Throughout our history, thousands of people have supported the hospital's good work. Among the more recent initiatives our donors have helped make possible:
New Britain General campus
- Emergency Department expansion and renovation -
With generous support from donors, the hospital completed a $6.5 million ED expansion and renovation project that added 10,000 square feet and 11 beds (for a total of 45 beds); created private rooms instead of beds separated by curtains and updated equipment, including technology allowing transmission of X-ray and CT scan images to physicians, providing them better access to the information they need to treat patients.
- American Savings Bank Radiation Oncology Treatment Center - Opened in 2005, the facility offers advanced technology in a comfortable setting. Treatments include intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), which targets tumors while sparing healthy surrounding tissue.
Hundreds of generous donors helped make the center possible, including the American Savings Foundation, which made a gift of $1 million to this project.
- Special Procedures suite renovations - We renovated and updated our Cardiac Catheterization and Interventional Radiology suites. State-of-the-art technology allows physicians to more precisely evaluate and treat cardiac, vascular and other conditions.
Bradley Memorial campus
- Open MRI of Southington - Offering a high-resolution imaging device that can produce more detailed scans with greater patient comfort. This facility and equipment were made possible by a $450,000 bequest by Jeanetta H. Nikolais.
- Breast specific gamma imaging - Bradley Memorial was the first hospital in Connecticut offering one of the most advanced tools for detecting breast cancer.
