Physicians from Delaware Anesthesia Associates recently gathered at the Beebe Medical Foundation to celebrate the group’s $250,000 pledge to Beebe Healthcare’s “I Believe in Beebe” campaign.

DAA will name an operating room, post-anesthesia care unit and the Fourth Floor Staff Lounge at Beebe’s new Specialty Surgical Hospital on Route 24 near Rehoboth Beach. In attendance from DAA were Stephen and Kelly Fanto, Robert W. Wiltshire, Stephani Allison and Judith Gorra, Michael and Heather Ingerski, Yin Lim, William Doherty and Jillian and Joseph Dashiell.

With their gift, the DAA physician partners have joined the 1916 Leadership Giving Club and will celebrate Beebe’s founding year by donating $1,916 annually to support the hospital, said Judy Aliquo, president and CEO of Beebe Medical Foundation.

“I Believe in Beebe” is a historic campaign supporting the largest expansion in Beebe Healthcare’s 103-year history. Now in the public phase, the staff of Beebe Medical Foundation invites everyone to reach out to support Beebe Healthcare, Sussex County’s not-for-profit, community health care system. Gifts from physician partners, like this one given by Delaware Anesthesia Associates, truly make a difference and help Beebe provide facilities to care for patients.

As a community-based, not-for-profit healthcare system, Beebe Healthcare depends on the generous support of the community. Gifts to Beebe are tax-deductible and are channeled through Beebe Medical Foundation.
