Quarter Backers



The Quarter Backer program was founded in 1977 by John P. Grattan and is comprised of local small business members and individuals who contribute annually to support the Hospital. Quarter Backers have been instrumental in many Hospital projects and over the years have raised funds for such programs as the Breast Health Center, our physical therapy and rehabilitation services and renovations to the Operating and Recovery Rooms to name a few.

For the past decade, the funds raised by the Quarter Backer program have been restricted to the Kathleen D. Allen Maternity Center which opened its doors in November of 2007.  This vital project would not have been possible without the efforts of Quarter Backer co-chairmen Tim Maran and George Kazdin (pictured above) who stepped down as co-chairman at the end of 2014.  

In 2015 Quarter Backer donations will fund the purchase of sophisticated Fetal Monitoring Technology to aid our physicians and nurses in caring for newborns during labor and delivery. Our goal is to raise $100,000 because we have already received a pledge of $100,000 from a generous donor. We also welcome new Quarter Backer co-chairs Paul Brennan, Jay Decker and Lisa Kombrink. This year we are also launching our new program of membership benefits. Please click here to view the benefits associated with each of the different Quarter Backer giving levels.
