Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health


DANVILLE, PA -- Geisinger Health System (GHS) leadership joined donors, employees, campaign chairs, volunteer champions, auxiliary presidents, and others to unveil Donor Walls at three hospital locations in March. The walls honor individuals who have made significant gifts to Geisinger’s “The Centennial Campaign: Redefining Boundaries.”

The Centennial Campaign raised more than $171 million to advance Geisinger patient care, community service, research and education. It concluded on Sept. 30, 2015.

“All of this began with the transformational gift from Abigail Geisinger a century ago,” said David T. Feinberg, M.D., MBA, president and chief executive officer, GHS. “It continues today, thanks to all of the philanthropists and friends who have supported this campaign. Because of them, Geisinger is well-positioned for our second century of patient care, education, research and community service.”
Donor walls were unveiled at Geisinger Medical Center, Geisinger Community Medical and Geisinger Wyoming Valley (GWV). Campaign co-chairs Frank Henry and Bob Tambur were also honored for their dedicated leadership at the GWV event.

Campaign goals included expanding high-quality care even closer to home for more patients; supporting Geisinger healthcare professionals with educational programs of excellence; leading the way in cutting-edge research; investing in critical capital projects, and leveraging technology for even greater patient access throughout the system.

“For 100 years, we, and all who have come before us, have worked hard to make Abigail proud, make all of our patients feel like family, and of course, to ‘make it the best,’” said Dr. Feinberg. “These walls recognize our donors, as well as highlight and celebrate Geisinger’s history.”
