It has been an exciting year for the Foundation. In November, we gathered for the ribbon cutting and dedication celebration for the hospital’s beautiful new acute care and trauma center, which will open later this spring. Then on December 31, the Heart of Our City Capital Campaign came to a close. I am proud to report that, together, we raised more than $141 million to purchase critical medical equipment and furnishings for the new acute care facility.

When we began the capital campaign in 2011, it was by far the largest fundraising effort in the Foundation’s history. Over the past five years, more than 2,000 individuals, corporations and foundations have answered the call and donated to make this project a reality. When we celebrated the end of the campaign in December, we sang “The Impossible Dream.” It was a fitting tribute, given the scale of this effort.  I am truly in awe of the generosity of our community. We have learned that together, nothing is impossible.

I salute our campaign co-chairs, Judy and Rich Guggenhime and Pam and Larry Baer, who led this incredible project. Thanks to their leadership and your support, every patient at Zuckerberg San Francisco General will have access to cuttingedge life-saving equipment and technology, both now and into the future.
