Visionary $10 Million Gift to Brigham and Women’s Hospital NICU
May 15, 2020
In combination with a private gift from our Chair Emeritus Richard Smith, we have committed a $10 million leadership gift to Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) for the newborn intensive care unit (NICU).
BWH, one of the nation’s top-ranked programs in obstetrics and gynecology is the largest birthing center in Massachusetts.
After a large-scale renovation and expansion, the NICU is now the largest and most advanced in New England, caring for more than 1,000 premature and at-risk babies each year.
In recognition of this visionary gift, the Brigham will name the Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation Newborn Intensive Care Unit in their honor.
