In Honor of John Singer, M.D.
The event will honor Dr. John Singer, who has dedicated his professional life to educating surgeons and the wider medical community, and the excellence of the surgical residency program at Saint Agnes owes a great deal to his dedication. He served as Director of Surgical Education for nearly 30 years, from 1975 until 2004, while also serving as Director of the Hyperalimentation Team at Saint Agnes from 1983 until 2004. His commitment to the Saint Agnes Foundation has been unflagging, and he has served as Board Member, Treasurer,
Chair of the Grants Committee, and led the Physicians’ Capital Campaign initiative. The Legacy Committee is proud to honor Dr. Singer with the 2013 Caritas Award.
Community Vision, Vibrant Partnerships
At the Gala, plans will be unveiled for the development of the Cardinal Gibbons School property into a vital community asset which will provide recreation, housing, and retail opportunities to our area while still honoring the proud and historic legacy of Saint Mary’s Industrial School, and its successor Cardinal Gibbons School. Saint Agnes has partnered with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and Catholic Charities to create a mixed-use campus which will greatly add to the quality of our organization and benefit our city.
Your Support is Needed
Devoted to healthcare that leaves no one behind, Saint Agnes provides $10-$15 million in charity care and community benefits each year. In addition, the Saint Agnes Foundation awards community grants including those that support terminally ill patients, homeless adults and educational and crisis needs of associates and patients. By donating to Annual Giving, you will be supporting the priority needs of Saint Agnes Hospital, its patients and associates.
Funds will be applied to Saint Agnes Hospital’s $212 million project to transform its current campus. This revitalization will feature a new patient tower, redevelopment of our existing patient tower, expansion and reconfiguration of our Saint Agnes Cancer Center, enhanced surgical suites and a redesigned emergency room.
Make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.
The Saint Agnes Heritage Society honors our friends who have decided to leave a lasting legacy at Saint Agnes by including the hospital in their estate plans.
