building a new Day
Florence Nightingale understood that minimizing apprehension and uncertainty is an important part of the healing process. She knew that form, color, and light can help speed recovery. It was with these ideals as a guide and inspiration that the Board of Trustees of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital began planning an extensive renovation to improve over 60% of the physical plant in a sustainable, energy efficient way.
The planned improvements will enhance the overall patient experience by providing easier access to all parts of the hospital while enhancing privacy and comfort.
To help meet the costs of this $17.3 million renovation, APD began the “quiet phase” of a capital campaign in October 2011 with a goal of $4 million. Though this is an ambitious goal, we are happy to report that over half of this goal has been met through gifts from:
More than $2.9 million from individuals (including employees and medical staff), businesses and foundations have enabled us to complete the first phase of APD’s capital project, the renovation of the Medical-Surgical wing. As we finalize plans for the second, more extensive phase, we ask the community to continue supporting our campaign goal of $4 million with a gift of any size. Help us transform APD!
“APD is a non-profit organization committed to improving quality, decreasing costs and expanding access to care. We recognize that we have the opportunity to be a part of fundamentally changing the US healthcare system for the better. We want our community to continue to be interested and engaged in the future of APD.”

Why is community support so important?
Through the years the Upper Valley community has responded to APD’s need to support its operation and improve its facilities. From bake sales to fundraising benefit concerts, thousands of individuals have made gifts to the hospital, large and small. It was the collective giving power of individuals and businesses in the community that remodeled APD’s operating rooms and helped build and expand the Robert A. Mesropian Community Care Center which serves many families throughout the region. By contributing to the building a new Day campaign, you become a stakeholder in one of the essential institutions in the Upper Valley that cares for both young and old. When you give, you are demonstrating your belief that compassionate caring on a personal level is vital to our way of life. You are signaling that you believe that APD’s facility should match the level of care that you find here.
Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Gifts to the campaign are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. Our mission is to provide patient focused health care services that are responsive to community needs, promote wellness, and continually improve the quality of health care services in the community.
