More than 66,000 visits in the first year
New Emergency Room and Heart Center opened in April 2015
Thanks to your generosity, Trinity successfully completed its first-ever fundraising campaign.
The all-new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department/Heart Center was the cornerstone of the campaign, with donors contributing more than $6.4 million in cash gifts to support the new building.
Many donors also stepped forward with planned gifts. Their generous commitments totaled $3.8 million benefiting parish nurses, scholarships, patient medication assistance funds and future areas of greatest need.
An additional $1 million was raised in support of other critical Trinity projects such as renovation of the Rock Island Surgical Center and the Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences expansion project.
Strong support for the campaign came from a wide cross-section of donors including physicians, staff, board members, corporations, foundations, community leaders and community members.
Trinity physicians alone donated nearly $2 million and Trinity staff donated more than $1.2 million to the campaign.
A lead gift of $1 million was provided by Larry and Marilyn Matteson, who hoped to inspire many others to give to important causes in the community.
Thank you for believing in the future of Trinity!
