The Suburban Hospital Foundation

Supporting Health Care Excellence

The Suburban Hospital Foundation, created in 1996, serves as the fund raising arm of Suburban Hospital. Each year, thousands of community members, staff, and former patients generously contribute to Suburban Hospital’s cutting-edge stroke program, level II trauma center and emergency department, pediatric center, and its centers of excellence in cardiac care, orthopedics, neurosciences and oncology.  Recent gifts have transformed nursing education, enhanced clinical programming, and provided access to state-of-the-art technology.

The Foundation fulfills its mission by encouraging Annual Fund gifts, by actively seeking major and planned gifts, and by managing a variety of enjoyable special events
