CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE
Established when Norwalk Hospital opened in 1893, the Women’s Board has served the Hospital and community in multiple ways for well over a century. Today, the Women’s Board operates the Treasure House, a thrift shop, at 5 Isaac Street in Norwalk for the benefit of the Hospital. The Treasure House welcomes gifts of resalable merchandise and clothing in good condition. To contact the Treasure House, call 203-866-7104.
The Women’s Board also funds several scholarships and achievement awards for nursing students, cares for the Little Chapel, and provides specialty items for various clinical programs at the Hospital. Over the years, the Women’s Board has contributed several million dollars to Norwalk Hospital for a variety of programs, including a million-dollar gift to help create the Honey Hill Care Center.
Norwalk Hospital is fortunate to have more than 680 area residents who donate their time and talents from a few hours to more than 30 hours a week. These dedicated Volunteers comfort, augment staff services in clinical and non-clinical areas, and work hard to make patients feel more at ease and help the hospital run more efficiently. The Volunteers also offer a Medicare information and assistance service. For an appointment, call 203-852-3325.
