Guthrie Forward Together Campaign Surpasses $10 Million Goal

November 10, 2021

In 2017, Guthrie’s Forward Together fundraising campaign kicked off with the goal of transforming our health care to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities.  

Five years later, support from within those communities allowed Guthrie to not only reach, but significantly surpass its goal of raising $10 million toward these efforts. More than 5,000 individuals, businesses, and grant-makers contributed, for a total comprehensive commitment topping $15 million. 

Mary Ann Dougherty, Senior Vice President for Strategy and Growth, Guthrie said, “We are grateful to the many donors who made this possible. Their generosity will help Guthrie to expand and modernize critical services within our communities.”  

Aligned with Guthrie’s strategic plan, the funds raised during the Forward Together campaign made the completion of several capital projects possible:  

  • Taylor Family Emergency Department at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital 
  • Heart and Vascular Center at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital 
  • East Corning Medical Office Building 
  • Big Flats Specialties and Rehabilitation Services 
  • Newman W. Benson Acute Rehabilitation Unit at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Towanda Campus  
  • Renzi Cancer Center at Guthrie Cortland Medical Center 

In addition, campaign support allowed Guthrie to add four new residency and fellowship programs – investments in facilities and talent that will ensure necessary care is available to the communities we serve for years to come.  

“As we celebrate our successes and all that has been accomplished, we find ourselves not at the end of our journey, but at an inflection point,” says Tricia Huston, Director of Guthrie Resource Development. “Together we will continue to innovate and find solutions to meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
