Celebrating the completion of an important community project and capital campaign is always sweet, but this summer, after such a tumultuous economic year, it feels even sweeter.
On June 30, the Campaign for St. Anthony Hospital concluded, exceeding its $10 million private, philanthropic goal by more than $1 million. Close to 1,400 donors contributed to the campaign, the majority being new donors for the Franciscan Health System and Foundation. The campaign received six gifts or pledges in the amount of $500,000 and above.
The new hospital was broadly welcomed by the Gig Harbor, Key Peninsula, and South Kitsap communities, whose gifts helped to fund a state-of-the-art outpatient cancer center; a 24-hour emergency care center; sophisticated surgical and medical imaging equipment; a community wellness center; physical, occupational and speech therapy equipment; patient-care endowments; and art, gardens and water features to enhance the holistic healing environment.
The Collins Group enjoyed working with a stellar group of staff and community volunteers on this project, including Campaign Co-Chairs Sharon Snuffin and Rick Larson.
