The Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation:
- Seeks to engage all stakeholders in the future health of Nantucket residents and visitors, in order to broaden recognition of the Hospital’s distinction in primary care, emergency care and access to medical specialists
- Aligns its priorities with the needs of island residents and visitors for superior medical care
- Identifies and engages with national and international partners, including our affiliate, Massachusetts General Hospital, and other world-class institutions, on topical issues related to the provision of healthcare on Nantucket
- Raises private funds to support the strategic initiatives of the hospital
The foundation’s strategic objectives are to add private resources for the current expansion of the hospital and to identify future opportunities to strengthen our delivery of care.
The foundation seeks revenue from such sources as annual solicitations, capital campaigns, grants from government and philanthropic organizations, and through entrepreneurial collaboration with business leaders committed to the hospital’s future.
