Nantucket Cottage Hospital Expanding Services with Manning & Associates Physical Therapy Transition

June 12, 2024 – Nantucket Cottage Hospital (NCH) is significantly expanding its physical therapy services, after agreeing to transition Manning & Associates Physical Therapy into its rehabilitation services department on July 8.

Manning & Associates owner, Joseph Manning, has been in communication with hospital leadership this past year about integrating his practice into the hospital’s current programs.

“We were obviously very familiar with the high-quality care Joe and his team provide – many of his patients are ours as well – so we saw it as an important opportunity to ensure that our island community will continue to have access to these excellent physical therapists,” said Nantucket Cottage Hospital president and chief operating officer Amy Lee. “We are committed to ensuring the island has the services the community needs, and also that there will be a seamless transition as they continue their care.” (more…)

NCH Awards $60,000 in Beinecke Scholarships

Amy Lee, NCH President, is joined by the Beinecke family’s Ann Oliver, Barb Spitler and Deborah Beale, together with recipients of the 2024 scholarship

June 10, 2024 – Nantucket Cottage Hospital is pleased to award 34 Beinecke Scholarships totaling $60,000 to island students, Nantucket residents, and hospital staff who are pursuing education and training in medical and healthcare fields.

Open to graduates of Nantucket High School and employees of Nantucket Cottage Hospital, this special fund was created by the late Nantucket businessman and civic leader Walter Beinecke, Jr. in the 1950s.

The eligibility of applicants and scholarship recipients are considered by an independent ad hoc committee consisting of NCH and community leaders.

Beinecke, the man who founded Sherburne Associates and is credited with transforming Nantucket into a modern destination resort town, was a life member of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s Board of Trustees. The Beinecke Scholarship Fund’s origins date back to the early 1950s when his father, Walter Beinecke, Sr., made annual gifts through the hospital to Nantucket High School graduates to help them pay for nursing school. After his father’s death in 1958, Walter Beinecke, Jr. formally established the scholarship fund in his memory. Over the years, Nantucket Cottage Hospital has used the scholarship fund to assist several hundred island students further their education.

Urgent Access Clinic Adorned with New Art Installation

May 29, 2024 – Patients and visitors to Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s Urgent Access clinic will notice several new prominent artwork pieces throughout the Anderson Building. This new artwork adds the finishing touches to the newly renovated and expanded Urgent Access clinic and was made possible with the support of Flowers on Chestnut and the Artists Association of Nantucket.

Two original oil paintings, “Nantucket Road” by Alison Smith and “Abstract #1” by David Lazarus, are on display in the waiting room thanks to a loan from the Artists Association of Nantucket, coordinated by Patty Keneally, President of the Board of Directors. “We are thrilled to loan these pieces to Nantucket Cottage Hospital, and we hope they bring some level of comfort and joy to the patients who need to visit Urgent Access,” said Tracey Sears, Executive Director.

A striking element of NCH’s new Urgent Access space is a wall of nine nautical flags spelling NANTUCKET provided by Michael Molinar and the team at Flowers on Chestnut. Molinar and his colleague, Ferhat Yuseinov, also provided design advice and hung each piece throughout the waiting room, hallways, and exam rooms.
“I’d like to thank the Artists Association for these beautiful pieces, and Michael Molinar and his team for their ongoing aesthetic guidance to Nantucket Cottage Hospital,” commented NCH President, Amy Lee. “Michael has been a dedicated volunteer at Nantucket Cottage Hospital for decades and was instrumental in the design process of the new hospital.”

The Urgent Access clinic underwent an extensive renovation this Spring resulting in a much larger space to meet patient demand. Urgent Access is open daily in the Anderson Building at 57 Prospect Street and walk-ins are welcome. Appointments can be scheduled through the Mass General Brigham Patient Gateway or by calling 508-825-1000.
