Your Impact: The Lahey Cancer Institute 5K Walk & Run

At Winchester Hospital, some funds from the 5K are deposited into the Heidbreder Fund, also known as the Patient Comfort Fund. This fund is named for Richard Heidbreder, MD, Winchester’s former medical director of radiation oncology and is an important way the staff helps care for the whole patient, said Nurse Manager Sue Sheehan, RN, MS, OCN. About $3,000 in gift cards are distributed each month to patients in need.

One Hundred Years of History: The Winton Club Cabaret

As the spotlights lit up the stage at Winchester Town Hall, you could tell that Margaret Bertochi, Gayle O’Grady and Phyllis Gleason were proud as they took the stage — proud of the show 400 people were about to watch, and proud of the hours they and hundreds of volunteers devoted to it for the entire month of January. The Winton Club Cabaret, in its 100th year, is always a spectacle that raises funds for important programs at Winchester Hospital.

Thank you from the President

Dear Friends,

You, our donors, give us much to celebrate, as your gifts have an amazing impact on Winchester Hospital and our overall community. Now more than ever, as our providers and other hospital staff work on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, we need your support.

It’s a sacred honor to be able to take care of people in their time of need. That’s what we do. It’s why we’ve always been here at Winchester Hospital. This is an unprecedented time.

Our dedicated staff and providers have been working tirelessly to deal with and prepare for this COVID-19 crisis. Now more than ever it’s important to show them our support and help them in this fight.

It’s in this spirit that I’ve created the Winchester Hospital President’s Emergency Relief Fund. It is a vehicle for individuals to make donations that can be used in whichever way is most appropriate and effective. My wife Janice and I made the initial contribution to get it started. I invite you to join in! You can make your gift here.

Thank you for all that you do. It enables us to fulfill our mission. To care. To heal. To excel. In support of our community.

(You can read details of our preparedness in my March 17, 2020 message to donors here.)

With sincere gratitude,

Richard Weiner, MD
