The trustees of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation continue a tradition of service, stewardship, and progressive thinking begun by those who guided JHF's predecessor, Montefiore Hospital, which was founded by the Jewish community of southwestern Pennsylvania in 1908.

They are leaders in southwestern Pennsylvania's Jewish community, and in the region's community at large, and bring perspectives and expertise from the public, business, non-profit, educational and healthcare sectors.
