Saint Elizabeth Community’s retired President and CEO Steven J. Horowitz was awarded the organization’s inaugural Spirit of Philanthropy Award.
For more than 35 years, Horowitz served the organization, beginning as Administrator of the Saint Elizabeth Home when it was located in Providence and leading its relocation to a new flagship facility in East Greenwich. During this time, he contributed his time and talent to the nonprofit’s growth, adding adult day programs, home healthcare and geriatric care management. Horowitz also brought the innovative GREEN HOUSE® Homes model of nursing home care to Rhode Island. He retired as CEO of Saint Elizabeth Community in 2020.
Horowitz said, “It has been a great privilege to work with so many talented, dedicated and caring people over the past thirty-five years in bringing innovative solutions to meet the needs of our patients and residents.”
To recognize him, Saint Elizabeth Community created the honor in his name, calling it the Steven J. Horowitz Spirit of Philanthropy Award. Each year, it will be presented to a recipient selected for their support of the organization and the elders in its care. Horowitz received the inaugural award.
“It has been a privilege to work beside Steve for the majority of my career,” said Saint Elizabeth Community CEO Matt Trimble. “I have seen firsthand his commitment to the organization and I cannot imagine a better person to receive the first annual Spirit of Philanthropy Award.”
Trimble, the former Chief Operating Officer was appointed CEO upon Horowitz’s retirement.
