Campaign 3SIXTY, the largest fundraiser in Morristown Medical Center history, toppled its $100 million goal, raising $106,064,000 for 20 projects across the hospital.
"The community’s exceptional philanthropic investment through Campaign 3SIXTY has given us the resources to establish critical new programs, advance technology, and improve care in our community that keeps us on par with the top hospitals in the nation," said President Trish O'Keefe, PhD, RN. "We will also be able to provide better care coordination as we expand our services and facilities.”
Led by Finn Wentworth, vice chairman of the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center board, the campaign drew widespread support from physicians, employees, corporations, foundations and, most enthusiastically, community members, some of whom no longer even reside in New Jersey. Among the 22 gifts of $1 million or more was the Women's Association's contribution of $5.3 million, the campaign's largest donation.
In addition to supporting ongoing programs, including the Carol W. and Julius A. Rippel Breast Center, the Deskovick Maternity Center, the Lois A. Reid Fellowship in Breast Imaging, the Sameth Emergency Department, and the Project Independence relief fund, the campaign is funding several initiatives for the first time. These include:
- Chambers Center for Well Being
- Chanin T. Mast Center for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
- David and Joan Powell Center for Healthy Aging
- Farris Family Center for Advanced Medicine in Pediatrics
- Grant Parr, MD, Endowed Chair in Cardiovascular Surgery

- Huff-Winters Atrial Fibrillation Center
- Jacobs Levy Equity Management Personalized Genomic Medicine Program
- Leonard B. Kahn Head and Neck Cancer Institute
