Focusing on Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s campaign to build a new hospital, Milestones magazine is designed to provide an update on the project and celebrate the donors and volunteers who are making this historic initiative a reality. Published in June 2017, our fourth issue highlights Wendy and Eric Schmidt’s $5 million donation, plus we give readers a glimpse into what’s happened on the campus over the winter.

Even the youngest Nantucketers are helping to build the island’s new hospital! Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s “Little Builders” are pitching in to help us raise awareness and funds for this historic project. Every child who becomes a “Little Builder” receives a toolbox with a t-shirt, hardhat, hospital ID card, and tools to help us break ground on the new hospital!
If you were not able to attend our kickoff event on June 28th, stop by the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation during business hours to pick up your kid’s toolbox, or call us any time to learn more at 508-825-8250. (more…)
