Investing in the Future of Healthcare
Stephens Memorial Hospital 2022 Annual Fund
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generosity of people like you—who care about the health of our community – for the means to innovate, expand, and grow. Your support helps us provide the best possible care for our patients.
As your local community hospital, we rely on the generous support of our annual giving donors to meet the hospital’s ongoing needs. Recently, donations have had a real impact on improving the quality of patient care we provide at Stephens. Annual giving has helped fund the purchase of much-needed medical equipment, including a new MRI machine and breast tomosynthesis scanner; secured our partnership with the Maine Medical Center/Tufts Medical student program, and provided funds to relocate and expand our cancer care program. These have been essential investments in delivering high-quality care to our patients.
This year when you make a gift to our 2022 annual fund, you can designate what you would like your donation to support:
- PACE Paramedic Services Renovations: Each year, PACE Paramedic crews respond to over 4,300 emergencies in our community and provide critical transport services between health care facilities. The volume of calls has increased significantly over the past two years, and this trend is expected to continue. Our trained Paramedics & EMTs are ready to respond to the anticipated increase in demand, but we need your help.
In 2021 Stephens initiated a comprehensive facilities planning process to address aging infrastructure and future needs of our buildings and services. As part of that process, the PACE building was identified as a priority for the local community, requiring significant updates and renovations to its facilities. Upcoming renovations will address essential HVAC needs, provide private sleeping quarters and bathrooms for our increased number of personnel, and adequate garage space to maintain and store the ambulances. These updates are essential in supporting the community’s emergency services.
- Stephens Care Team Wellness: Every day, the care team at Stephens goes above and beyond for their patients. During these challenging times, they’re giving their all to ensure the health and well-being of those they are privileged to take care of, including your loved ones, neighbors, friends, and maybe even yourself. Directing your Annual Fund donation to Care Team Wellness will help fund wellness initiatives to support our care team.
Whether directed to PACE service renovations or care team wellness, your gift to Stephens is an investment in the health and well-being of the communities and people we serve. When you give to Stephens Memorial Hospital, you help to ensure health care is available for all who need it, regardless of their ability to pay.
