Your Help Makes It Possible

Health care needs and technology change quickly. The support of donors like you allows Addison Gilbert Hospital to offer our patients a wide range of services and medical equipment to meet their needs today and for years to come. Philanthropy is critical to our continued success.

Your gift to Addison Gilbert Hospital stays at this hospital, to improve health care on Cape Ann and to help us deliver the very best health care to you, your family and friends.

You may choose to make an unrestricted gift to Addison Gilbert, to be used where needed, or you may designate your gift to an area of special meaning to you – for instance, nursing programs, medical education, cancer care, cardiovascular medicine or other clinical services.

In addition, you can make your gift in honor or memory of a family member, loved one, member of your Addison Gilbert care team, friend or coworker as a generous and heartwarming way to pay tribute to that special person.

However you decide to contribute, please know that we are exceedingly grateful for your generous donation and your investment in the health of our Cape Ann community.

Lifesaving Cardiology Suite

Generous gifts from the community enabled Addison Gilbert Hospital to open a new cardiology suite that provides expanded, high-quality cardiac care – all  under one roof.

Gloucester residents Mollie and John Byrnes created a $150,000 challenge on behalf of the Addison Gilbert Society, inviting the Cape Ann community to join them in support of the cardiology suite. Residents stepped up to invest in the next generation of care at Addison Gilbert Hospital.

The modern cardiology suite – made possible by philanthropy –  is located adjacent to the main entrance of the hospital. It has prominent visibility and expanded access that eases visits for patients and family members. The suite includes two physician offices, two well-equipped patient exam rooms, an easy-to-navigate registration area, and a spacious and serene patient and family waiting room.

By locating the cardiology suite within the walls of Addison Gilbert Hospital, patients can receive a broad continuum of cardiology services all under one roof for efficient and exceptional care.

Technology & Equipment

Medical technology today is a true marvel. It’s also truly expensive. At Addison Gilbert Hospital, we are committed to offering the best possible technology to our patients. That’s one reason why the support of our community is so important to us.

Among the latest technology we offer is 3D mammography, which is advanced breast imaging. This technology detects more cancers than standard mammograms and may reduce unnecessary biopsies. It produces clearer images and allows the radiologist who is reading the image to zoom in, magnify and optimize different parts of the breast tissue.

At Addison Gilbert Hospital, you will also find the Gorton’s Cancer Care Center, which offers convenient, local access to world-class cancer and specialty care. Offering this level of sophisticated care reflects our  commitment to bringing high quality health care to the Cape Ann community.

Cancer care available at Addison Gilbert Hospital is close to home and second to none ─ from the latest diagnostic technologies and evaluations, to innovative surgical and treatment approaches, to nursing care and social supports.

The Cancer Care Center is part of the Gorton’s Center’s Specialty Suite, which includes physician offices, examination rooms, and procedure rooms for individuals who require specialty care. This care is provided by physicians specializing in endocrinology, infectious diseases, ophthalmologic laser surgery, orthopedics, podiatry, surgical services, urology, and vascular services.

The support of our community helps us provide all of this expanded access to specialty care, making it easier than ever before for Cape Ann residents to get the high quality care that they deserve and that we are committed to providing.

These are just a few examples of the amazing technology available to you at Addison Gilbert Hospital – made possible in large part with the support of our generous donors.
