Greenwich, CT - The Greenwich Hospital Auxiliary has made a $500,000 donation to benefit cardiovascular services at Greenwich Hospital. The generous gift was made during the Auxiliary’s 63rd annual meeting on Sept. 30.

The Auxiliary, formed in 1906 and originally known as the Greenwich Hospital volunteer corps, to date has contributed more than $9.5 million through proceeds from its thrift shop, gift shop and annual fundraising efforts. Past donations have funded new technology and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and supported hospital services, including Emergency, Maternity and Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Healing, among others. The Auxiliary also funds annual scholarships for high school graduates studying for healthcare careers.

“The Auxiliary is an essential arm of this hospital,” said Frank Corvino, president/CEO. “Their unwavering dedication to our mission and generous support of vital services and programs at Greenwich Hospital enhance patient care and safety across the board.”

“This generous gift is greatly appreciated and will provide tremendous benefit to the hospital’s Cardiology Dept. and the patients who use our services,” said Christopher Howes, MD, chief of Cardiology. “It’s an honor to have our work supported by the Auxiliary.” Cardiovascular services at Greenwich Hospital include interventional cardiology, emergency angioplasty, vascular surgery and cardiac rehabilitation.

Also, during the Sept. 30 meeting, outgoing auxiliary president John Toner welcomed his successor, Thomas E. White, Esq. of Larchmont, NY, and a new slate of officers, including Louis De Bergalis of Greenwich, vice president, Sally Lochner of Greenwich, treasurer, and Cos Cob resident Sandra Hill, secretary.

“Greenwich Hospital is extremely proud and humbled by the amazing work of its auxiliary and volunteer force,” said Stacey Green, director of volunteer services. “Each year, nearly 700 volunteers contribute to the success of the hospital by volunteering approximately 70,000 hours of service.”
