Saturday, January 20th, over 150 people gathered to commemorate the Briggs family and to celebrate the official Grand Opening of the $15 million NCH Briggs Health Pavilion in downtown Naples.
The new state-of-the-art Wellness Center, built by Gates McVey was made possible by a very generous endowment by the Briggs family. Dr John Briggs was the Chairman of the Board for 16 years at NCH, and his mother Beatrice Branch Briggs was one of the original founders of the hospital. Over 40 members of the Briggs family were present for the occasion.
Speakers at the event included NCH Board of Trustees Chairman Carl Westman, NCH President and CEO Dr. Allen Weiss, Gates McVey Chairman Todd Gates, and Mary Jane Briggs. The event welcomed guests to take guided tours through the impressive facility, which since opening its doors in October, has boosted its membership by over 400 new members.
