DANBURY, Connecticut (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

A $ 50 million fundraising campaign for Danbury Hospital and New Milford Hospital was publically launched yesterday at a high-energy, multimedia event at the Candlewood Inn in Brookfield, Connecticut. John M. Murphy, MD, President and CEO of Western Connecticut Health Network, announced that to date $ 30 million has been raised in support of Danbury Hospital and New Milford Hospitals.

Several major gifts have already given the campaign momentum. The new Emergency Department at Danbury Hospital will be named The Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Department of Emergency Medicine, while the Emergency Department at New Milford Hospital will be named The Arnhold Department of Emergency Medicine. The Spratt Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was named in recognition of a gift from Harold A. Spratt and his family.

The campaign, called Imagine Build Transform, will enhance the ability of the Networks hospitals to provide world-class, state-of-the-art, patient-centered care to the people of Western Connecticut and nearby New York. On the research front, the campaign aims to foster groundbreaking discoveries that will yield improved diagnoses and targeted therapies for patients.

According to Murphy, We are undertaking this campaign to ensure that Danbury Hospital and New Milford Hospital continue to provide access to high-quality, compassionate care that saves and improves lives. Our entire healthcare network is being transformed into a national model, one that shows how to deliver highly effective, efficient and personalized medicine. We are also demonstrating how pioneering research can be translated into care that addresses the needs of local communities.

Gifts to the campaign will support major new construction, new medical technology and other improvements for inpatients and outpatients, as well as groundbreaking research. More specifically:
