Fairfield County Bank Donates $250,000 to Norwalk Hospital Expansion

Nuvance Health has announced a major expansion to Norwalk Hospital, expected to be completed in winter 2025-2026. The seven-floor, 180,000 square foot expansion project stands to be the largest in Norwalk Hospital’s history and will provide modern inpatient care and a comfortable soothing environment.

The Patient Pavilion project includes renovations and updates to existing spaces, including a new labor and delivery unit and a new intensive care unit. In addition, there will be significant improvements made in the infrastructure of the existing building and updates to the technology used in the hospital.

Norwalk Hospital President Peter Cordeau says of the project, “We are deepening the partnership with our community that is the bedrock of our Hospital—not just by building a contemporary structure and renovating essential services, but by revitalizing all the programs that are central to our mission.”

Fairfield County Bank has donated $250,000 to the project, becoming the first business to support the Patient Pavilion project.

Fairfield County Bank is proud to support this reinvestment into the community of Norwalk. “We are excited to be able to support such an important expansion to one of the pillars of the Norwalk community,” says Ralph DePanfilis, Chairman of the Board at Fairfield County Bank and Norwalk resident.  “This project will enhance the life-changing healthcare Norwalk Hospital offers and make it more accessible to the community it serves.”
