Edward M. Rubin Leads Valley Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees as New Chairman
As The Valley Hospital in Paramus prepares to welcome its first patients this spring, The Valley Hospital Foundation is pleased to recognize Edward M. Rubin as the newest Chairman of its Board of Trustees, helping to usher in the next chapter for Valley. A Ridgewood resident for more than 30 years and a Trustee since 2014, Ed and his family have been longtime supporters of Valley and have experienced firsthand the compassionate, patient-centered care for which Valley is known.
Twenty-six years ago, Ed and his wife, Deany, welcomed their twin sons at Valley. Born at 28 weeks’ gestation after a complicated pregnancy, the boys spent six weeks receiving care in Valley’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and later returned for a second hospital stay. Spending every day by their babies’ sides, Ed and Deany came to understand and value the care that sets Valley apart.
“The two most important things that Valley offers are top-notch medical care for our community and a focus on providing a high-quality experience for each patient,” Ed said. “Valley really cares about how the patient is cared for and how the loved ones connected to the patient are treated as well.”
Ed has lent his vast expertise in business and finance to the Foundation during his tenure as Board Treasurer from 2018 to 2023 and as a member of the Board’s Investment Committee. He has also served on the President’s Council. As Chairman, he looks forward to leading the Foundation as it nears its $125 million goal for the Serve. Care. Transform. campaign for The Valley Hospital in Paramus and continuing to advocate for Valley’s future needs.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Ed earned his MBA from The Wharton School. He is the Senior Relationship Manager of TD Securities, managing some of the firm’s largest relationships. He joined TD in 2015 as Global Head of Fixed Income Sales and previously held roles at Deutsche Bank Securities; Merrill Lynch; and Kidder, Peabody & Co.
“I look forward to continuing to work with the Board, Foundation staff, and hospital leadership to show our community what a special and unique resource The Valley Hospital is for our region,” he said.
Beyond Ed’s role on the Board and Deany’s longtime involvement with Valley’s Women For Health, the Rubins have supported Valley through their own personal philanthropy for many years, most recently contributing a generous gift toward the new hospital. In recognition, a waiting area on the NICU floor will be named in honor of the care their own family received many years ago.
Ed looks forward to what the new hospital will mean for patients and families in our region.
“Having a hospital like Valley is so important, and you don’t have to travel to New York City to experience it,” Ed said. “I’m excited to see Valley’s future unfold.”
