VINCENT MEMORIAL HOSPITAL FOUNDATION


New Corporate Name

Reflecting a legacy in motion, the year 2018 marked a major milestone in the distinguished history of Vincent Memorial Hospital. Thoughtful and thorough deliberations that spanned more than two years culminated in the Board of Trustees’ decision to add the word “Foundation” to the corporation’s name.

Our new name — The Vincent Memorial Hospital Foundation, Inc. — communicates the progression of our nonprofit organization from its 1891 beginnings as a Boston hospital for women in need to a charitable endowment dedicated to advancing the health of all women. VIEW MAJOR MILESTONES

To showcase the Vincent Memorial Hospital Foundation’s new name and vibrant ongoing mission, the new website highlights the foundation’s support of two key initiatives in the Vincent Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Massachusetts General Hospital: laboratory research in the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology, and the training of tomorrow’s leaders in obstetrics and gynecology. It also features stories about donors, patients and outreach events.

In addition, a newly launched quarterly e-newsletter focuses on what’s new at the Vincent — discoveries by faculty, profiles of clinical research fellows and studies by postdoctoral fellows, who work side-by-side with research faculty on innovations streaming from the VCRB. A total of 85 studies were published in 2018 by Vincent OB/GYN clinical and research faculty, advancing new directions in women’s care. Each month of the current year, we also post the latest publications, stories featured in the news media and accolades achieved by our faculty. VISIT OB/GYN NEWSMAKERS

Through our website, eNews and outreach events, we are excited to engage the general public in the work emanating from the Vincent, a world leader in obstetrics and gynecology. We thank you for your ongoing and enthusiastic support.
