New London Hospital (NLH) announces that Sugar River Bank (SRB) has made a $25,000 pledge to support Building for Health, NLH's project to rebuild its Newport (NH) Health Center. This support, approved by SRB's Board of Trustees, was formally announced by SRB's President and CEO, Mark Pitkin who said, "We are committed to the community and strongly believe that the construction of a new health center is a critical part of sustaining the health and vitality of our town and its residents." In recognition of this gift, the new building's cafe will be named by SRB.

Additional donor naming opportunities are available for contributions of $5,000 or more. Donor commitments to the project to date exceed $670,000, with $350,000 of this amount pledged from the Roy Malool Family Foundation. The balance is from 100% commitments from NLH Trustees and senior staff and employees of the Newport Health Center; several Newport businesses and organizations; and a growing number of individual donors.

Construction is on track with completion expected by fall of 2016. The current health center will remain open through construction to continue to care for the community uninterrupted.
