WHY I SERVE​: PHILIP GOLDSTONE

"I’ve had to visit a few hospitals, including Christus St. Vincent. For a rather small community, in a largely rural or small-town neighborhood, Santa Fe and its people are blessed to have a hospital as strong as Christus St. Vincent, providing the depth and breadth of services that it does. Our community deeply relies on it. I serve in order to strengthen what our hospital and its health care providers can do for the health of my neighbors, both those I’ve met, and those I’ll never meet."

I am a Ph.D. physicist, retired after a 35-year career at Los Alamos in research, management, and executive advisor roles. I’ve lived in Santa Fe for 30 years. In addition to the Hospital Foundation I am active with several other Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico nonprofit organizations.
