The Fitzpatrick Family: Bethany's Original Benefactors

The Fitzpatrick Society is named for Bethany’s original benefactors, Thomas B. and Sara G. Fitzpatrick, who deeded their beautiful Framingham estate to the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1916 and donated funds to build a home for the Sisters to enjoy rest and relaxation. More than 100 years later the extended Fitzpatrick family continues the legacy with their generosity to Bethany Health Care Center.

One Small Act Will Make a Real Difference Every Day

When you join Bethany’s Fitzpatrick Society, you will make a tremendous difference every day in lives of the elderly residents who call Bethany Health Care Center home. Your continued generosity will allow us to provide the highest quality healthcare and to care for these women like the family that they are.

The Fitzpatrick Society

“My great-grandparents would be delighted by the care the Sisters receive at Bethany, and they would be humbled to know that their legacy is being celebrated in a way that contributes to the ongoing success of the organization. Because I have spent a number of years working at Bethany, I am confident that they would be so happy to see what was done with the property. And they would love that my mother – their own granddaughter – was able to reap the rewards as a resident. The family is proud to honor Thomas and Sara by continuing to support the residents and the important work of Bethany Health Care Center.”
