Thanks to worldwide support from individuals and organizations who share the Brigham’s commitment to transforming patient care, BWH’s Life.Giving.Breakthroughs. campaign surpassed its original $1 billion goal earlier this month – two years ahead of schedule.

The campaign is now reaching even higher, with a new goal of $1.5 billion, recently approved by the BWH Board of Trustees and Campaign Cabinet, in order to continue supporting life-giving breakthroughs and advancements at the Brigham.

“With so much momentum and progress, we have no intention of slowing down,” said BWHC President Betsy Nabel, MD. “Our extended campaign goal will help us leverage the groundbreaking advances taking place in translational medicine today, bringing us closer to the day when we won’t have to watch our loved ones suffer debilitating and painful conditions that disrupt daily lives and rob us of so much.”

The campaign, launched in 2013 to tackle health care’s greatest challenges and transform the future of medicine, has paved the way for several projects, including:

The Building for Transformative Medicine, carefully designed and constructed to foster collaboration between clinicians and researchers.

The renovation and expansion of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, allowing BWH to provide more personalized, precise care to our tiniest, most vulnerable patients and their families.

The launch of the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases, dedicated to accelerating treatments, prevention and cures for the world’s most complex neurologic diseases.

The establishment of the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation, dedicated to catalyzing innovations in trauma care to benefit military personnel and civilians affected by traumatic injuries.
