MED-Surg MAKES IT HAPPEN!!!

Terry's House Blog Editor: January 11, 20141 Comments

In early November last year, we kicked off a Medical Surgical Services (MED Surg) Holiday Employee Giving Campaign in an effort aimed at directly supporting the ongoing operations of Terry’s House!

The challenge was accepted and over the past several weeks our MED Surg units have work together with the help of their dedicated administrative support team, to reach a goal set at $20,000.00 for the holiday season! Pretty impressive, isn't it?

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of Terry’s House being open to help the families of our most ill and injured patients at Community Regional... What better way to celebrate than to end this incredible campaign on such a special day?

I am THRILLED to report that not only did the MED Surg units reach their $20,000.00 goal... They simply KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!!! 

Drum roll please.... The final total for the 2013/14 Medical Surgical Services (MED Surg) Holiday Employee Giving Campaign is....

$28,197

WOW!!! I am blown away and it is quite amazing to wrap-up this campaign and see the impact made by these dedicated and giving employees! Not only do they care tirelessly for our patients across the street but, now they've also shown that they are willing to go above and beyond in caring about Terry's House and for our families!

The dollars raised during this campaign will provide a home-away-from-home for the equivalent of 940 nights of lodging for our families!!! Now, THAT is a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

THANK YOU MED-Surg employees... From the bottom of our hearts! The impact you've made is nothing short of INCREDIBLE! I hope you all are so very proud of all you've accomplished together!

We can't wait to celebrate this success with you!!!

With many thanks,

Christa Short
