The Women & Infants Hospital Foundation supports the exceptional services delivered each day at the hospital. Thanks to the generosity of friends and grateful families, Women & Infants provides technologically advanced care with thoughtful compassion. As the major teaching affiliate of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, the hospital also advances innovative research and trains the next generation of physicians and biomedical scientists.
Established in 2013 to honor former Women & Infants President Connie Howes for her many years of service, the Fund is driven by gifts from hundreds of individual and foundation donors.
To date, four investigators have been selected to receive funding for innovative projects studying preeclampsia, a sometimes-deadly disease of pregnancy; health risks of advanced maternal age; and causes of preterm birth. To give to this fund, please select the Howes Research Fund on the donation page.

My wife gave birth at Women & Infants in early September and we both couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. From the moment we arrived at the check-in desk until the morning we checked out, every single staff member went above and beyond to help us and ensure my wife was as comfortable as possible leading up to, during and after bringing our little one into the world.
They saved my babies and made sure they got here safely, while also caring for me and keeping me calm and relaxed in one of the scarier situations I’ve experienced in life. I can’t thank the doctors and nurses enough for the immaculate care they have given to me and it will be something I appreciate forever. My babies are now in NICU, and we have met another team of amazing doctors and nurses to work with our precious baby girls and help them grow. Overall, I have nothing but great things to say, and I’m unsure how I could ever thank the amazing team at W&I enough for all they have done for my family and me. I am forever grateful.
