Community touch

Thursday, May 9, 2019 |

The Bayhealth Foundation is pleased to recognize the hundreds of individuals, families, groups, philanthropic foundations, and businesses that generously stepped forward to support the Campaign for Bayhealth — Phase III. Through many events and celebrations, our donors have left a lasting community touch on the Bayhealth Hospital and Outpatient Center, Sussex Campus.

The Sussex Campus project team brought the facility designs to life by creating full-size cardboard mock-ups of the future spaces within the hospital and outpatient center. Our donors had the opportunity to tour the spaces, ask questions and even provide suggestions for the design teams.

Donors like the Fannin family, community members, and Bayhealth employees and medical staff were invited to leave a lasting mark on the project by signing one of the final steel beams used in the Topping Out Ceremony. The beams are located on the seventh level of the hospital, near the helipad.
