Message from the SVP

The latest in clinical excellence at Greenwich Hospital, strengthened by community collaboration

Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe that almost a year has passed since we celebrated the public launch of our $125 million Arc of Care Campaign. Many in our community have embraced this pivotal moment – an unprecedented opportunity to change the trajectory of healthcare outcomes for ourselves, families, friends and neighbors.

Over the past several months, the Office of Development envisioned a series of gatherings designed to introduce our hospital’s friends to the talented clinical leaders representing areas of distinction at Greenwich Hospital and Yale Medicine. This spring we welcomed our community to two Medical Insights programs. The first, focused on Children’s Health, featured members of our talented and dedicated pediatric team of specialists and subspecialists. Our second program featured Yale School of Medicine neurosurgeons Dr. Murat Gunel and Dr. Zion Zibly – two of the world’s most progressive and knowledgeable figures within the fields of neurosurgery, genomics and neuroscience. We look forward to more of these types of programs in the near future.

Below, I am delighted to share some of our most recent updates from the Office of Development:

Hot off the Press | Our 2024 Office of Development Magazine is a celebration of our hospital’s forward progress through the lens of philanthropy. Within the pages of our publication, we take great joy in highlighting those among us who have chosen to get involved at their local hospital in truly profound ways.

Celebrate with Us in September | Mark your calendars for Greenwich Hospital’s largest event of the year on Friday, September 27, at Greenwich Country Club. We will honor devoted supporters Icy and Scott Frantz with our inaugural Luminate Health and Medicine Award, a special recognition created as part of our Arc of Care Campaign to honor those who have made a substantial impact on philanthropy and leadership volunteerism through their years of engagement with the hospital. We will also recognize two beloved physicians who have contributed greatly to the care of women and children throughout their careers – Neonatologist Shruti Gupta, MD, and OB/GYN Romelle Maloney, MD. We hope you can join us in September! Tickets, tribute advertisements and gifts can be purchased online at

With Gratitude | When COVID-19 hit our region in 2020, it was unknown, severe and spreading uncontrollably. As our healthcare team responded with bravery and compassion, our community responded with generosity that helped equip and renew us. The Office of Development recently unveiled a lasting tribute to the many individuals, families, businesses and organizations who supported Greenwich Hospital during the height of the pandemic. Not a moment went by when our hospital didn’t feel our community’s embrace, and the outpouring of compassion and solidarity lifted our hospital through the most challenging of days. The new recognition wall is located in our Carl and Dorothy Bennett Community Garden. Please drop by the garden this summer or fall to see the wall.

Best wishes for a wonderful summer,
