Updated: 7/30/2021

Throughout her tenure with Kaleida Health, Cheryl Klass has made a tremendous impact, not only by her leadership but through her generosity.

Cheryl has been a benevolent donor to the Kaleida Health Foundation. With her leadership and philanthropy, she has enhanced healthcare practices for our patients and employees. In addition, Cheryl has supported the Kaleida Health Foundation by attending signature events throughout the years, such as the Kaleida Classic and the Kaleida Ball. 

Recently, Cheryl announced that she will be retiring from Kaleida Health next month.

Cheryl states, “In my clinical leadership role I have the opportunity to witness the incredible impact of the Foundation’s aid to our patients and staff. The financial support for clinical equipment and nursing scholarships are critical to improving the quality of care for our patients.

“During the recent surges of Covid-19, the care baskets, meals and support of our front line staff, encouraged our nursing teams as they focused on providing exceptional patient care. I enjoy being a donor myself, knowing of this amazing impact.”

The Kaleida Health Foundation is grateful for Cheryl’s work with the Foundation and wishes her the very best in her next chapter!
