic needs,” she said. “Texas Scottish Rite Hospital is such an extraordinary place that makes the world a better place for children.”
At UT Southwestern, Haynes cultivated and expanded relationships with foundations, corporations and private donors. Before joining UT Southwestern in 2006, she was a senior account manager on the corporate relations health care team at the American Heart Association’s National Center.
Haynes earned a bachelor’s degree from Duke University, a master’s from Oberlin College and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.
