Trinitas Heroes Gala 2022 Honoree: The Hackett Family, recipients of this year’s Celebrating Philanthropy Award

From the New Point Behavioral Health renovation to the new Trinitas Emergency Department, the Hacketts have supported just about every aspect of patient care at Trinitas. Anyone who has visited the Trinitas CORE Building has seen Thomas and Yoshiko’s names proudly displayed over the ambulance bays. And in 2014, the family’s generosity and devotion was recognized with The Hackett Family Ambulatory Surgery Center. The state-of-the-art Center has dramatically expanded access to convenient world-class surgical care for the people of our community, many of whom are impoverished with few options for care.

Trinitas Regional Medical Center is committed to the safety of our guests and communities. We will continue to monitor CDC recommendations and ensure that all necessary and appropriate safety steps and protocols will be followed. For more information, contact the Foundation.
