BOSTON – Hebrew SeniorLife (HSL), the largest non-profit provider of senior health care and senior living communities in New England, has named Hinda Marcus as Chair of the organization’s Board of Directors. Marcus has been a devoted volunteer leader at HSL for 20 years, having recently served on the HSL Board as Chair Elect and on the Research, Health Care Services and Development Committees.
“The landscape for health care, and senior care in particular, is changing rapidly,” said Lou Woolf, President and CEO, Hebrew SeniorLife. “Hinda is an experienced leader with a passion for our mission and an eye on innovation. These qualities will serve Hebrew SeniorLife well as we push to improve the quality of life for a growing number of seniors and their families.”
A Harvard Medical School affiliate, HSL serves more than 3,000 residents and patients daily in its eight senior living and health care sites around Boston and impacts many more around the globe through the work of its Institute for Aging Research.
Marcus is the President and CEO of Arnold Industries, a Canton, MA-based distribution company specializing in industrial fasteners, mechanical components and electronic hardware. She is also manager of Arnold Management LLC which owns Arnold Industries Cork Ltd. and Arnold Industries Shanghai Ltd.
“As someone whose family has received care at Hebrew SeniorLife, and as a long-time volunteer, I’ve seen how committed this organization’s leaders and staff are to providing best-in-class senior services,” said Marcus. “I’m honored to be taking on this role and look forward to engaging more with the community to expand our continuum of care and increase philanthropic support.”
Marcus’ dedication to Boston’s non-profit communities extends beyond her involvement at HSL.
