FREDERICK, MD – Delaplaine Foundation, Inc. has generously provided Frederick Health with a leadership gift of $250,000 in support of the ReEnvisioning Critical Care Campaign to fund the renovation and expansion of the hospital’s critical care service areas.

“Delaplaine Foundation, Inc. has been a generous benefactor to the hospital for nearly 20 years. Their generosity has touched many areas of the hospital. Patients who have utilized the Prenatal Center, the James M Stockman Cancer Institute, or the cardiac, emergency and critical care units of the hospital, have benefitted from Delaplaine Foundation’s charitable gifts. We are so very fortunate to have Delaplaine Foundation as a partner in our mission to positively impact the well-being of every individual in our community,” stated Frederick Health President & CEO Tom Kleinhanzl.

“Delaplaine Foundation, Inc. has been proud to partner with Frederick Health since our inception in support of meeting the healthcare needs of the greater Frederick County community. Our latest grant funding as a lead gift for the renovation and expansion of the hospital’s critical care areas is essential in meeting the emergency and critical health care needs of an ever growing community while ensuring that patients are receiving first class care right here rather than having to travel elsewhere. As the sole community provider of emergency and acute care services in the fastest growing county in the state of Maryland, we recognize Frederick Health Hospital’s indispensable value as a vital community and regional partner and our ongoing support of their life-sustaining/life-saving work is in keeping with our mission to enrich the quality of life all,” stated Delaplaine Foundation President Marlene Young.

The ReEnvisioning Critical Care project is a $45.8 million capital construction project on the hospital’s 7th Street campus to redesign the emergency department to accommodate adult and pediatric patients, modernize the intensive care unit and expand diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac services to meet current and future demand. The project is expected to be completed in 2023.
