Giving back to the Cambridge community


 

Shimco and the family of Peter Voss, Shimco President, CEO and Owner, recently made generous donations to support the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation (CMHF) in its efforts to raise needed funds for new and expanded clinical services. As local residents, contributing to a world-class hospital with advanced patient care that supports the Cambridge community was highly meaningful for Shimco and the Voss family.

The hospital construction comprises a new wing and extensive renovation of the existing patient care wing, which will provide the necessary space to bring new and expanded clinical services to the community, including the purchase of crucial life-saving technology and equipment. The project includes 240,000 square feet of new construction and 150,000 square feet of renovations to the current B wing.

To support the CMHF campaign, Shimco donated $50,000 under the ‘Caring Businesses’ program and $25,000 was separately contributed by the family, on behalf of Peter Voss, his wife Jennifer, and their children Benjamin and Hannah.

In response to the donations, Surekha Shenoy, Board Chair, Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation said: "We are most appreciative of both Shimco’s and the Voss family's generous gift to our $50 million capital campaign for Cambridge Memorial Hospital. Their investment in local healthcare will benefit the entire community and we welcome them as a Caring Business and friend of CMH."

Peter Voss shared: "With Shimco headquarters now located in Cambridge, and being a long-time resident here, we wanted to give back to the community, from both a business and personal interest standpoint. Investing in our local hospital is a way that can provide valuable care to a large number of patients and their families, including our own employees and their families, for many years to come."

The Voss family recently had a private tour of the hospital’s new construction and were astounded with the advancements they saw. It will clearly be a state-of-the-art hospital in North America upon completion, allowing local residents to receive world-class services and treatments.
