MULLICA HILL, N.J. (November 20, 2018) — More than 260 attendees joined Inspira Health Network officials at the future site of Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill to celebrate the public launch of the network’s ambitious “Invest. Impact. Inspire.” capital campaign. Inspira announced that its goal of $20 million would help support the construction of Gloucester County’s first new hospital in 45 years and improve access to exceptional health care professionals and leading-edge technology across the region. More than $17 million has already been pledged by Inspira leadership, board members, physicians, employees and local businesses.
The $20 million goal makes this the largest campaign ever conducted by the health network. With today’s public launch, Inspira is now asking the communities it serves to help it reach the campaign’s goal and advance health care in the region.
Several distinguished guests spoke at the event, including former Philadelphia Eagle and NFL broadcaster Ron Jaworski. Speakers also included John DiAngelo, President and CEO of Inspira Health Network; Todd Way, Executive Vice President of Operations at Inspira; Jessica Kowal, Chief Development Officer at Inspira; Michael McLaughlin, Chair of the Inspira Health Network Board of Trustees; Gary Galloway, Chair of the Inspira Hospital Board of Trustees; James E. George, M.D., J.D., campaign co-chair, and New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney.
“All of us in the Inspira family are excited to see the launch of this capital campaign that will help us improve health care for communities throughout South Jersey,” DiAngelo said. “The campaign helps to support Inspira’s investment in exceptional clinicians, leading technology and a comprehensive health care system.”
Guests at the event learned more about Inspira’s multimillion-dollar capital projects, including the $350 million Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill, which will feature a comprehensive cancer program, state-of-the-art surgical suites, a pediatric emergency department and much more. At Inspira Medical Center Vineland, major projects include the recently opened $34.4 million two-story patient pavilion and $5.9 million senior emergency department. Elsewhere in the region, Inspira is reaffirming its commitment to serving Bridgeton, Elmer and Woodbury with critical development projects.
The capital campaign follows on the heels of the network’s successful employee giving and physician giving “I’m IN!” initiatives. By introducing the campaign to the public, Inspira is inviting community members to invest directly in the essential health care services they receive.
“Every day, Inspira’s physicians and employees offer their services to the community, and now community members have an opportunity to give back,” said Dr. George. “Supporting the campaign directly impacts patient care by helping Inspira continue to provide exceptional health care, close to home.”
