About Newport Hospital Foundation
Through philanthropy, the Newport Hospital Foundation endeavors to support superior, compassionate and state-of-the-art health care for the well-being of the community.
The trustees advocate for the needs and mission of Newport Hospital, and devote their time and resources to sustaining and advancing those initiatives by giving generously, serving on committees, supporting special events and acting as ambassadors in the community.
Since the hospital’s opening in 1873, philanthropy has been the bedrock upon which its service to the community has been built. Evidence of the generosity of our donors is the introduction in summer 2016 of state-of-the-art digital breast tomosynthesis technology, enabling 3-D mammography that yields clearer and more accurate images, improving the detection of cancers. This advance was made possible thanks to a generous lead gift of $100,000 from BankNewport and to the overwhelming support of donors.
