Salute to Health

Dear Friends,

Our greatest hope is that you and your family are safe, and healthy.

Normally at this time of year, we are reaching out to invite you to A Salute to Health. It’s Newport Hospital’s biggest fundraiser each year, and we all look forward to the festive gathering.

This year, nothing is normal. It is with the community’s safety in mind, that we made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s event. So rather than us throwing the party, we ask that you continue to support us in lieu of the gala. Your gift will save lives, bring hope, and help sustain Newport County’s only hospital.

Newport Hospital prepared fully for the onslaught of Covid-19 patients and worked round the clock to ensure the best of care for those in need. In its readiness, the hospital closed ALL elective procedures, surgeries, testing, and non-urgent diagnostic imaging—all of which are normally the foundation of the hospital’s financial stability. As well, patients have avoided coming into the hospital for the care they would usually seek. The net impact is a severe loss of health care revenue.

Your help is needed! Please join us in making a gift to Newport Hospital’s Emergency Preparedness Fund. Every gift matters. Thank you for your consideration. We salute you and send you our sincere gratitude.

With best wishes for good health,

Holly Bannister, MD Dory Hamilton Benson
