The James J. Xinis Memorial Fund

In memory of James J. Xinis

We invite you to carry on Jim’s legacy by making a gift to the CalvertHealth Foundation. All gifts will benefit Cancer Care at CalvertHealth; a cause near and dear to the Xinis Family.

During his 27 years as President and CEO, Jim Xinis played a pivotal role in transforming Calvert Hospital to the health system it is today. Under his leadership, the hospital broadened its reach to include an employed medical group; primary and specialty care practices; urgent care centers; a home health agency; diagnostic imaging; the breast center; and so much more. When he stepped down in 2015, Jim earned the distinction of being one of the longest-serving president and CEOs of any hospital in Maryland.

Jim led Calvert through an era of tremendous change. He had a clear, strategic vision and his countless contributions and commitment made Calvert Hospital what it is today. It was that strategic vision that set Calvert apart - scoring many “firsts” along the way. Calvert was the first to adopt hospitalist medicine in Southern Maryland; the first to implement critical care telemedicine in Maryland and the first to launch a community health information exchange in the state. Jim was also the force behind the establishment of the “Best of Breed” clinical alliances that brought the region’s top experts in breast diagnostic imaging and surgery, interventional cardiology, vascular surgery, gynecologic oncology, neurosurgery, and gynecologic urology as well as pediatrics and high-risk obstetrics close to home.

When Jim retired in 2015, American Hospital Association then President and CEO Rich Umbdenstock said at the time, “Real leadership goes beyond the organization and influences the entire community for the better.” That’s exactly what Jim did for CalvertHealth and the community it serves.
