An anonymous local donor has pledged $100,000 to the Harlan County Health System Foundation’s campaign, Quality Care… Building on Excellence. So far this is the largest gift that has been made to this campaign. Individuals that contribute to the campaign are making an investment that will allow the health system to bring enhanced quality treatment and efficiency to the patients and to entice new providers to join the practice and the community.
HCHS CEO Manuela Wolf commented: “This is great news for Harlan County Health System. I would like to thank this incredibly generous donor and would ask our community members to follow the example of this very committed supporter of health care in our community and contribute to this great cause. This will allow us to continue to deliver high quality healthcare close to home for many more years to come.” Foundation Board Chair Becky McKenzie stated: ”We are lucky to have community members that are willing to donate in order to help provide better access to healthcare right here in our own community”.
This capital fundraising campaign is designed to generate charitable support to offset the costs of replacing the current Alma clinic, which has served Alma and the surrounding communities for the last 45 years. So far the campaign has raised $406,441 in donations and commitments by community members, employees, area businesses and organizations. Thank you to the many people who have already donated during this first-ever fundraising effort. To make a donation, please call the foundation at (308) 928-2151 or contact them online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
