The Foundation for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth (BID-Plymouth) has named Duxbury resident Mary Ellen Lawrence as its new chairwoman. As chair of the Foundation, she also serves on the hospital’s board of directors.
“For more than a decade, I’ve been humbled to volunteer alongside the physicians and staff that care for patients at BID-Plymouth with excellence and compassion,” Lawrence said. “It’s an exhilarating time to be a part of the hospital’s family, and I’m honored to take on this new role.”
Lawrence worked as a banker before retiring from the Wealth Management Division of BankBoston. During her banking career, she was affiliated with South Shore Chamber of Commerce, South Shore Women’s Business network, and the Norfolk & Plymouth Estate Planning Council. She has served on the board of South Shore Women’s Center.
Today she is an active volunteer with the hospital, Cranberry Hospice and the South Shore Conservatory Board of Overseers. Lawrence lives in Duxbury with her husband, Peter.
“Mary Ellen was a natural choice for this important position,” said Peter Holden, President and CEO of BID-Plymouth. “Her enthusiastic volunteer leadership on behalf of Cranberry Hospice and Palliative Care’s Fragile Footprints program, a program for medically fragile children and their families, has made such a difference in so many lives. We are fortunate to include her in our family.”
