Friends of Beverly Hospital
The Friends of Beverly Hospital (formerly known as Beverly Hospital Aid Association) has a rich history on our North Shore. Since 1910, The Friends have been here at Beverly Hospital. The Friends have raised millions of dollars for Beverly Hospital programs and projects. In recent years, these funds have supported major hospital building and renovation projects, including the Main Lobby, Emergency Room, Maternity, the Special Care Nursery, the Critical Care Unit, and the Department of Radiology. From the day it began, 100 percent of what The Friends raises goes to the programs and initiatives it supports.
Through the years, The Friends’ contributions have deepened, grown and evolved with the times. Today, the group is a dynamic organization of men and women from all backgrounds and professions who share an unshakable dedication to creating and supporting programs and activities that enrich Beverly Hospital.

Projects We Fund
Since 1996, The Friends of Beverly Hospital has proudly supported the Connecting Young Moms program. This hospital-based program provides comprehensive pre- and post-natal programs to young women who have limited resources, and in many cases, also lack social and emotional support. They come to the program having experienced many of the challenges that poverty and young parenthood impose. In addition to financial support, The Friends provides these young women with warmth and caring that truly nurtures them as they learn to nurture their babies.
The Elizabeth Torrey Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1964. Through this fund, The Friends provides annual scholarships to numerous high school students who have volunteered a minimum of 100 hours at the hospital and plan careers in human health care. These scholarships are integral to a student’s ability to obtain a college degree.
