(Paramus, NJ) The Bergen New Bridge Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Bergen New Bridge, has announced the launch of its fundraising campaign in support of expanding services and enhancing the facilities at the Medical Center.
“The Foundation has long supported the hospital as its fundraising arm and I am proud and excited to be officially launching our first capital campaign to support the emergency department expansion project and other facility and program improvements to the Medical Center”, said Foundation Chairperson John Cosgrove. “The trustees and I are committed to this campaign and excited to work with the Medical Center’s CEO, Deb Visconi and her team to successfully raise the funds needed. We thank fellow Foundation Trustee Robert Brown for being our first major gift donor for this campaign.”
“This is an incredibly important moment for our Medical Center. I am thankful to our Foundation and especially grateful to our first major donor, Robert Brown for supporting our Emergency Department Renovation Project, the initial project supported by the capital campaign,” said Bergen New Bridge Medical Center President and CEO, Deb Visconi. “The pandemic made it clear that our Emergency Department needed to expand to be able to treat highly infectious diseases, medical cases, and still manage the ever increasing number of substance use and adult and pediatric mental health emergencies,” she said. “Support of this project provides improved access to lifesaving emergency medical and mental health and substance use disorder treatment services and allows us to meet the needs of the communities we serve.”
