2012 Capital Campaign

     Exective Board celebrates campaign 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 expansion projects.


    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.
