The Emerson Health Care Foundation raises funds for capital projects, equipment and programs through targeted major gift campaigns. This focused approach has enabled Emerson Hospital to undertake some major improvements and acquire important new technology — significantly enhancing patient care.

Over the past decade, we have been able to implement transformative upgrades to emergency services, surgery, obstetrics, radiology, cancer, breast health, anticoagulation management, rehabilitation and concussion care.

In addition, patient floors (Wheeler 4 and Wheeler 5) were completely refurbished, which included creation of a new Pediatric Unit.

With the generous support of our community, Emerson Hospital will continue to expand services and enhance its physical plant to meet the demands and expectations of all the people we serve.

Here is a project we are currently fundraising for:

Expansion of the Steinberg Wellness Center for Mind and Body at Emerson

Initially created in 2011, the Wellness Center for Mind and Body supports the hospital’s vision to optimize health and wellness by creating a coordinated system that provides a continuum of care.

With demand for its diverse, high-quality programming on the rise (the expected growth rate is projected at 36 percent over the next two years), the hospital relocated the new Steinberg Wellness Center to a larger space within 310 Baker Avenue. The new 6,100 square feet facility is enhancing participants’ experience with a far superior, convenient location and ample free parking.

The Foundation is committed to raising $750,000 to support this expansion. A very generous lead gift of $500,000 from the Steinberg Family has named the new Center. We continue to seek philanthropic investments for this very worthwhile project.
