Annual Fund Letter

As the holidays approach, I am writing to ask for your support of Swedish Covenant Hospital…your community hospital. We exist to serve you and your family through a wide range of high quality care – from routine, preventive services to treatment for chronic and acute medical issues.

Charitable donations have helped make Swedish Covenant a thriving, independent, safety-net community hospital – one that recently has been named a 2013 Top Hospital by The Leapfrog Group! We are the only hospital in Chicago and among 55 urban hospitals in the nation to receive this highly-selective honor for surpassing safety and quality standards.

Our commitment to providing safe, high-quality care underlies the new Women’s Health Initiative that will launch next year. Anchored by the Mayora Rosenberg Women’s Health Center, we will offer a variety of programs and services designed to transform the way we care for our diverse community. Our efforts will help expand access to health care education and services, reaching more women and families in our neighborhood.

Please consider making a gift today. It is your gift that will help support the Women’s Health Initiative and our ability to provide the safest, highest-quality of care for our community. Your gift will help us care for hundreds of patients – whether they face an urgent need, a devastating diagnosis or seek to improve their overall health and quality of life.

We count on our community’s support now more than ever. Medical advances and the cost of providing high quality care continue to outpace the medical payments we receive. Your tax-deductible gift can help us stay at the leading edge of medicine and provide hope, healing and recovery for all of our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

Please give generously to the Swedish Covenant Hospital Annual Fund Drive. Your gift of $25, $100, $250, or more will provide resources that make an immediate impact for our community. Your donation will make a world of difference, I promise you.

With my best holiday wishes,

Mark Newton, President and CEO
