Greenwich Hospital Foundation

Supporting a World-Class Hospital Close To Home

Greenwich Hospital Foundation’s mission is to secure funding for Greenwich Hospital so they can provide the safest and most advanced medical care. Since the beginning, Greenwich Hospital has been dedicated to delivering innovation and excellence in patient care, teaching, research and service. Greenwich Hospital is a member of Yale New Haven Health. The facility consists of 206 beds and serves lower Fairfield County and Westchester County. The hospital is a teaching institution and proudly represents all medical specialties and offers a wide range of medical, surgical, diagnostic, and wellness programs. 

In October 2019, the hospital held a special ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating a generous donation from the Lindemann family in honor of physician James A. Brunetti, DO toward the refurbishment of the ICU Waiting Room. “This gift,” said Frayda Lindemann, PhD at the unveiling of the new space “is but a small testament to the exceptional quality of care and warmth Dr. Brunetti provides to all his patients and to Greenwich Hospital which enables such excellence.” The Lindemann family made this generous donation as a thank you to Dr. Brunetti for his expert treatment and compassionate care of their beloved husband and father, George Lindemann, who was a well-known community member and business leader in Greenwich.

In December 2019, the foundation received another notable donation, $3 million in support of Pediatric Services. The gift will help establish a new Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center and will name the Pediatric Emergency Waiting Room. The new ambulatory care center will make patient transfers between the emergency room and the Center for Pediatric Care much easier.

Greenwich Hospital is embarking on a multi-year clinical growth plan, securing its position as the region’s leading medical center and healthcare provider. Areas of growth include pediatrics, oncology, heart and vascular, neuroscience and private rooms. By 2020, all patient rooms will be transformed to private rooms and plans are underway for a brand new 70,000 square foot Smilow Cancer Center Greenwich.

These stories show the impact that Greenwich Hospital and its doctors have on our community. We encourage you to visit their website ( to learn more about the clinical growth plan and how you can get involved. “Our mission is to provide exceptional health care and grow our clinical programs,” said Noël Appel, SVP and chief development officer of Greenwich Hospital Foundation. “A multitude of investment opportunities exist to partner with Greenwich Hospital for the future.”
