The Atlantic General Hospital Campaign for the Future recently received a donation of $5,000 from the Fasano family for upcoming projects, including the new John H. “Jack” Burbage Jr. Regional Cancer Care Center.

DAFA Inc. and the Fasano family operate the La Quinta Inn and Suites on 32nd Street in Ocean City, Maryland. Sal Fasano Jr. is a member of the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation Board of Directors and past co-chair of the AGH Penguin Swim, successfully leading the event for three years.

“Our family is honored to support the efforts of the Campaign for the Future and the growth of the hospital and health system. We recognize the need for a comprehensive cancer care center right here in Worcester County and believe the residents and visitors benefit greatly from the caregivers at Atlantic General Hospital each and every day. To have a facility that affords residents the ability to get the cancer care they need in their hometown and stay close to home is priceless,” said Fasano.

“We’re extremely grateful for the commitment shown to our not-for-profit community hospital and the generous support of local businesses like DAFA Inc. and the Fasano family. With the support of our community, we can help AGH meet the challenges of providing the very best health care services right here — close to home,” said Campaign for the Future Co-Chair Jack Burbage.
