2017 Closer to Free Bike Ride for Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven:

Each year, the Closer to Free community, which consists of cancer survivors, patients, their family members and friends, come together to participate in a bike ride that raises money to support programs and research at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven. The event also raises people’s spirits and instills a terrific sense of belonging to something much larger – an incredible caring community. This year the event will take place on Saturday, September 9th, 2017. Participants will have the opportunity to ride the popular 10 mile route, as well as the wonderfully scenic 25, 62.5 or 100 mile routes.

The all-day event kicks off at the Yale Bowl in New Haven, where thousands of riders, volunteers and supporters are gathered for the opening ceremony. After riders leave the Bowl, all bikers are routed to stop at the entrance of Smilow Cancer Hospital. Here they are cheered on by patients, their families, hospital staff, ride sponsors and volunteers. Riders always talk about this moment as the inspiration that fuels them during their ride. The excitement and enthusiasm is contagious, as expressed here in the patient story below: 


Christine Festa

Volunteer 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2011

One of the highlights of every Closer to Free Ride is the Smilow Salute, when our riders get to see and embrace the staff and patients they’re riding for. This year is Christine Festa’s second year volunteering with the Smilow Salute Cheer Team. Her surgery and recovery at Smilow in

2014 coincided with the Closer To Free Ride, where she found herself down on the street experiencing something that would stick with her forever. She knew she needed to be back after her discharge.

“During my stay at Smilow, I didn’t know the results of my biopsies but I did know, deep down, that remaining in a positive frame of mind was the right path,” she remembers. “I was determined to let everyone know by my smile that I was strong.” Christine’s nurses, doctors and other caregivers at Smilow responded to and supported her positive attitude. She gained just as much by venturing off her floor to attend the Ride. She was inspired to watch the Ride primarily for those patients who could not physically make it downstairs. It was not easy to get her moved out for the trip to the street but her nurse made sure she was ready – at least PJ’s would be a step-up from a hospital gown! Downstairs, Volunteer Annie Kaplan zoomed right in on her in an attempt to feed her. Upon learning that Christine was on a clear liquid diet, Annie sent her husband to buy her an apple juice. “I am still amazed by how welcoming and supportive the entire group was,” Christine says. “Their generous kindness gave me strength and hope.”

Christine remembers being down on the street to watch the ride with so many from Smilow. “There is an energy you can feel when watching that ‘wall of riders’ move past you - it’s electrifying!” she recalls. “You know instinctively that, along with riding for their own loved ones, they ‘Ride for YOU’. The riders’ energy is combined with that of the patients, caregivers and volunteers in attendance; some holding posters and cheering exuberantly, some quiet and reflective, all demonstrating their gratitude to the riders – It is so inspiring!”

A CTF Ride marshal abruptly approached Christine and said “I want to take a picture with you” as he pointed to her. “It was an incredible feeling, that someone I didn’t even know wanted me to know that my condition mattered – not just to my friends and family but even to a stranger,” she marvels. As a volunteer, Christine recognized that same marshal at the 2015 Ride and was also able to cheer on her oncologist, Dr. Deshpande, as he biked past Smilow. Christine says that volunteering on the CTF Ride is an honor. While shy to solicit for donations, having a page on the CTF Ride website makes it easier. She’s grateful to ALL donors to CTF and for all that the Ride provides. “I truly wish every patient could experience what I was blessed to receive in person from the CTF Ride”, she says. “In some small way I want to pay-it-forward and be there for other patients in honor of Annie, my fabulous nurses and caregivers, Drs. Han, Deshpande & Rutherford and their associates, and everyone I’ve met through CTF. My goal is to make another patient feel as special as they all made me feel that awesome autumn morning.”

The four routes will take participants through New Haven, Hamden, West Haven, Woodbridge, North Haven, Durham, North Branford, East Haven, Branford, Guilford, Madison, Clinton, Westbrook, Chester, Essex and Old Saybrook. There are strategically placed rest stops throughout the course, where riders can stop to refresh themselves, with water, sandwiches, oranges, bananas and other high protein snacks and then they are cheered back onto their course.  Riders finish at the Yale Bowl, where they will rejoin all who are waiting for them.  All day long at the Bowl, one can experience live entertainment, children-friendly games and enjoy food, beverages, and even a beer garden, as well as view some educational exhibits. The festivities conclude after the last rider crosses the finish line to the cheers of hundreds from the Closer to Free community, still gathered for this special moment. All are welcome to join the activities.

The vision is to enhance the lives of those we serve by providing access to integrated, high-value, patient-centered care in collaboration with others who share our values. The vision acknowledges the need to carefully choose partners to achieve our goals.

The four-pronged mission of the hospital remains committed to innovation and excellence in patient care, teaching, research and serviceto our communities.

Our new system-wide values reflect responses for a "desired culture" from our employees, leaders and physicians, which are expected to be demonstrated in both individual and organizational behaviors. These values are patient-centered, accountability, integrity, respect and compassion.

Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) was founded in 1826 as the first hospital in Connecticut and the fourth voluntary hospital in the nation, with 13 beds and an affiliation with the medical institution of Yale College, founded in 1810. The hospital’s name changed throughout the years to reflect new alliances, but the fundamental mission of the hospital stayed constant. Founded as a charitable institution for the care of the poor, the role of the hospital soon expanded to include care for the entire community.

Today, Yale New Haven Hospital is a non-profit, 1,541-bed tertiary medical center receiving national and international referrals. Yale New Haven Hospital includes Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven, Yale New Haven Children's Hospital and Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital.

Relying on the skill and expertise of more than 4,500 university and community physicians and advanced practitioners, including more than 600 resident physicians, Yale New Haven Hospital provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary, family-focused care in more than 100 medical specialty areas.  In FY16, there were 79,801 inpatient discharges and 1.2 million outpatient encounters, while there were nearly 152,800 Emergency Department visits, which demonstrate the clinical depth and breadth of the hospital’s reach.

Since its founding, the hospital has been an institutional anchor in the community and the safety net hospital for the region, serving as the largest provider of free and under-reimbursed care in the State of Connecticut in terms of numbers and percentages. In FY16, YNHH provided $124.1 million in total uncompensated care, which includes $88.4 million in free and charity care, plus $35.7 million in bad debt.

As the primary teaching hospital for Yale School of Medicine (YSM), we have supervised physician residents and fellows supporting our medical staff by providing around-the-clock coverage and insightful, research-supported patient care.

Yale New Haven Hospital regularly ranks among the best hospitals in the U.S. and is accredited by The Joint Commission. In conjunction with YSM and Yale Cancer Center, YNHH is nationally recognized for its commitment to teaching and clinical research.

In addition to providing quality medical care to patients and families, Yale New Haven Hospital is the second largest employer in the New Haven area with more than 12,000 employees. We are also the flagship member of Yale New Haven Health System.


We are pleased to share a few of Yale New Haven Hospital’s (YNHH) accomplishments from Fiscal Year 2016, which include the following:

In January, the hospital opened a 15-bed inpatient unit for bariatric and gastrointestinal surgery patients at the Saint Raphael Campus that was specially designed to meet the needs of bariatric patients and is a key component of the Hospital’s multidisciplinary Bariatric Center.

The new Smilow Cancer Hospital (SCH) Phase I Clinical Trials unit opened on Park Street. The unit, which includes 12 infusion chairs and four exam rooms, is the first expansion of SCH’s infusion space since it opened in 2009, and is uniquely designed to manage patients who are enrolled in early therapeutic clinical trials.

The YNHH Transplantation Center (YNHTC) announced the formation of a new Center for Living Donors at YNHH, which is expected to be opened in the coming months. The Center’s services include long-term, follow-up care at no out-of-pocket cost to the living donors of a kidney or liver to a transplant recipient. The YNHTC received national acclaim for its role in facilitating a revolutionary organ transplant between two HIV-positive patients, which was the nation’s first organ transplant of this kind, and was one of eight transplant centers to receive approval from the United Network for Organ Sharing to accept organs from HIV-positive donors. In addition, the YNHTC celebrated a milestone when it performed its 1,000 living donor kidney transplant in May, 48 years after it performed its first living donor kidney transplant in 1968.

YNHH took part in several medical breakthroughs. It was the first hospital in Connecticut to perform a new, less invasive procedure to help clear carotid arteries using the TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR) procedure, which protects the brain from stroke risk during carotid artery stenting. The nation’s first thyroidectomy through the mouth was performed, which avoids visible scarring in patients.


Philanthropic goals support hospital initiatives and healthcare programs that fall within the scope of the hospital’s major service lines – Heart & Vascular; Cancer (Oncology); Transplantation; Children’s (Pediatrics); Neurosciences; Women’s Health; and Musculoskeletal Care. Capital projects focus on improving aging facilities to meet technological advances and new standards of care. Top five most pressing needs include:

“First for the Future: A Campaign for Neonatal Intensive Care” at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital (goal $25 million.)
“Center for Musculoskeletal Care” (goal $15 million first phase)
 “Closer to Free” bike ride to benefit cancer research and services at Smilow Cancer Hospital (goal $2.6 million)
To support a “Comprehensive Neurovascular and Stroke Treatment Center” (goal $50 million)
In response to the tragic opioid epidemic that has affected thousands of families in Connecticut, this year we are placing special emphasis on supporting programs in the hospital's Emergency Department particularly, “Expanding Project ASSERT:  Providing Pathways to Resilience and Recovery.” Project Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services Education and Referral to Treatment (ASSERT) is designed for patients who have overdosed or are at-risk for overdosing. After screening, they are provided a brief negotiation interview intervention by specially trained Health Promotion Advocates and are referred to a specialized treatment facility or provided medication assistance treatment.

CEO Statement

Yale New Haven Hospital is committed to providing unparalleled value to the people we have the privilege of serving. This means focusing on the quality and safety of care we provide as well as the patient’s perception of her experience. It also requires that we be mindful of the fact that people are personally paying for more of their healthcare and we need to manage the costs of care carefully.

This year, Yale New Haven experienced strong patient volume, continued progress towards sustaining a culture of safety and quality and numerous clinical program breakthroughs and advancements. They would not have been possible without the engagement, expertise and innovation of our employees and medical staff, the leadership of our board and management team and the support of our friends, donors and members of our community.

Awareness of YNHH as a leading destination hospital increased during 2016 with the Hospital and Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital both ranked by U.S. News & World Report. We also continue to serve as a community hospital providing comprehensive, compassionate family-centered care during 1.2 million outpatient encounters and to more than 79,800 inpatients.

During 2016, we opened a 15-bed inpatient unit for bariatric and gastrointestinal surgery patients, opened the new Smilow Cancer Hospital Phase I Clinical Trials Unit and announced the formation of a new Center for Living Donors which will provide long-term follow-up care at no out-of-pocket costs to the living donors of a kidney or liver to a transplant recipient. The hospital was redesignated a Magnet Hospital, earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Chest Pain certification and was one of only 354 hospitals out of more than 5,600 in the United States to earn international recognition as a Baby-Friendly birth facility.


Board Chair Statement

It is a privilege to serve on the Board of Trustees of Yale New Haven Hospital and to continually evaluate current and future strategies to ensure the hospital’s ongoing success required by this ever-changing healthcare environment. 

Yale New Haven Hospital is focusing on ensuring a culture of patient safety and clinical quality, employee engagement, financial performance and leading destination clinical programs.

It is a unique and rewarding experience to work alongside the hospital leadership and the extremely gifted, talented and compassionate healthcare professionals who strive to provide excellent family-centered care to our patients every day.

YNHH has embarked on an important project to create a destination Center for Musculoskeletal Care (CMC). Guided by unparalleled teaching, research and commitment to patient and family-centered care, the CMC will emphasize collaborative treatment plans designed by care teams. The project, expected to cost $15 million for Phase 1, will be an investment to revitalize space at the Saint Raphael Campus that will house specially designed CMC operating rooms, patient floors and specialty clinics.


Under the leadership of nationally recognized orthopedic surgeon, Mary I. O'Connor, MD, the Center will help patients with a plethora of diseases and conditions ranging from arthritis to vasculitis. It will serve as a model of care for those with musculoskeletal related issues, including our aging population. The Center will give patients access to superior health care close to home; impact the local economy by creating more jobs and with healthcare professionals relocating here; help businesses by expediting the return of injured/sick employees to work; and, draw more patients, consumers and their families to the area.

Support is needed for construction, renovation, technology, equipment, clinical research, patient programs and services.

In 1993, Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH) was built as a hospital within a hospital. While the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) was built to cutting edge standards of the day, technology has progressed and equipment has become larger and more sophisticated enabling doctors, nurses and staff to care for preterm and critically ill infants born as early as 23 weeks of gestation. As a result of this success, our patient’s conditions are increasingly complex and the care provided has become more complicated.

The hospital delivered 6,020 babies in FY2015, of which 849 were admitted to the NICU. Preterm babies and critically ill infants admitted to the NICU are born with major developmental problems requiring special care procedures or surgical interventions.

The campaign to advance Neonatal Intensive Care at YNHCH focuses on the need to design and build our Labor and Delivery, Maternal Special Care and NICU as an environment that enables family-centered care, as a necessary element of care. This will improve short and long term outcomes for NICU babies with an environment that reduces stress and is conducive to healing, while increasing family participation in care.

CEO Comments

While 990's are due each year on February 15, it is our practice to extend the file date to August per decision of management.  Consequently, there will be a lag between when we complete our 990's and audited financial statements and when they can be posted to this site.
