Communications Officer

NYHealth is a private and independent foundation dedicated to improving the health of all New Yorkers, especially people of color and others who have been historically marginalized. NYHealth began operations in 2006; today, it has approximately $300 million in assets. The Foundation is committed to making grants, but also to making a difference beyond grant dollars: informing health care policy and practice; spreading effective programs to improve the health system and make it more equitable; serving as a convener of health leaders across the State; and providing technical assistance to grantees and partners. The Foundation concentrates its initiatives on Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; Primary Care; and Veterans’ Health. NYHealth also engages in responsive grantmaking through a Special Projects Fund. 


The Communications Officer develops, executes, and manages strategic and tactical communications and other activities to advance NYHealth’s goals and objectives. Reporting to the Vice President of Communications, the Communications Officer works closely with staff across the Foundation to capture, share, and promote information, stories, and lessons learned from NYHealth’s investments and areas of expertise. The Communications Officer serves as a strategic thought partner to the Foundation’s program and policy & research teams; develops and maintains strong relationships with news media to promote the Foundation’s and grantees’ knowledge, results, and opinions; develops and implements the Foundation’s social media strategies and online marketing; manages website content; and serves as a chief editor of Foundation materials, including Board books for quarterly directors’ meetings, Grant Outcome Reports, and other publications.
