The Donahues are long-time donors to the healthcare organization. “In making this generous gift, the Donahues express their gratitude for the compassionate care South Shore Health has provided to their family and friends over the years and for its commitment to serving the health and wellness needs of our community,” South Shore Health President and CEO Allen L. Smith said in a statement. “Our recent decision to remain independent is the ultimate expression of that commitment.”
“We have experienced excellent care and been inspired by the health system’s strong new leadership and commitment to sustain a local, high quality healthcare organization, which is vital to our community. We are privileged to join others in investing in this vision,” the couple said in a statement. This project will not only enhance imaging quality and reduce the need for some patients to go to Boston, it will increase the speed of exams and play a role in addressing patient flow, the health system said in a press release. The expansion will help reduce the delay of care that can exist in the emergency department and ultimately make care more accessible and convenient for the South Shore community.
