Investing to Enhance Our Community
By John DiAngelo, Inspira Health President and CEO
Invest. Impact. Inspire. That's what we're aiming to do with the funds raised during our capital campaign, designed to support and improve access to exceptional health care professionals and leading-edge technology across the region. Beyond my role as CEO of Inspira Health, I am also a proud donor and a strong believer in our mission.
Every day, our physicians, staff, and employees off their services and expertise to make our community a better, safer and healthier place. They share a deep commitment to improving care across South Jersey. Now, our community members have the opportunity to give back. Supporting the campaign directly impacts patient care by helping Inspira continue to provide exceptional health care close to home.
Our goal is to raise $20 million. Already $19 million has been pledged by Inspira leadership, board members, physicians, employees, community members and local businesses. I'm especially pleased to share that a long-time Inspira physician anonymously donated $1 million. Still there is work to be done.
Our capital campaign supports the upcoming Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill, which will feature a leading-edge cancer center, state-of-the-art surgical suites, a pediatric emergency department and more. The campaign will also support continued expansion and enhancements at Inspira Medical Center Vineland; some recently completed projects include the $34.4 million two-story patient pavilion and $5.9 million senior emergency department.
The capital campaign follows on the heels of out successful employee and physician giving campaign to the public "I'm In!" initiatives. By introducing the campaign to the public, we are inviting community members to invest directly in the essential health care services they receive.
Access to comprehensive, innovative health care in South Jersey is critical to helping our community survive and thrive. I hope you will join me in contributing to Inspira's capital campaign. As I always say, our goal is to take care of our community, in our community.
I'm in. Are you?
