Newton Wellesley Hospital Gala fundraiser

Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s 14th Annual Gala

“Let’s Paint the Town Red” Event to Benefit New Cardiovascular Center

When: Saturday, May 11, 2013
Where: The Westin Copley Place in Boston.
Why: To Help Build a New Cardiovascular Center at Newton-Wellesley Hospital
Since 2000, the annual Gala has raised significant funds to help Newton-Wellesley Hospital build new/enhanced facilities, add programs and services, and deliver the very highest quality care to the community. This year’s event will help build a new Cardiovascular Center at the hospital.
Cardiovascular disease is still the number one cause of death in America for both men and women. In fact, cardiovascular disease takes the lives of more than 2,150 Americans each day – an average of 1 death every 40 seconds. It is the cause of death of more adults annually than from all cancers combined.

The Gala Chairs are Minou and Peter Palandjian of Belmont, and the Co-Chairs Committee includes Deborah and Bill Elfers, Tracey and John Cannistraro, Kim & Drew Conway, and Shirley and Chris Kelly, all of Wellesley, and Daniela and Mike Muldowney of Dover.

It’s Time to Act

Given the prevalence of cardiovascular disease in our community, plans are underway to expand the existing, solid foundation of cardiovascular care at Newton-Wellesley to create an even more robust, comprehensive program. These efforts will result in a new Cardiovascular Center to open in 2015.
This multidisciplinary Center will be a clinical collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Cardiology Division and will be dedicated to the early diagnosis, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with cardiovascular disease. Patients will have access to expert medical teams, including cardiologists, vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists and interventional radiologists from both Newton-Wellesley Hospital and Mass General—all in one convenient location.
“We have set a campaign goal of $6,000,000 to help build the Cardiovascular Center and we are hoping to raise $850,000+ at the Gala,” said Joan Archer, president, NWH Charitable Foundation. “The Cardiovascular Center represents an important step in bringing the highest-quality care to our community—the right care in the right place at the right time.”
