The Foundation for Vassar Brothers Medical Center

The Vassar Brothers Medical Center Foundation raises philanthropic funds from friends across the community who wish to support the Medical Center’s mission of providing compassionate healthcare to the people of the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Report on Giving

Vassar Brothers Medical Center’s history of providing excellent and compassionate healthcare has been made possible by a tradition of generous community support. That support has enabled the Medical Center to purchase the latest technology, update its facilities, and attract topflight healthcare professionals – and all for one common purpose: to provide the people of this region with the very best in healthcare.

The Vassar Brothers Medical Center Patient Pavilion

Just two years ago, Vassar Brothers Medical Center broke ground on a 752,000-square-foot patient pavilion — an addition to the campus that will transform how patients in the mid-Hudson Valley experience hospital care. Scheduled to open early in 2020, this new pavilion will allow Vassar Brothers to provide a healthcare experience that addresses patient need at every level: patient and family comfort; ease of access to compassionate, well-trained caregivers; state-of-the-art facilities and treatment technology, and ready access to a broad range of primary and advanced clinical services.

Save the Dates for 2020

Nuvance Health is actively managing coronavirus (COVID-19) while maintaining business as usual at our hospitals and medical practices. The health system has now temporarily put limits on the number of people who can gather for meetings, seminars, and other events. Because our concern for the health of our community remains at the core of our mission, we are now taking the same degree of caution regarding Foundation activities over the next few weeks.

Please revisit this site to track the status of any event scheduled from now through May; we will monitor the COVID-19 situation as it develops, and make decisions on the basis of safety concerns closer to the time of each event.

Thanks for your patience as we negotiate our way through the coming weeks.

Throughout the year, the Foundation for Vassar Brothers Medical Center hosts several fundraising events designed to support the Medical Center’s top capital and programmatic priorities. Sponsorship support and participation from our physicians and dentists, businesses in the region and individuals who value the Medical Center assure the success of these events and, therefore, the ongoing progress of the Medical Center.
