Emergency Dept Renovation Funded Almost Entirely by Donors

All donors are heroes at Greenwich Hospital. Generous gifts from supporters help us to provide patients with specialized medical care right here in Greenwich, so they don’t have to travel far from home.

A critical community resource, Greenwich Hospital’s emergency department provides round-the-clock emergency care.

The hospital recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation project designed to enhance the patient experience, made possible by the substantial donation of several donors. The renovations help to accommodate the increasing number of Connecticut and New York residents turning to us for emergency care. In 2016, the emergency department handled 40,000 visits, approximately 110 patients a day. Children account for close to a quarter of these patients.

Carl Bennett, one of the hospital’s longtime supporters, recently joined fellow major donors, board members and staff at a ribbon cutting ceremony that unveiled the newly renovated department.
