On behalf of UCP of Orange County’s Board of Directors, I am delighted to announce that we have appointed Dr. Ramin Baschshi, M.D. as our new President and Chief Executive Officer effective January 2, 2018.
We are fortunate to have someone of Dr. Baschshi’s background and experience join UCP-OC. She has served as Chief Operating Officer of Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles since June 2010. During her tenure, she transformed the wish granting process, financials, operational management and board development during the Chapter’s rebirth. Her medical training connects to the lives and needs of our families and their children, her strategic leadership experience at Memorial Care provides great insight into program development to serve families, and her fundraising experience at Make-A-Wish allows her to bring strong philanthropic management experience to our organization. We could not be more pleased!
Dr. Baschshi shared, “I am humbled and honored to be representing an organization that ensures children’s true potential, while strengthening the family unit. UCP-OC delivers comprehensive care and resources beyond the clinical environment to empower children and families’ success. My commitment is to enhance and create opportunities for UCP-OC to become a premier charity of choice in our community, while increasing referrals and support services. I look forward to new beginnings as I embark on this incredible journey with the team and the Board of Directors.”
We are excited to kick off 2018 with Ramin’s leadership and look forward to a year of growth and impact. Please watch for additional updates and opportunities to meet Ramin. Happy holidays!
Chairman, Board of Directors
