2012 Federal Savings Bank donates $25,000 to WDH’s Garrison Wing
Federal Savings Bank’s long-standing support of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital continues with their most recent and most generous donation of $25,000 to name a conference room in the Hospital’s new Garrison Wing. Both the Hospital and Federal Savings Bank have served the same communities for over a century. Hospital President & CEO Gregory Walker, FACHE, acknowledged this tight community connection and thanked Federal Savings Bank for their support of hospital programs and services for many years.
“Federal Savings Bank has always been there to sponsor a Hospital event, participate in Foundation activities and give their time to benefit a cause when needed,” Walker said. “We are so grateful for their commitment to our hospital and the community we serve.”
Federal Savings Bank President James J. O’Neill, Jr. believes it is important to support the Hospital’s efforts to provide more space for community education in the new building and improve the overall health of the community. “We’ve made this donation for all the things the hospital has done in the community for people who are struggling - the Care-Van, the Community Dental Center and charity care,” O’Neill said. “These are services many people are unaware of. The hospital is trying to make our community a better place to live and, I think, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital is a real asset to this community.”
Both O’Neill and Kelly Glennon, Federal Savings Bank Vice President, emphasized the Bank’s role in encouraging other businesses to give back. “This area of Dover has a great, diverse set of strong, community-minded businesses that have been here a long time,” O’Neill said. “We try to encourage others to give back and we see it working everyday.”
Glennon added, “Federal Savings Bank has been in Dover since 1890 and seen the Hospital transform into a real community resource,” she said. “The Hospital’s helped so many people including our employees and our customers and we really appreciate what they’ve done to be a community resource, especially for low to moderate income families. Federal Savings Bank is proud to support the Hospital as they work to expand these important services.”
The Federal Savings Bank Conference Room is one of four conference rooms and a large auditorium in the new Conference Center on the first floor of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s four-story Garrison Wing. The Center, opening in the spring of 2013, will accommodate community education programs for groups of up to 300 participants. The Women & Children’s Center on the second level and private patient rooms on levels three and four will open in January/February 2013.
