Your Donations at Work
Thanks to your donations, here are some highlights of the great things that have happened at the hospital.
"We just want to thank everyone for the excellent care and service extended to my husband during his recent Cataract Surgery on Dec 14, 2022. This includes the Pre-op RNs, wonderful caregivers, Front Desk Team, the OR Team and all others who had a hand in arranging the excellent transportation service to and back home from the surgical facility at Goose Lane. We had outstanding drivers for the trips. My husband's recovery has been excellent. We can't thank Yale New Haven Health enough."

"I’ve had two experiences with Yale New Haven Hospital. My mother had an aneurysm that other hospitals would not touch because of the risks - YNHH saved her life. My mother-in-law had three major surgeries and all went well. Amazing hospital, thank you for everything!"
