AAMI is pleased to announce that Ralph Basile, standards corporate executive at Healthmark, will be stepping into a new philanthropic role with the AAMI Foundation. Basile’s responsibilities will include raising charitable donations and assisting the Foundation in awarding scholarships, research grants, and other awards to noteworthy recipients.

A recognized healthcare industry leader and standards developer, Basile will also identify new areas for the AAMI Foundation to further its mission. The AAMI Foundation has a long-standing tradition of strengthening the delivery of patient care by supporting needed career development, innovation, and recognition of professionals and organizations who are making a lasting, positive impact on the healthcare and health technology industries.

While Basile is taking on a new role with the AAMI Foundation, he will continue his role at Healthmark, a Getinge Company. “I am happy to report that I am not leaving Healthmark. I will continue to hold the position of Corporate Standards Representative, with all the same duties to represent Healthmark/Getinge in important industry standards activities.”

Basile further stated, “as a longtime supporter of the AAMI Foundation, I’m excited to help further its mission and I appreciate Healthmark/Getinge's support of my taking on this part-time role.  AAMI and the AAMI Foundation are key organizations in promoting patient safety and best practices in the delivery of healthcare—causes that Getinge and Healthmark have long participated in and supported.”
