You are cordially invited to join a distinguished group of individuals designated as Westcott Fellows. Westcott Fellows have one common goal: to ensure excellence in healthcare for the residents of our community and surrounding region. Westcott Fellows positively impact the lives of others through an investment in one of our community’s most valuable assets, Hamilton Health Care System.
The Westcott Fellows, a giving society of the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation, was created to honor and recognize the most generous contributors to Hamilton Health Care System. The special designation commemorates the life of George Lamar Westcott, a community visionary and founding board member, for his years of remarkable service to Hamilton Medical Center and the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation. His name embodies a generous giving of one’s self for the betterment of the community. Hamilton Health Care System relies on individuals who support the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation to advance the health of our entire region.
The Westcott Fellow Garden
The Westcott Fellow Garden is a lasting tribute to the generous individuals who offer a high level of support to Hamilton Health Care System. Located near the main entrance to Hamilton Medical Center, it features a walkway which meanders past beds of beautiful seasonal flowers. The lovely trees, benches and lights create a calm, welcoming environment for Hamilton’s visitors.
