Three new board members are joining the Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) Foundation, further strengthening the bridge between YRMC outreach efforts and community health and healing. The Foundation has helped to strengthen such outreach since its conception in 1999.

“We are pleased to welcome individuals who are so deeply committed to our community’s health and prosperity,” said Board of Directors Chair Dave Barrett. All three of these new members personify an exemplary life of service: Mary Mallory, Arabinda K. Pani, MD and Pierre R. Tibi, MD.

Mary Mallory serves on the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors and has extensive board experience at both the local and state level.

Dr. Pani is YRMC’s Chief of Staff and has served as a YRMC Emergency Department physician since 2009. He is widely regarded for his integrity, dedication, and leadership throughout the YRMC organization.

Dr. Tibi is a philanthropist and fundraiser who was instrumental in establishing the James Family Heart Center. A longtime supporter of the Foundation, he has sponsored and organized the annual Crawfest event which benefits YRMC’s Partners for Healthy Students program.

These new members join existing board members: President and CEO John Amos, Dave Barrett, Douglas Bristol, YRMC Foundation Executive Director Robbie Nicol, Harvey Skoog and William Sonsin.

The Gift of Giving

All board members serve as volunteers, generously donating their time and expertise to raising funds for the YRMC Foundation. One hundred percent of these funds go directly to the community—to helping those in need within western Yavapai County.

There are various ways to give to the YRMC Foundation. For example cash, securities or real estate, made outright or through a will or trust. Or maybe a donation in memory of a loved one.

Donors can even specify how they want their gifts to be used. Perhaps a YRMC program or service which has directly impacted them or a loved one. Or to honor a personal commitment to education or the advancement of medical technology. The Foundation has many available funds.​
