St. Joseph Hospital reaches capital campaign goal

The new northeast tower building at St. Joseph HospitalSt. Joseph Hospital has announced it has reached its $12.5 million first phase fundraising goal for its new medical expansion project, the Northeast Tower. The hospital crested the $12.5 mark earlier this week when a number of significant gifts were made in support of the project.

Among the individuals and organizations that pushed the hospital over its campaign goal was the Orvamae Emmerson Endowment Fund, which gifted a total of $500,000 to the Northeast Tower project, as well as a recent gift from William and Martha Hoffman, local residents whose total gift exceeded $500,000. The two largest donors to the project were Jerry Carlson, who gave a personal gift of $1 million, and the McLean Foundation, which gave $2 million toward the tower project. These gifts combine with countless others from individuals and businesses in the community – too many to name, but whose support of the Northeast Tower capital campaign was critical to its success.

With the dollar-for-dollar match from St. Joseph Health, based in Orange, California, St. Joseph Hospital’s capital campaign total comes to just over $25 million, which will be used as a down-payment on the new medical facility.

"We are beyond excited to have reached our first phase fundraising goal," said Joe Mark, CEO of St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County. "Many people in our community joined together with us in support of the Northeast Tower and their gifts represent significant investments in the future of our community. Their support was critical to the success of this project."

Paul McGinty, executive director of the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation, agreed with Mark, adding that the timing couldn’t have been better to reach the first phase capital campaign goal, as tours were held this past weekend for employees, donors and the public.

"This weekend was a two-fold celebration for St. Joseph Hospital and for the community," McGinty said. "Not only have we reached our campaign goal, but our beautiful building was unveiled to our friends and neighbors here in Humboldt County."

The new building will open for patients in the spring.
