The public launch of Outpacing the Impossible: The Northwell Campaign, an ambitious $1 billion, seven-year effort to support Northwell’s promise to the people it serves, was recently held at Northwell’s Center for Advanced Medicine in Lake Success. The event brought together more than 600 of the organization’s highest-level benefactors who support initiatives across the health system’s footprint.
This comprehensive campaign supports capital projects, improves hospitals and clinical programs, and advances research and funding endowment for teaching and research initiatives. A significant portion of the campaign will also be allocated to the development of Northwell’s care locations in Manhattan. Northwell Health comprises 23 hospitals and more than 665 outpatient care locations throughout the New York metropolitan area and beyond.
Outpacing the Impossible includes all funds given by individual donors, corporations and foundations. Donors to Northwell have given nearly $500 million since the campaign’s inception on January 1, 2016.
Along with – and as part of the public campaign – Northwell has launched its first enterprise-wide employee giving program, which enables employees among all levels throughout the organization to participate. More than 5,000 Northwell employees – including 99 percent of Northwell’s leadership – have already given over $7 million to support projects and programs across the health system.
