Confluence Health announces new vice president of philanthropy


WENATCHEE - Confluence Health announced today that Suzanne Carté-Cocroft will soon be joining the organization as the new vice president of philanthropy. While a new title, this new vice president position replaces the role previously held by the foundation executive trustee, a position that works to lead and guide the Confluence Health Foundation.

A native Alaskan, Carté-Cocroft most recently served as the foundation president and region chief philanthropy officer for the Providence Alaska Foundation based in Anchorage, Alaska. An experienced leader with over 25 years in working with nonprofit organizations on board oversight, team building, strategic planning, and fund development, she brings a wealth of experience to the position, including previous work in the telecommunications industry and serving on the boards of the Alaska Children’s Alliance, Alaska Children’s Trust, and The Foraker Group operations board.

“The Foundation is looking forward to Suzanne joining the organization and bringing with her years of experience in developing lasting relationships with donors and empowering her team to support local health systems and communities,” commented Steven Neher, president of the Confluence Health Foundation board of trustees.

In her new position, Carté-Cocroft will be leading the Confluence Health Foundation. The Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Confluence Health and works to benefit the activities of the not-for-profit healthcare system. A 501(c)(3) charitable organization established in 1978, the Foundation has been a crucial component in Confluence Health’s efforts to support the health and well-being of the North Central Washington community for over 45 years, helping keep superior healthcare close to home.

Carté-Cocroft will be stepping into the position held previously by Abel Noah, foundation executive trustee for Confluence Health, who will be retiring in January 2024 after nearly 20 years of service to Confluence Health.

“I am excited to have Suzanne continue to carry on and build upon all the Foundation has accomplished over the years and am confident that she will do great things in this new position,” remarked Dr. Andrew Jones, CEO of Confluence Health. “We look forward to the leadership and vision Suzanne will bring in this important role, helping us to enhance and support Confluence Health’s ability to provide local care by and for our community close to home.”
