Crum & Forster (C&F) has a long history of giving back to the communities in which it operates – and where its employees live.
One of those major charitable efforts is with Atlantic Health System’s Morristown Medical Center, where C&F is in the midst of a five-year, $250,000 pledge, one that has played a vital role in supporting the hospital’s initiative to add two floors to the Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute, as well as offer peace-of-mind to dozens of heart patients.
“We are grateful for the tremendous support from Crum & Forster, which, along with the generosity of other local corporate and private contributors, has enabled us to house all of our cardiac patients under the same roof – improving safety, efficiency and workflow,” said Dr. Linda D. Gillam, Dorothy and Lloyd Huck Chair, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine and Medical Director, Cardiovascular Service Line, Morristown Medical Center/Atlantic Health System. “C&F’s philanthropic support has been instrumental in the hospital’s growth and success. They are a tremendous corporate partner.”
As a result of the ongoing philanthropic support from the community, Morristown Medical Center – the No. 1 hospital in New Jersey, according to U.S. News & World Report – has been able to add more than 55,000 square feet of clinical space, expand cardiac MRI capacity with a new scanner and establish 72 new private patient rooms. The donations also proved critical during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, as many of the new rooms were temporarily converted to handle the overflow of patients.
“Providing support to our local communities is deeply rooted in our corporate culture,” said C&F CEO Marc Adee, who is also the Vice Chair of the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center Board of Trustees. “In fact, we believe in doing well by doing ‘good,’ and that corporate social responsibility is at the heart of doing good business. Morristown Medical Center plays a critical role in ensuring the health and well-being of all of us in the community and we believe in supporting their efforts.”
C&F’s comprehensive CSR-focused programs demonstrate the company’s passion for driving positive change among the diverse groups it serves, through both charitable giving and community service and engagement.
