Meridian Health Foundation’s Giving Heals Campaign Bolstered by Team Member Support

January 21, 2020

Team members from eight Hackensack Meridian Health medical centers raised nearly $330,000 for Giving Heals, Meridian Health Foundation’s comprehensive fundraising campaign, which supports four important initiatives: strengthening oncology services, improving clinical outcomes, enhancing the patient experience and broadening clinical research and academic programs. To date, nearly $110 million has been raised toward a goal of $150 million to support Hackensack Meridian Health medical centers in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex counties.

The team members gave through Meridian Health Foundation’s Annual Team Member Campaign, which benefits the following Hackensack Meridian Health medical centers: Bayshore Medical Center, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital, Ocean Medical Center, Raritan Bay Medical Center – Old Bridge, Raritan Bay Medical Center – Perth Amboy, Riverview Medical Center and Southern Ocean Medical Center.

“Hackensack Meridian Health team members are vital to the organization’s ability to provide excellent care for our communities,” says Joseph Stampe, president and chief development officer, Meridian Health Foundation. “It’s truly gratifying to know that our team members have such faith in what we do that they’re willing to give of themselves to support our Giving Heals campaign. We are grateful for every donation, regardless of size, and hope that our team members feel just as good giving as we do using it to invest in technology, upgrades and programs that will help them continue to provide excellent patient care.”

Since 2015, Hackensack Meridian Health team members have raised nearly $1.7 million in support of hospital programs and initiatives through the Meridian Health Foundation’s Annual Team Member Campaign.
