Anne Rasmussen, System VP & Chief Development Officer

VANCOUVER, Wash. – PeaceHealth recently announced that Anne Rasmussen has been named system vice president and chief development officer.

Anne joined PeaceHealth in 2012 as the director of development for PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center and Whatcom Hospice Foundation, and has been serving as the chief development officer for the Northwest network since 2016. Among her many accomplishments, Anne has played a critical role in accelerating the Stronger Together fundraising campaign, which is a generational investment to transform our community hospital into northwest Washington's premier 21st-century medical center.

“Philanthropy plays a critical role in our evolution as a person-first, community-centered organization,” said Mike Dwyer, executive vice president of strategy and community health. “As the system vice president and chief development officer, Anne will lead the philanthropic work of PeaceHealth, supporting our community Foundations by leading initiatives for planned giving, major donor gifts and research, private grant development and corporate relations.”

Anne was preceded by Pat Modrzejewski, who is retiring from the role she occupied on an interim basis since 2019. Pat graciously agreed to leave her first retirement to join PeaceHealth, and helped advance a culture of gratitude where PeaceHealth supporters and stakeholders – donors, Board members, clinicians, caregivers and community members – are treated as investors, and creating a shared vision for PeaceHealth’s future.
