Why Give

Most of us don’t give much thought to hospitals or other health care services until we need them. Yet, at one time or another, we seek health care for ourselves or someone we love. We all want and deserve the best care possible when we need it.

At Atlantic General, we are fortunate to have an excellent, not-for-profit hospital with superb doctors and a good financial base.

But there are no guarantees that the current financial base will always exist.

Every day, hospitals and other health care providers face new financial challenges in the delivery of health care.

What can you do to ensure quality health care for Atlantic General Hospital?

Your gifts, combined with the contributions of others, will maintain the “margin of excellence” for AGH and our community. You will experience personal satisfaction and the joy of knowing that you have helped to preserve expanded health care services for future generations.

Hundreds of individuals and businesses already support Atlantic General Hospital and Health System. Take a moment to browse through some of our giving opportunities, or contact us now to discuss how you can help Atlantic General be here for generations to come.

Atlantic General Hospital Foundation's Annual Appeal

As a not-for-profit, community-based hospital, Atlantic General Hospital and Health System holds itself accountable to the people we serve — you, your loved ones, and every person who lives in or visits our community.

In the past, donations to the Annual Appeal have helped to fund Atlantic General Hospital’s major second floor renovation; expand breast health services by adding a second 3D mammography unit in the Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center; purchase major medical equipment such as MRI, Bone Density, Ultrasound, Telemedicine and Smart Beds; develop SAFE (Sexual Assault Forensic Exam) Program, Ambient Technology, Behavioral Health Crisis Center, and many more projects.

Looking ahead, dollars from this year’s Annual Appeal will be directed to:

  • Community Benefits: Throughout the year, we sponsor or participate in health fairs and other outreach events where health education and screenings are offered. Most of the screenings frequently performed are free of charge, including:
    • Bone Density Screening
    • Carotid Ultrasound Screening
    • Hypertension Screening
    • Total Lipids and Glucose Testing
    • Prostate Exams and PSA Testing
    • Flu and COVID-19 vaccination clinics
  • Gudelsky Family Medical Center (under construction): This facility will accommodate the office
    practices of Atlantic General Health System’s primary care providers and specialists in northern
    Worcester County as well as additional providers as recruitment efforts continue for our medically underserved region. The new center will also house:
    • Lab Services
    • Outpatient Imaging
    • An additional AGHRx RediScripts Pharmacy location
  • Mako Robotic Arm-Assisted Joint Replacement System: This new technology allows our surgeons to create a patient-specific 3D plan and perform hip and knee replacements using a surgeon-controlled robotic arm that helps execute the procedure with a high degree of accuracy. This results in:
    • Improved joint flexion compared with manual knee replacement
    • Reduced risk of joint dislocation for hip replacements
    • Less soft tissue damage
    • Greater bone preservation
    • Reduced pain
    • Faster recovery

Atlantic General Hospital has been a pioneer in health care, bringing much-needed primary care and advanced specialty services to our community. Please join our donors in continuing to move health care in our community forward while also bolstering Atlantic General Hospital’s evolution as a leading provider of medical care.

Almost three decades ago, AGH dramatically changed the landscape of health and wellness for residents and visitors alike, and continues to strive to deliver the best medical care for all who need it. We deeply appreciate your past support and hope that you will consider making a gift to our hospital once more.
