The USA Health Office of Medical Affairs Development has recently expanded with the addition of two new staff members who will help engage community members, business leaders and grateful patients to advance the mission and healthcare services provided by USA Health, the region’s only academic medical center.

Casey Hitson now serves as an assistant director for USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute. Her new role at MCI focuses on obtaining sponsorship support along with developing and maintaining relationships with internal and external donors through fundraising events. A graduate of the University of Alabama, Hitson’s previous experience includes working as the director of development and marketing for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama.


Laura Hails Taliancich has joined the staff as a development officer for University Hospital. A graduate of the Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C., her role will include assisting in the acquisition of major gifts and event sponsorships as well as other philanthropic initiatives that strategically support the mission of University Hospital, including the region's only Level 1 Trauma Center.

“We are delighted to welcome two extremely talented professionals, Casey and Laura Hails, to our development staff,” said Kelly McCarron, USA Health associate vice president for medical affairs development. “They are already strengthening our efforts to more effectively share the ways we transform medicine along the upper Gulf Coast as we continue to expand our philanthropic base.”
