In today’s uncertain economic times, it’s difficult to find a one-hundred-dollar donor, much less a $20 million dollar one! But Nuvance Health, a system of world-class hospitals in Connecticut and New York, located a generous couple that is helping to fund a new patient pavilion at Norwalk Hospital with their $20 million legacy gift.
Tune in today to hear my compelling interview with super philanthropists Carol and George Bauer, pillars of the southern Connecticut community for decades, who have ensured the best possible health and wellness services for the entire region.
Their latest donation will allow Norwalk Hospital to construct and renovate a new 188,000-square-foot Patient Pavilion that will feature:
- Sixty single-bed private rooms
- A new labor and delivery unit
- A 17-bed postpartum unit and new newborn intensive care unit (NICU)
- A state-of-the-art intensive care unit (ICU) and step-down unit
- The latest medical equipment and technology
The Bauers will also share their other civic commitments and how they live to give back – lessons for us all!
