Foundation reaches capital campaign goal
Tuesday marked the conclusion of Trinity Health Foundation’s capital campaign in support of Trinity’s new hospital and medical campus.
The foundation reached its goal of $15 million, which was used to fund various amenities, including the pediatric play therapy room, sexual assault nurse exam room, kidney dialysis machines, hospital connectors and chapel.
Chairman of Trinity Health Foundation Board Dr. Jeffrey Verhey said Trinity Health Foundation started the campaign in 2019.
“When asked how long it takes to build a healthcare facility like this, I say 100 years. Trinity started humbly in 1922 on the road that brought us to where we are today. Countless lives were affected in ways we will never fully know. This beautiful new facility allows us to continue that mission,” Verhey said.
Trinity Health President and CEO John Kutch said the campaign has helped touch the lives of the entire community and region at large and aims to create a future with the highest level of care available.
“The effort put forward to create this campus has resulted in a state-of-the-art facility that will be a center for health and wellness for generations to come. At a time where cynicism and doubt seem to flourish, we have seen first-hand so many generous people step forward to make this healthcare facility a reality,” Kutch said.
