The American Cancer Society named a senior managing executive to oversee its Hope Lodge New York City, the facility the organization hopes to make its network flagship.
Karen Radwin, who has been with the American Cancer Society for 23 years, will assume responsibility for the developing facility, which provides free lodging to cancer patients and their families in the New York City Metro area.
Radwin most recently held the position of senior vice president for income development with the Society’s eastern division.
Corporate offices for the New York Hope Lodge are expected to open in June, with the 77,000-square-foot lodge opening its doors in the fall.
The American Cancer Society is developing lodges in 17 other major cities, including Boston and Burlington, Vt.
