Janet RiceDuring her lifetime Janet Rice was devoted to Hartford Hospital. For nearly 20 years, she was a volunteer at the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center, serving at the reception desk. In gratitude for the care her husband, Ned, received from Andrew Salner, MD, and the cancer institute team, Janet established two endowed funds at the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute at Hartford Hospital. 

Janet and Ned arranged for their respective beneficiary interests in a UTC Savings Plan to be reassigned to Hartford Hospital, and upon their deaths, the resulting distributions to their endowed funds totaled nearly 5 times the amount of their total lifetime giving.
