The Hospital Sisters of St. Francis Foundation announced that Emily Wilson, marketing specialist with the HSHS Southern Illinois Division, has accepted a new position as the major gift officer supporting HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese, HSHS Holy Family Hospital in Greenville, and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland. Wilson began her new role on Nov. 25.

Wilson has been with Hospital Sisters Health System since 2012.  Previously, she served as fund development manager for the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois from 2010-12, and as community relations and development assistant at Anderson Hospital in Maryville from 2005-2010.  She is a graduate of McKendree University and received training in major gift fundraising at the Lilly School of Philanthropy at Indiana University.
