Nantucket Cottage Hospital is inviting Nantucket residents to submit applications for its 2017 Beinecke Scholarship Fund. This special fund, created by the late Nantucket businessman and civic leader Walter Beinecke, Jr., is intended to further the education and training of island residents in medical and health care fields by helping to finance their studies. The scholarship fund is open to graduates of Nantucket High School, employees of Nantucket Cottage Hospital and any other island resident who can satisfy the guidelines and requirements. (more…)
Thanks to the support of hundreds of Nantucket families, businesses and organizations, the work to prepare our site for the construction of the island’s new hospital is underway! One of the many community partners helping to make this project a reality is Nantucket Bank, which has generously contributed to our capital campaign. On Wednesday, January 18th, Neil Marttila, the bank’s senior vice president and market executive, stopped by the hospital to help Dr. Hartmann with the move of the Founders Building toward its new location on Vesper Lane. Thank you to Nantucket Bank and everyone who has contributed to this historic initiative!
Nantucket Cottage Hospital is mourning the loss of longtime island resident Roy Flanders, who passed away this week.
Roy was a patient and friend of the hospital who in 2012 announced an incredible $250,000 matching challenge grant to NCH to inspire the island community to support its hospital.
“I tried to whittle it down to five words: Imagine Nantucket without our hospital. Can you imagine?” Roy asked on the front page of The Inquirer and Mirror in December 2012. “The thing is, I’ve been there so many times, especially in the last year with some health issues. I hope to encourage as many people to help out.” (more…)
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.

Chris and Carmen Carey came to Nantucket 10 years ago and have made the island their home. In that time they have also come to rely on the services of Nantucket Cottage Hospital for everything from emergency and primary care, to specialty physician services. For the Careys, Nantucket Cottage Hospital is one of the main factors that have given them the confidence to build a new life on the island.
Chris, who owns the home building and caretaking firm The Carey Company, has type 1 diabetes, and gets his regular blood work done on-island at the hospital. He’s also been a patient in the emergency department after a carpentry accident. Carmen, who works at RJ Millers – a salon and spa – was able to stay on the island to see a visiting podiatrist at Nantucket Cottage Hospital for treatment of plantar fasciitis.
“We love being part of the year-round community and we know how important it is to have a good hospital,” Carmen said. “So we hope you’ll join us by supporting The NCH Fund, too.”
