Campaign for the New Elfers Cardiovascular Center
Construction is now underway on the 2nd floor of the main hospital for the new Elfers Cardiovascular Center, scheduled to open in mid-2015. The Center will be a clinical collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Cardiology and will offer a multidisciplinary program dedicated to the prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with cardiovascular diseases.
The Elfers Cardiovascular Center will build upon the excellence of existing Newton-Wellesley cardiovascular programs and add new services and expertise from Mass General cardiologists and vascular surgeons. The upgraded facilities will provide the best possible patient experience. The creation of such a center represents good news to those living in the region served by Newton-Wellesley.

The Charitable Foundation is currently working to raise $7 Million toward the $18 Million cost to help with construction costs and state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging technology.
“All of us know someone who has been affected by cardiovascular disease, and my family is no exception,” says William R. Elfers, whose family’s generous gift has named the Center. “This is clearly the next important step for Newton-Wellesley. This expansion will make a dramatic difference in the lives of so many in our community.”
Several other donors have stepped forward to make significant leadership gifts to the Campaign. These include the Louise and Alvin Slotnick family, Carol and Jim Taiclet, Roche Bros. Supermarkets, Roxanne and David Breazzano, and the Newton-Wellesley Hospital Auxiliary.
As the Center evolves, we are going to be able to treat more patients and save more lives and do that here at Newton-Wellesley, rather than having to send patients elsewhere. This is the essence of our mission... "to treat all patients and their families as we would a beloved family member."
Please join with us to support this exciting initiative. Naming opportunities are still available, and all gifts are important and will help us reach our goal. To get involved, please contact Joan Archer or Liz Gianakos at (617) 243-6243 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
