An Extraordinary Year!
Nothing marks the passage of time quite like the growth of a child — or two! As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Alfond Center for Health’s opening, we are warmed and encouraged by the health of the first babies born within our walls — twins, Hannah and Samuel — who immediately made use of our Level II NICU and stamped approval on our transformation in service to you.
At the close of each year it’s difficult to imagine how the next 12 months can top the ones just passed. Yet every turn of the calendar brings new wonder, new celebrations and renewed gratitude for the community we serve and the remarkable people who make our mission real. After all, a mission is merely a statement of good intention until it’s given life. Sam, Jack and Anita — they give it life; Jorja, Jeannine, Samuel and Hannah give it life; all of our Walk for Hope walkers and our community fundraiser organizers and participants — they give it life. The hundreds of you who gift your support every year because you understand that our stories overlap and our health, as individuals and as a community, matters—you give our mission life and we are unspeakably thankful for you, your vision and your confidence in us to care for this great community.
As we look to the months ahead we look forward to growing, serving and celebrating with you, our wonderful partners in caring for this remarkable region!
