Richard & Joann Aubut CCU

On September 28, more than 200 guests gathered to celebrate the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony of the Richard & Joann Aubut Critical Care Unit at South Shore Hospital. It was an exciting evening as colleagues, donors and supporters participated in an incredible event to usher in a new era in patient care.

The Aubut Critical Care Unit, dedicated in honor of the hospital’s former President and CEO, Richard Aubut and his wife Joann, will meet our community’s growing need for local access to advanced critical care services. Our highly skilled team of physicians, nurses, and other caregivers provide intensive care to adults with significant injuries, complex illnesses, or after major surgery.

Our new Critical Care Unit features 24 private rooms large enough to accommodate the sophisticated technology required to save and sustain lives. The unit also features comfortable space for family members so they may stay close to their loved ones. The new CCU is central to the provision of trauma and advanced surgical services and makes it possible for South Shore Hospital to provide a level of critical care services unavailable elsewhere in our region.

The construction of the new Aubut CCU is the central tenet of the Health System’s current Capital Campaign, Mission Critical: The Campaign for Our 2nd Century. Among our most generous campaign donors is Alan S. McKim, Chairman and CEO of Clean Harbors. For the second time in five years, Alan and the McKim Family Foundation made an astonishingly generous gift of $5 million to support our charitable mission of healing, caring and comforting.

Mission Critical: South Shore Health System Launches Largest Capital Campaign in Organization’s History

You are a part of something extraordinary. As a member of Presidents’ Circle, you understand the importance and the value of quality health care on the South Shore. South Shore Health System has provided care to the South Shore community for nearly 100 years and touches more lives than any charity in our region.

We are at a defining moment in our history. Mission Critical is the largest, most ambitious capital campaign in South Shore Health System’s history with a goal of raising $70 million by 2022, which marks the 100th anniversary of South Shore Hospital providing care to our community. As our communities grow, and the population ages, our region’s health needs are expanding.

Gifts to Mission Critical will help South Shore Health System build upon its past successes to improve how and where care is provided in the future and we can’t do it without you.

PepsiCo Honors Two Champions of Health Care

Mike & Mario

On Monday, October 2, our friends from the PepsiCo family of companies gathered at Black Rock Country Club to enjoy the annual Paul Snell/John Webster Memorial Golf Classic and honor the memory of two former Pepsi executives and South Shore Health System Foundation trustees: Paul Snell and John Webster.

The tournament was created to pay tribute to our dear friend, Paul Snell, a tremendous leader at Pepsi for more than three decades, and who passed away to cancer in 2009. He was a dedicated philanthropist who loved South Shore Hospital and served as a trustee of the Health System Foundation board for 15 years.

In 2015, we added John Webster’s name to the event to pay tribute to his vision and leadership in organizing this tournament at its inception. John was also a Foundation Trustee, a Pepsi bottling executive, a generous benefactor to the hospital and a dear friend to Paul.

Since the first year of the tournament in 2010, The Paul Snell/John Webster Memorial Golf Classic has provided more than $1.1 million in support for South Shore Health System’s cancer care program. We are truly grateful to Michael Matney, Vice President/General Manager, Pepsi Beverages Company; current Foundation Trustee and Chairman of this golf tournament for his leadership and support. Plans are already underway for 2018 and if you would like more information please contact Marc Cregan at Marc_Cregan@sshosp.org.
