Message from the Senior Vice President

Dear Friends,

Greenwich Hospital is moving forward. Behind the scenes, we have been working on ambitious projects that will drive our progress to the next level. While these plans move from imagination to implementation, we rely, as we have always done, on our deep history in the community. It is our touchstone. We embrace change not for change’s sake, but, rather, to keep our promise. We commit to keeping the hospital, and the care it provides to you, on the forefront of breakthroughs.

To bring you the best, we seek out and initiate the latest advances in diagnostics, technologies, research, and science for our patients, and we encourage and empower our entire healthcare team to practice medicine with abundant compassion. Emerging health care requires us to invest in growth, which we do while also honoring our legacy as part of our community.

We are deeply grateful to our many supporters. Generous philanthropy enables us to support critical programs and services that are most needed in the region. We will celebrate with friends of the hospital at our upcoming annual Benefit this September. Already, remarkable investments and partnerships are fueling expansion in five key clinical areas: Behavioral Health, Children’s, Heart and Vascular, Neuroscience, and Oncology.

To invite the community into our plans, we also continue our “Conversations for the Curious” series. These meet-and-greet discussions, organized by the Office of Development, spotlight physicians from Greenwich Hospital and Yale New Haven Health as they share advancements within their specialty fields. We covered heart health at The Belle Haven Club, behavioral health at Greenwich Country Club, and neurorestorative surgery at The Norton Museum in Florida.

Also, we are in full swing planning The Benefit, which will be held at Greenwich Country Club on September 22, 2023. We will be honoring the 40-plus year career of Dr. Dickerman Hollister Jr., whose oncology care touched countless people. The celebratory event will also mark the public launch of The Campaign for Greenwich Hospital. Save the date for what will be an extraordinary evening with many friends.

This is an exciting time for our hospital, and I invite you to contact me if you would like to learn more about our future plans, our progress, and upcoming gatherings.

With warm regards,
Noel Appel signatureNoël Appel
