Honor a Nurse      
As we prepare for National Nurses week in May, we ask you to honor a nurse who may have made a difference in your life.

Every day, our nurses offer skilled and compassionate care to our patients. They are too often unsung heroes. Please consider a donation to Nantucket Cottage Hospital in honor or memory of a nurse who positively affected your life. 

To honor a special nurse, please click here or contact the foundation office at 508-825-8250. 

Charity Brunch to Benefit Social Services
Join us at the Brant Point Grill on May 6 for a brunch to benefit the hospital's Social Services Department. Proceeds from the brunch will be donated to three funds managed by the Social Services Department: Andrew Holdgate Fund, Indigent Fund and Shorty Fund. These funds help patients with medical expenses, transportation costs to off-island medical appointments and basic living expenses while undergoing medical care.

Brant Point Grill will take the price of brunch off your check so that you may donate the cost of your meal or another amount to the funds. Traditionally, brunch is priced at $50 per adult and $30 per child. All beverages and gratuities are the responsibility of the guest.

Date: Sunday, May 6th, 2012
11am - 2pm
