With UMCPP moving to its new home in Plainsboro in May 2012, local residents have shown their support through generous donations to Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS). Since the launch of the Design for Healing campaign five years ago, the number of donors to PHCS who reside in Plainsboro has increased by more than 65%. During this time, PHCS has worked closely with the Plainsboro Township community and its officials in planning the new hospital campus.
Here are some views and voices of Plainsboro residents who have recently made gifts to the hospital:
“Our recent tour of the new facility motivated me to give and also inspired both of my sons to pursue careers in medicine. I hope you will love giving to the new hospital, as I do.” —Jayanthi Premkumar
“I decided to give because I am delighted that UMCPP will now be in Plainsboro, conveniently located east of Route One. I hope others in my community will join me in supporting this wonderful asset. From the future plans that I have seen, I am excited that the hospital has become a magnet for the coming Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia facility, as well as an assisted living facility, and I am pleased by how the Millstone River Park will improve the environment. With real nature views closer to home, I look forward to taking park strolls.” —Jeanne Kuhlman
“Because our family considers UMCPP to be our community hospital, it’s our first choice for care and for giving. We are so glad that it’s moving next door. It’s so close, we can even walk there! When we heard about the move, we substantially increased our annual gift and hope that you will too.” —Sanjeev and Jody Nair
“As senior citizens, we are excited to have the hospital in our neighborhood. We’ve found PHCS to have a track record of outstanding service and to be a worthwhile charity. That’s why we give, and we encourage others in our community to consider PHCS among their preferred charities.” —Hugh and Bernice Devine
“I believe in giving to my local hospital because I am aware of health care’s national fiscal challenges. Giving to the hospital means supporting the local economy and my field of health care. In these times, that means a lot.” —Ling Mao
We hope you will join your neighbors in offering PHCS a gift that makes a difference in Plainsboro and greater Princeton. For information on how to give to the Annual Fund, please contact Paula Linhares, Director of Annual Giving, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609.252.8704.
