Letter from Gary: October Newsletter


Unbelievably, we’ve reached the tail end of 2019. As always, we’re all wondering where the summer months have gone – but what a year it has been! As we work toward wrapping up another successful year (our 105th successful year, to be exact!), we want to share with you a few pieces of exciting Navigant Credit Union news.

First, please join me in welcoming the members of Kent Hospital Federal Credit Union to the Navigant family, as – a few weeks ago – we announced that our two institutions agreed to merge. Kent Hospital Federal Credit Union services the employees, medical staff, volunteers, retirees and immediate family members of all Care New England Health Care Facilities.

The merger will allow Kent Hospital Federal Credit Union’s members to have access to Navigant Credit Union’s full line of financial services. In the coming months, Kent Hospital Federal Credit Union’s physical branch, located in Kent Hospital itself, will be re-branded as Navigant Credit Union’s 19th branch location throughout Rhode Island. If you’re a member of Kent Hospital Federal Credit Union and have any questions about your transition, please do not hesitate to stop by any one of our branch locations – or, just give us a call. We’re here to help.

In other branch news, we are also thrilled to officially “re-open” our branch in Wakefield, located at 172 Main Street. We invested a significant amount of time and resources to provide our members down in South County with a brand-new, freshly designed location to meet their banking needs. We are incredibly proud of the result – and, from Oct. 7 – 12, we’re celebrating by giving away a different exciting prize every day. You could win a kayak, a bike, an Amazon Echo Show or a brand-new TV. The grand prize: Visa, Marriott and Southwest Airlines gift cards valued at a total of $1,500. Swing by the branch to enter to win.

As always, thank you for your continued trust in Navigant Credit Union. We look forward to finishing 2019 strong.
