The Whitfield Healthcare Foundation Executive
Committee and Board of Trustees celebrate
exceeding the $6 million goal in support of
Hamilton’s Cardiac and Medical Intensive Care
In February 2012, the Foundation Board of Trustees adopted the most
ambitious goal in the history of the Foundation to raise $6 million in
support of the expansion of Hamilton Medical Center’s Cardiac Care
and Medical Intensive Care Services. The initial
phase of the Campaign began with the expansion of the Mashburn Cardiac
Pavilion which was completed in October 2013 and today, the newly
designed pavilion holds a second cardiac catheterization lab, a six-bed
cardiac recovery room, and a cardiovascular hybrid suite designed to
serve as both an operating room and a cath lab that accommodates cardiac
and endovascular procedures. Each cath lab was upgraded with new
state-of-the-art digital angiography equipment and the hybrid lab has a
multi-axis angiography system with robotic technology.
The second phase of the campaign began in August 2014, with the expansion of the Bandy-McCutchen Medical Intensive Care Services increasing the size and number of treatment rooms and enlarging the patient family waiting area to accommodate the growing number of patients requiring specialized intensive care. The new MICU is expected to be completed by January 2016.
In December, 2014, the Board of Trustees’ celebrated the successful completion of the capital campaign raising a total of $6,236,377 in gifts and pledges from the community and hospital family. The completion of this campaign marks the most successful Capital Campaign among the six previous capital campaign history of the Foundation.
“The success of the Cardiac and Medial Intensive Care Capital Campaign is a stellar example of how the Foundation continues to touch the lives of thousands of people throughout the communities served by Hamilton Health Care System,” said Gary Howard, Foundation Executive Vice President. “The Foundation is vital to the System’s mission to assure access to services which advance the quality and dignity of life,” said Mr. Howard.
