Donor Story - Wilson Family 2011

Wilson family donates $75,000

The Wilson family's lead gift of $75,000 will honor Wentworth-Douglass Hospital's first pediatrician, Robert Wilson, MD, by naming the new family playroom in his memory. Dr. Wilson established Dover Pediatrics in the mid 1940s, left briefly to serve as a Navy reservist in the Korean War and returned to care for children until his retirement in 1986. He passed away in 2009.

Dr. Wilson's son, David Wilson described his father's commitment to the community. "Giving back to the community was always very important to my father," Wilson said. "He spent most of his life working towards improving the physical and emotional well-being of the children in the Dover area. He was always proud of WDH and the quality of care and services available, so it seemed only natural that the family contribute to the new Women & Children's Center in his memory."
