Hospital Naming Opportunities
The Emerson Health Care Foundation is honored to recognize the generosity of its donors by naming areas in Emerson Hospital. Named gifts demonstrate a donor’s commitment, provide essential financial support and inspire others to support outstanding health care in our community. Gifts may be acknowledged in the name of the donor, or the donor may choose to recognize a loved one, friend or caregiver.
