Beyond the Building, The Campaign for Newport Hospital

At Newport Hospital, our goal is to be your hospital—the one you turn to when you need care for yourself or your loved ones. With that goal in mind, we’ve been taking a hard look at everything we do. Guided by our new strategic plan and master facility plans, we’ve streamlined services, improved access to care, and enhanced the patient experience.

We’ve made great progress, but we have reached the limits of what we can accomplish in our current facilities. We need your help to get to the next level of growth. Your support of Beyond the Building will help address the hospital’s most urgent needs: a $12.5-million ED expansion and a $2.5-million upgrade of our ICU.
