Click to view: Your Impact
The Bridgeport Hospital Foundation supports Bridgeport Hospital by working with generous donors to match their philanthropic aspirations with high-quality patient and family-centered services to respond to the healthcare needs of our community.
What you may not know is that the Foundation proudly celebrates its 30-year anniversary this year – 30 years of Inspiration, Investment and Impact in the Bridgeport Hospital community.
Thank you so much for your past support. You have inspired patients, physicians and other caregivers by investing funds to provide services, facilities, equipment and training to advance the hospital’s mission.
For example, with your help we continue to celebrate the “comeback” of patients like Stephen. After having a life-saving transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in the Elizabeth M. Pfriem Hybrid Operating Room, Stephen is now back to work, enjoying an active lifestyle and feeling better than he has in a long time.
Your caring enabled patients like Winston, who suffers from peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage), to “come back” after a severe burn on his foot hampered his ability to walk. Treatment at the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine at Bridgeport Hospital literally helped put Winston back on his feet once again. (See Stephen’s, Winston’s and other patient “comeback” stories at http://bridgeporthospital.org)
Over the past 30 years, you have helped transform lives like these and countless others. You have also made a difference through your support of comprehensive oncology services, the Geriatric Injury Institute, Park Avenue Medical Center, the Allison Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and many other projects that have made a profound impact on the Bridgeport Hospital community.
In the current economic environment, not-for-profit hospitals are challenged to provide access to safe, high-quality services. Philanthropy is crucial to such access and the fulfillment of our healthcare mission. We need your help now more than ever.
We hope you will help us continue to inspire, invest in and impact the patients we serve. Please renew your support with a generous tax-deductible gift to the Foundation’s 2018 Holiday Fund Drive.
With gratitude and our very best wishes for an enjoyable holiday season!
