President’s Message – February 2017

Happy American Heart Month! 

Your charitable giving to Bridgeport Hospital Foundation helps our patients in our Joel E. Smilow Heart Institute live healthier lives.

Bridgeport Hospital is building a state-of-the-art Hybrid Operating Room pictured below with the help of generous donors like you.

Cardiac patients will benefit from potentially life-saving procedures, performed with greater precision in a minimally invasive manner with less pain and faster recovery. This facility features highly sophisticated imaging and surgical technology and will offer improved outcomes and hope to many patients who previously were not candidates for surgery.

In honor of Heart Month, please consider a recurring or a one-time gift to help us continue to improve cardiac care. Click here to donate or to learn more, contact Lyla Steenbergen, gift advancement officer, at (203) 384-3522.

Thank you for your continued support!
