THE GUDELSKY FAMILY DONATES $4 MILLION TO ATLANTIC GENERAL HOSPITAL’S CAPITAL CAMPAIGN EXCEEDING $10 MILLION CAMPAIGN GOAL

Berlin, Md. – The Gudelsky family donated a generous $4,000,000 towards the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future. The family’s contribution came in at the Motown After Party, the final event for the Capital Campaign. This donation is the largest single private donation Atlantic General Hospital has ever received.

“The Homer and Martha Gudelsky Family Foundation, the Gudelsky family, Rolfe, Ioana and I stand in strong support of Ocean City, Worcester County, and its neighboring towns and communities,” said John Gudelsky.

This gift, along with proceeds from the Motown After Party and additional outstanding pledge confirmations, will bring the campaign’s final totals to approximately $12.5 million, exceeding the $10 million goal.

“On behalf of our Foundation Board, we are overwhelmed and honored by this incredible gift to Atlantic General Hospital. The Gudelsky Family has been extremely philanthropic to many organizations throughout Maryland and beyond. We can't thank them enough for this monumental donation, that will touch the lives of so many in our community,” stated Todd Ferrante, chair of the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation.

The funds raised during the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future will allow Atlantic General Hospital to complete $35 million in capital projects. Among them is the completion of a new 18,000-square-foot full-service cancer care center, completion of the women’s health center in West Ocean City, renovation of existing surgical facilities and expansion of emergency services within Atlantic General Hospital as well as improvements to inpatient care areas.

“As one of the Campaign chairs, I am incredibly honored to receive the support of the Gudelsky family. They have given so much to so many and they embody the essence of benevolence. To have our Capital Campaign culminate with such an incredible outpouring of generosity by the Gudelsky’s is far beyond our expectation. I can comfortably say that the community is grateful for the countless lives that will be changed for the better as a result of their magnanimous gift,” stated Michelle Fager, co-chair of the Campaign for the Future at Atlantic General Hospital.
