A Salute to Health

Newport Hospital Summer Celebration


Join Us for Our Annual Celebration to Benefit Newport Hospital

Please join us as we return to our signature gala event and kick off Newport Hospital’s 150th celebration.

Honoring the Inspiring Life Work of David Gordon

David Gordon, affectionately known as “Mr. Mayor,” is remembered by all for his kindness, wisdom, diplomacy, and humor. A member of the Newport Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees since 2009, David was a tremendous friend, advocate and ambassador for the hospital. As we come up on our 150th anniversary of caring for our community, it was important to us to honor his legacy. It has been said that Newport is a better city because of his leadership. It is our great privilege to honor David Gordon for all he has done for Newport Hospital and the community we serve.
