Ms. Kathleen Pacurar

Term:

Since July 2010

Profile:

Ms. Kathleen Pacurar is the CEO and President of San Diego Hospice and The Institute for Palliative Medicine.

Leadership Statement:

I would like to express my gratitude to all of you: the community-at-large, our donors, our board of directors, our staff and volunteers, especially the patients and families who have entrusted us with their care. I am thrilled and honored to lead an organization that is truly transforming healthcare through innovative programs and services that improve quality of life.   Because of the important work conducted here, greater numbers of patient and families are discovering that hospice is a life-affirming alternative in improving quality of life, effectively easing pain, and compassionately caring for patients and loved ones.   Many have seen first-hand what a difference hospice care makes. San Diego Hospice was the first hospice programs in San Diego County, established in 1977. Today, most experts saw we are internationally recognized as a leader in this field. We are a community asset that San Diegans can be proud of.   Over the years, our community has generously supported our programs and services. Tax-deductible gifts of all sizes added up to more than $7.6 million in financial support last year. In addition, more than 750 volunteers contributed 90,000 hours of enthusiasm and energy annually, saving the organization about $1.4 million every year.   Today, when private insurers are paying less of the costs for providing care, and we’re facing continuing cutbacks in government programs like Medicare and Medi-Cal, generous community donations are more important than ever. Your support and contributions matter in improving quality of life for our patients and their families every day.   Your loyalty means so much to us and your continued support is more important than ever. Thank you for your generosity, dedication and friendshinationally and globally.   Sincerely,   Kathleen Pacurar President and CEO

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

June 2012)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
