Message from the Senior Vice President

Dear Friends,

A hallmark of Greenwich Hospital, dating back to its earliest days, is its commitment to being on the forefront of progress – bringing our patients the latest advances within expert care, diagnostics, technologies, research, and science. Historically, as the healthcare needs of our communities have changed, so too has our hospital, nimbly and thoughtfully looking forward, buoyed by the philanthropy of our many supporters.

We enter 2023 celebrating that transformative growth mindset, alongside the investments and partnerships that have fueled expansion in five clinical areas important to those we serve: Behavioral Health, Children’s, Heart and Vascular, Neuroscience, and Oncology.

The momentum surrounding these growth initiatives – pillars of The Campaign for Greenwich Hospital – has been framed in recent months by our Conversations for the Curious series.  These special evenings, organized by the Office of Development, bring our hospital’s friends together with Greenwich Hospital and Yale Medicine physicians, who lead engaging conversations about their work and advancements within their specialty fields.

Recent and upcoming programs in this series include:

  • Heart and Vascular at Greenwich Hospital, Active & Proactive: Your Heart Needs Both at The Belle Haven Club, Greenwich.
  • Behavioral Health at Greenwich Hospital, Where We Stand in Addressing an Intergenerational Crisis at Greenwich Country Club, Greenwich.
  • Neuroscience at Greenwich Hospital, From Genes to Brain Circuits: Neurorestorative Surgery at The Norton Museum of Art, Palm Beach, Florida.

On Thursday, May 4, our Development Office is planning a gathering at Townhouse Greenwich with several of our leaders in our Children’s service areas. All of these unique opportunities – to learn and converse with hospital leadership and physician experts – lead up to our Benefit 2023, the public launch of The Campaign for Greenwich Hospital. Mark your calendars for Friday, September 22 for what will be an unforgettable celebration!

I am delighted to share that there has been a groundswell of support and outreach surrounding Greenwich Hospital’s plans to open an Adolescent Behavioral Health Outpatient Program in partnership with the Greenwich United Way. So many in our community have joined in the philanthropy of longtime Greenwich residents Ellen and Richard Richman, who will match any gifts to this program dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million.

These are exciting months 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
