At Cooley Dickinson Hospital, we're profoundly grateful to community members who support us. Some of these special people choose to name Cooley Dickinson in their wills, ensuring our ability to deliver great health care to our community for generations to come. In fact, the hospital was founded over 125 years ago because of a gift Caleb Cooley Dickinson left through his will.
When our founder Caleb Cooley Dickinson died in 1882, he left a bequest of $100,000 to establish a hospital where the sick would be "tenderly and kindly provided for." His vision was realized when we opened our doors on January 1, 1886, and we know he would be proud of the care we provide today and pleased to know that so many have benefitted from his gift.
The Caleb Cooley Dickinson Society recognizes community members who follow Mr. Dickinson's generous vision and have designated Cooley Dickinson in their wills or made another type of planned gift.
Think about your needs, those of your loved ones and your commitment to Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Consult with your family, friends and advisers. Thoughtfully executed, planned gifts may provide important personal benefits today as well as a future gift to Cooley Dickinson.
Our staff is available to meet with you to discuss what option is best for you and how you might achieve your goals. Always seek the counsel of your professional advisers on the best estate plan for your individual situation.
Thank you for your interest.
