ACKs of LOVE

(February 11, 2022) – Nantucket Cottage Hospital is pleased to announce “ACKs of LOVE,” a two-week community initiative, starting Monday, February 14th, to recognize the immense sacrifice and dedication of hospital staff throughout the pandemic by local businesses and grateful members of our community.

The initiative, fully funded by a small group of anonymous donors, will feature 18 local businesses offering special deals to hospital staff, ranging from free yoga classes and coffee to steep discounts on clothing and massages.

“There has been an overwhelming sense of support for Nantucket Cottage Hospital from the local community”, said Jeanine Borthwick, longtime hospital volunteer and the driving force behind ACKs of LOVE. “We regularly hear and share stories about how well patients and families are treated at Nantucket Cottage Hospital and how grateful everyone is to have this incredible facility filled with top notch professionals. We want to make sure that this gratitude makes its way back to the team at Nantucket Cottage Hospital. This initiative is meant to show our thanks in a tangible way and boost morale for a group of people who have sacrificed so much for our island’s health.”

Throughout the pandemic, the staff at Nantucket Cottage Hospital has been credited with preforming over 51,000 COVID-19 tests, administering over 21,000 COVID-19 vaccinations, and caring for over 400 COVID-19 patients.

“Nantucketers take care of each other, and this is just another example of the unique generous spirit of our island. We are grateful for our dedicated hospital workers as well as the big-hearted local business partners who are supporting ACKs of LOVE,” said Borthwick. “A special thank you to the business owners who are such vital and generous community members – this is Nantucket unity and care at its best,” said Cara McCaffrey, a dedicated volunteer who helped to coordinate ACKs of LOVE.

Percelays Named Chairs of 25th Boston Pops on Nantucket

(February 3, 2022) Nantucket Cottage Hospital is pleased to announce that Bruce and Elisabeth Percelay will serve as the event chairs for the 25th Annual Boston Pops on Nantucket set for August 13th, 2022.

As longtime Nantucket homeowners and island supporters, the Percelays will oversee Nantucket’s signature event of the summer, featuring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and a special guest to be announced at a later date, after a two-year hiatus brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The annual concert is the largest single fundraiser for Nantucket Cottage Hospital, with all the net proceeds generated during the event staying on Nantucket to sustain the hospital’s operations and its year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of the island community.

“We recognize the critical importance of the POPS concert to the hospital’s financial health and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” said Bruce Percelay.

The concert will mark the 25th year for the Boston Pops on Nantucket, at Jetties Beach, with general admission ticket sales beginning online this Spring. (more…)
