To date, the Tower Campaign has raised more than $258 million in cash and pledges in private support toward a goal of $363 million, including $45 million for furnishings and equipment.
Major new Tower gifts and pledges include contributions to name the Bridge to Healing connecting the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower with the Judy and Sidney Swartz Center for Emergency Medicine. The Bridge to Healing is vitally important because it will enable physicians in offices and labs in the CEM to access the Tower easily and in a much more timely manner than if they had to go down to the ground level and cross over to enter the Tower. Saving time is, of course, a major consideration in the treatment of critically ill patients.
The Bridge to Healing is a very prominent component of the new Ein Kerem campus and will provide an essential connection between two state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to offering patients the most comprehensive care.
