Nantucket Golf Club Foundation Gives $500,000 to New Hospital Campaign
Nantucket Cottage Hospital has announced a $500,000 gift from the Nantucket Golf Club Foundation for the hospital’s capital campaign that will make possible the nursery inside the new hospital. This extraordinary gift from the Golf Club Foundation will directly benefit the medical care of the hospital’s youngest patients and continues the Foundation’s long tradition of supporting island children.
The nursery will be a key component of the Birthplace within the new hospital, where Nantucket Natives are born, and the Golf Club Foundation will be prominently recognized in this area of the facility. The hospital is on pace to record 160 births during the current fiscal year, which would set a record, and underscores the importance of a first-class maternity unit in the new building. The Nantucket Golf Club’s generous gift will help ensure that this essential island service has a dynamic new space within the new hospital, and that it continues to support a growing Nantucket population.
“This gift from the Nantucket Golf Cub Foundation represents an incredible gesture to support the medical care of newborns at the Birthplace in the new hospital,” said Dr. Margot Hartmann, president and CEO of Nantucket Cottage Hospital. “We are so grateful to the entire Nantucket Golf Club community for making such a meaningful contribution to the health of our youngest patients.”
The Nantucket Golf Club Foundation has a long track record of supporting Nantucket youth. Through the Nantucket Golf Club Foundation, its members, guests and others, the club has raised more than $21 million for its Nantucket Scholars program and about 65 other island initiatives devoted to improving the lives of the children of Nantucket.
The new Nantucket Cottage Hospital will transform the patient experience by enhancing privacy and safety, increasing access to providers, and incorporating new technology throughout the building. It will also create the foundation for the hospital’s future by providing new opportunities to expand services and attract the best clinicians. Learn more about the new hospital by clicking here.
