Gift to Hunterdon Medical Center Will Result in $3 Million for Capital

An anonymous family who are grateful patients and long-time residents
of Hunterdon County have generously offered to make a $1 million
challenge gift to Investing in a New Generation of Care…The Campaign for
Hunterdon Healthcare System.

The gift, matching the largest ever made by a living individual to
Hunterdon Medical Center, is structured as a challenge that will become
official once the campaign has raised an additional $2 million.
Investing in a New Generation of Care has already garnered unprecedented
support of more than $9 million to date from trustees, physicians,
employees, volunteers and friends of Hunterdon Medical Center toward its
$15 million goal.

“This extraordinary family has challenged our Hunterdon County
residents and future patients to raise $2 million by the end of 2011, to
automatically formalize this $1 million gift to our campaign,” said
Robert P. Wise, President & CEO of Hunterdon Healthcare System.  “We
are most grateful for this tremendous generosity and we’ve already
established a Meet the Challenge program to help spread the donor’s
enthusiasm toward our campaign and our commitment to the highest quality
healthcare for the community we serve.”

The $15 million fundraising effort, publicly announced last year, is
helping to underwrite a $22 million multi-year facility and technology
enhancement project that will allow for comprehensive clinical program
expansion in three key service areas: cancer treatment, surgical
services and cardiovascular care.   The first major milestone, the
expansion of Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center’s new radiation oncology
wing, was completed and is operational. The next priority is
underway…the expansion and renovation of Hunterdon Medical Center’s
surgical suite which includes the construction of two new operating
rooms.  Following the completion of the surgical services project, the
third priority will be a vertical expansion above 3 West which will
create a new floor to centralize all acute care cardiovascular services
including approximately 20 private patient rooms.

“We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to our benefactors who, with
this challenge, has generated a wonderful new momentum for the last
hurdles of the campaign that we are confident will reach its $15 million
goal,” indicated Kate Hartford, Chairperson of the Investing in a New
Generation of Care Campaign.  “Successfully meeting this challenge and
completing the $15 million fundraising campaign, the most comprehensive
and ambitious ever undertaken by the Hunterdon Medical Center
Foundation, will allow the Hunterdon Medical Center to make this
investment of $22 million to build on its clinical strengths, and ensure
that individuals and families in the region have access to the highest
level of care and treatment they need close to home.”

Through the years, charitable gifts have helped Hunterdon Medical
Center meet the challenging healthcare needs of the residents of
Hunterdon County and the region, such as the construction of a new
Emergency Department, major renovations to the Intensive Care Unit, and
the creation of the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.

“We will make this challenge happen because we have to,” said Wise.
 “We will make it happen because the people of this community need
these medical services, deserve them, and will rally behind this
generous challenge.”
