Family Gives $10M Gift To St. Francis Hospital

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Officials at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford say they’ve received a $10 million gift that will be designated for patient care and acquiring new technology.

Hospital executives announced the gift Thursday, saying it was donated by a family that wishes to remain anonymous.

St. Francis, which is the largest Catholic hospital in New England, has received millions of dollars in anonymous donations in recent years. One donor provided $2.5 million last year, while two others gave $12.5 million and $6 million in 2008. The $12.5 million gift was the largest donation in the 617-bed hospital’s history.

Officials say the family that gave the most recent gift was grateful for the care provided by the hospital.
