Message from the Senior Vice President

Noel Appel, SVP and Chief Development OfficerDear Friends,

This spring, we continue Greenwich Hospital’s wonderful long-held tradition of recognizing and celebrating iconic figures who — through talent, leadership and a deep sense of community — have greatly influenced the trajectory of our hospital as well as the care and well-being of our patients.

On Friday, May 20th we are delighted to honor Elizabeth and Arthur Martinez, and Dr. James Brunetti, at our 2022 Benefit for Greenwich Hospital. Due to COVID considerations, we have a limited size to the event this year, which is sold out with a waiting list. Gifts in support of the hospital and our honorees are welcome.

Arthur Martinez served for more than 18 years on the hospital’s Board of Trustees, with three distinct terms as chair. His visionary leadership helped sustain the hospital through a strategic affiliation with Yale New Haven Health that has left an indelible mark on Greenwich Hospital. His wife, Elizabeth, also active with Greenwich Hospital, is a dedicated volunteer on hospital fundraising event committees.

Dr. Brunetti’s career spans from chief resident to a compassionate concierge physician. He is beloved by his patients and colleagues, and is being honored for his dedication to Greenwich Hospital and the many people he has cared for throughout his career.

After many months apart due to the pandemic, we are excited to have this special opportunity to recognize our honorees and celebrate, together, with our devoted community.

In the spirit of celebration, I am pleased to share our second Greenwich Hospital Office of Development Magazine – a publication that enables us to recognize individuals who influence our hospital in a myriad of ways. We tell the stories of our devoted donors and the significant impact of their gifts made through the Annual Fund, the Elias C. Benedict Legacy Society and through restricted investments toward our growth plan. We spotlight the members of our Board Development Committee, who through volunteerism and dedication, help guide our hospital’s trajectory of growth. And, we proudly feature our nursing program – looking back and forward through the lens and voices of several extraordinary Greenwich Hospital nurses.

These moments, in which we can pause and recognize those who help make Greenwich Hospital the great institution that it is, inspire us as we continue to look toward the future.

With warm regards,
Noel Appel signatureNoël Appel
