Yale New Haven Health Greenwich Hospital celebrated the public launch of its $125 million Arc of Care Campaign, ushering in a new era of philanthropic impact, and signifying the first campaign for the community’s hospital in nearly two decades.
The fundraising initiative, which has already raised more than $65 million during the campaign’s four-year silent phase, will continue to propel expansion within behavioral health, children’s health, heart and vascular, neuroscience, and oncology – all areas of clinical importance to the people the hospital serves.
Greenwich Hospital leaders launched “Arc of Care: The Campaign for Yale New Haven Health Greenwich Hospital,” surrounded by 350 enthusiastic friends, supporters, community members, Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine physicians and leadership at The Benefit for Greenwich Hospital on September 22. The annual event, held at Greenwich Country Club, took on special meaning as the campaign’s name and $125 million goal were revealed.
“Our Arc of Care Campaign signifies an arc in which people can come under and know that they are protected. It’s an arc that shelters our patients and envelopes them with the expertise that is found here at Greenwich Hospital. It’s an arc that is local and extends more regionally – encompassing Yale School of Medicine and the innovation that is research, new technologies and new treatments,” said Greenwich Hospital President Diane P. Kelly, RN, DNP, MBA.
The campaign launch looks toward the future while also celebrating the fundraising success to date. This includes investments of over $65 million from devoted community supporters who have enabled important initiatives such as a new pediatric ambulatory surgical center, a major expansion in behavioral health services, including a program dedicated for adolescent care, and endowed positions within neuroscience and infectious disease, to name a few.
“The Arc of Care Campaign makes possible life-changing science through transformative philanthropy,” said Noël Appel, Greenwich Hospital senior vice president and chief development officer. “Over the past four years, the philanthropic resources our devoted community provided have fueled our important work across key clinical disciplines, ensuring that our patients receive the most advanced care, close to home. We can only realize this level of growth in collaboration with our community, for which we are incredibly grateful.”
As he revealed the campaign’s $125 million fundraising goal with supporters, Greenwich Hospital Board Chair W. Robert Berkley, Jr. underscored that the investments made today will impact the healthcare outcomes for generations to come.
“Our campaign ensures that each patient will continue to benefit from the expertise found here at Greenwich Hospital and the innovation in research, new technologies and treatments encompassed by Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine,” he said.
