Essex Couple Receives Philanthropy Award

Submitted by Middlesex Health

(April 2, 2024) —- Sally and George Mayer of Essex recently received the Distinguished Service to Philanthropy Award from the New England Association for Healthcare Philanthropy. This award recognizes extraordinary philanthropists who have made significant contributions to a New England health care organization.

Sally and George Mayer are long-time Middlesex Health donors and volunteer leaders who have made a lasting impact on health care in their community. All of the projects that they support have helped to improve and expand patient care, while creating greater access to care.

The Mayer Center, located in Essex, is named in recognition of Sally and George’s generous donation, which helped build the new center. The center opened in late 2022 and provides developmental services to children and adolescents with developmental challenges, including autism.

In addition, Sally and George co-chaired a capital fundraising campaign that raised more than $6 million to support the building of Middlesex Health’s Shoreline Medical Center in Westbrook. Middlesex Health Shoreline Medical Center opened in 2014 and provides around-the-clock emergency care, cancer care, diagnostic imaging and many other services.
