The Wells Society

In 1888, New Brunswick community leader and volunteer Grace Tileston Wells provided the funds to build and furnish the hospital’s first building on Somerset Street. She did this to honor her late husband, John Wells.

In 1916, Mrs. Wells said, “I built the little hospital as a cottage hospital, as it was all the town required. It has done good work. Now, a larger hospital is needed.” Today, what started as a “little hospital” is now one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers.

To honor Mrs. Wells, whose generosity and forethought contributed so importantly to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital of today, The Wells Society has been established to recognize and pay tribute to those individuals who have made an investment in the future of the hospital through creating a planned gift.

By becoming a member, you will join with others who recognize the important role of RWJUH to the future health of our community and who support the Hospital’s vision and mission including: excellence in patient care, outreach to the communities we serve, research into the causes and cures of medical issues, and the education of the next generation of caregivers.

There are many different planned giving vehicles from which a donor can chose to create a meaningful gift to the RWJUH Foundation. For more information on those vehicles, or if you have already left the RWJUH Foundation in your estate plans, please contact us today.
