FHF - Foundation Supporting Fishermen’s Community Hospital

  1. 1. FHF - Foundation Supporting Fishermen’s Community Hospital By Angelo Consiglio
  2. 2. Introduction • A graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Angelo Consiglio, MD, has been a practicing physician for more than a decade. Currently on the staff of Jackson Hospital, Dr. Angelo Consiglio also worked as the surgery department chairman and as a credentials committee member of Fishermen’s Community Hospital. For more than 50 years, Fishermen’s Community Hospital has served the Marathon, Florida, area through its quality, innovative health care services. Supported by the Fishermen’s Hospital Foundation (FHF), the hospital has continued to expand throughout its history. FHF is committed to raising resources and awareness for the hospital, and to meet its goals, develops relationships with the area’s philanthropic leaders, collects direct donations, and hosts a number of events each year.

The 2015 Sweetheart Ball, thanks to help from the hospital's volunteers, featured a catered dinner, dancing with live music, a silent auction, and the presentation of a significant $500,000 donation. In conjunction with the Kentucky Derby, FHF also puts on a hat-making fundraiser before the Derby and a party the day of the event. A more recent fundraiser, the Florida Keys Craft Beer and Bubbly Fest, offered a variety of craft beer, wine, and local live music for the benefit of both the Fishermen’s Community Hospital and the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce.
