Pledge Underscores the Company’s Commitment to the Mental Health and Wellbeing of its Community

Morristown, N.J., June 7, 2024 – Crum & Forster (C&F) announces a multi-year financial commitment to support development of the outpatient Behavioral Assessment Center – part of Atlantic Behavioral Health at Morristown Medical Center. The Center serves as an urgent care treatment facility for the members of the community who need short-term outpatient psychiatric care.

“This donation is made in the spirit of supporting Morristown Medical Center in meeting the community’s growing behavioral health needs,” said Marc Adee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Crum & Forster. “C&F remains deeply committed to ensuring behavioral health resources are available to those who need it.”

The mental health crisis is a significant public issue – both worldwide and in Morris County, home of C&F’s headquarters. C&F believes in supporting the communities where its employees live and work. In 2023, Morristown Medical Center identified the community need for more resources geared toward behavioral health emergencies, and Crum & Forster responded.

“The past few years have taken a tremendous toll on the mental health of our communities, many of whom turn to Morristown Medical Center for their care,” said Trish O’Keefe, PhD, RN, president, Morristown Medical Center and senior vice president and chief nurse executive, Atlantic Health System. “Crum & Forster’s generous gift to support our new Behavioral Health Assessment Center will help us continue to prioritize and serve this important patient population. We thank Crum & Forster for exemplifying corporate citizenship at its best.”
