Barada to lead Bloomington Hospital Foundation

New president's first priorities to listen, learn and understand

Jon Barada has been named the new president of the Bloomington Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of IU Health Bloomington Hospital.

Barada, who began working at his new job July 29, replaces Chris Molloy, who left that position in March to become the new vice president for university advancement at the University of Indianapolis.

“This is a great opportunity to build on the past successes and great teamwork of our donors and the foundation team,” Barada said. “The fundamentals are here for even more success, and I am honored and humbled to be joining a great team that has such a commitment to the mission here.”

Barada said he will spend the first 90 days focusing on learning, listening and assessing.

“It’s like Stephen Covey wrote in his book, ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ - ‘Seek first to understand,’” he said. “I’ll be having a lot of conversations and asking questions to understand the community dynamics, and meeting with donors and thanking them for their past support.”

A joint statement prepared by Mark Moore, president and CEO of IU Health Bloomington Hospital, and Lee Carmichael, chairman of the Bloomington Hospital Foundation’s board of directors, said, “Jon was selected after a thorough and deliberate search for an individual that demonstrated both the strong appeal of our mission, as well as the board and leadership commitment to building upon our established philanthropic strategy.”

Barada; his wife, Brooke, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and their three children have found temporary housing in Bloomington and have put their Indianapolis-area home on the market.

“Brooke has not yet found employment outside the home,” Barada said. “She has been the chief executive officer of transition - getting the kids enrolled in school, putting the house up for sale, finding housing here. Once things get settled, she will explore different opportunities.”
