|Caregiver program receives $100,000 gift|
The Bridgeport Hospital Foundation’s Honor Your Caregiver program recently received its largest gift to date – $100,000 from the husband of a patient expressing his gratitude for the care provided to his wife by Kevin Sprague, MD, and other Emergency Department staff. The donor did not want his name disclosed, preferring to focus attention on his wife’s caregivers.
The $100,000 donation almost doubles the sum of the nearly 230 other gifts presented through the Honor Your Caregiver program since it was established in 2012. In comparison, the average Honor Your Caregiver gift in 2012 was about $350.
