Special Initiatives

Some places call them extras; we call them essential. These are the special programs that build on the foundation of our extraordinary care to improve quality of life for our patients and families.

Your support of our special initiatives enables Spaulding to go above and beyond to enhance care and enrich lives.

David and Carol Fischer

"Spaulding caregivers’ steadfast presence, expertise and reassuring demeanor are an integral part of every patient’s recovery."

— David Fischer

David Fischer, Spaulding patient and member of the Patient and Family Advisory Council, and his wife, Carol O’Connor-Fischer, were deeply impressed with the nursing care that helped David recuperate from a life-changing biking accident. They chose to give back by making a generous gift to support nurses’ continuing professional development.
