Here for each other

Thank you for being there for us, so we can always be here for you.

Your investment—more than $25 million in 2020—accelerated innovative research and expanded compassionate care in a year where we cared for many patients sick with COVID-19. Thanks to you, we were able to investigate novel treatments and care for patients suffering from an entirely new disease. 

As we reflect on a year that forever changed healthcare, the lessons we have learned are helping us reimagine how we will care for you and for our community in the future. The COVID-19 pandemic has allowed us to move forward with plans for improving access to care through telehealth initiatives and a streamlined patient experience. 

Through it all, our commitment to meeting all of the health challenges that affect our community has not changed. Our physicians and researchers are dedicated to providing new treatments and new hope for patients suffering from cancer and other life-limiting conditions. And with innovative robotic systems like the Corepath GRX, they will one day be able to provide patients in remote areas with timely, life-saving stroke care.

Thanks to you we can look to the future and think boldly about providing the leading-edge healthcare you, and every member of our community, deserves.

During this uncertain time, we are more grateful than ever for your philanthropic commitment.

Sincerely,
