She Saved My Life

For Dr. Laura Sowerby, a generous, anonymous gift made in her honor was incredibly humbling. “Treating patients is very rewarding for me,” says Sowerby. “It is our mission at Lahey to provide the highest level of care. Through his gift, the patient is enabling us to grow in that mission, and I couldn’t be more grateful,” she says.

A Legacy of Gratitude

Everyone who has experienced lifesaving care at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is grateful for our caregivers’ expertise, compassion and skill. One second-generation Lahey patient, Windle (Win) Priem, and his wife Susan came to express their gratitude to physicians through philanthropy beginning with small gifts.

In the Name of Nursing

Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is dedicated to providing compassionate and evidence-based nursing care, and no one embodied that more than the late Jean Cunningham, RN. With a transformational $10 million gift, the family of Jean Cunningham has established the Jean Cunningham Department of Nursing and provided essential resources to support continuing education programs for Lahey nurses.
