In its twelve year history, the CHA Invitational has raised almost a million dollars to support key initiatives to improve the health of local residents.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to completely renovate and upgrade the Emergency Department at the Whidden Hospital campus, a facility that serves over 40,000 patients each year. The new Emergency Department features state-of-the-art exam rooms, triage areas, and a computerized patient tracking and monitoring system.
Funds were also used to expand Cardiology services and purchase new equipment. Heart disease is the #1 killer in America, so it was critical to provide these services for our community. Golf proceeds have also been used to purchase special chairs and equipment to make our older patients more comfortable.
We are very pleased that proceeds from this year's Invitational will benefit our new Patient Experience of Care initiatives at all three CHA Hospital campuses - Cambridge, Somerville, and Whidden.
