Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital (APDMH) is pleased to announce the receipt of a $2 million unrestricted bequest from an anonymous donor. This bequest is the largest gift received in the history of the Hospital, which celebrates its 90th year anniversary this year.
“It’s heartening to receive this monumental gift, and the timing couldn’t be more appropriate” said APDMH President and CEO Sue Mooney, MD, MS, FACOG. “As a non-profit community Hospital, we count on the philanthropic support of our donors to continue providing the Upper Valley with exceptional care. In fact, APD was founded 90 years ago via an estate gift from Mrs. Alice Peck Day. Along with our board of trustees and senior team, I am grateful to this longtime friend and donor for their generous gift.”
The anonymous donor cites years of wonderful care received at APD, and excitement for APD’s future strategic plans, as the inspiration for their gift.
“This gift is a recognition that great teams, and great outcomes, are built slowly, one person at time,” said Marisa Devlin, APDMH board of trustees vice chair, and chair of the APDMH Development Committee. “As we continue to strengthen APD’s connection to the community through the execution of our strategic plan, we are so grateful that this donor has joined us in supporting that mission. APD is slowly and carefully building partnerships with other non-profit organizations to influence the social determinants of health, to provide early intervention and hopefully avert potentially larger medical issues if challenges go untreated. I am so grateful to this donor for their generous gift, and the board and senior leadership team are committed to being responsible stewards of these resources.”
