Brigham and Women’s Wraps up the Largest Hospital Fundraising Campaign in Boston History
NEC member Brigham and Women’s Hospital has completed it’s “Life. Giving. Breakthroughs” campaign, receiving over 200,000 donations from 80 countries. The donations totaled $1.75 billion., setting a new record for hospital fundraising in Boston.
The hospital’s campaign began in 2013 and includes a $50 million donation from Karen and Robert Hale for the new Hale Building for Transformative Medicine. Robert Hale is the co-owner of NEC member the Boston Celtics. The building, finished in 2016, is the first to have a 7-tesla MRI machine in North America. The funds also helped in building the Thea and James Stoneman Centennial Park, as well as doubling the size of the newborn intensive care unit and the creation of a new Center for Child Development.
“These advancements underscore the power of philanthropy and the impact a grateful community can make when they give back to help others,” Susan Rapple, senior vice president and chief development officer at the Brigham, said in a statement.
