Long-time Foundation for Morristown Medical Center supporter, The Rippel Foundation, has provided a $50,000 gift to proactively help Morristown Medical Center in the fight against COVID-19.

The Fannie E. Rippel Foundation was established upon the death Julius S. (J.S.) Rippel in memory of his wife. The Foundation was founded in 1953 with a mission to invest in five distinct areas of health: caring for the elderly and for women, supporting hospitals, treating heart disease, and treating cancer. In directing funds, the Board of Trustees was granted broad authority to adopt approaches it deemed appropriate for changing times.
