Local businesses recognized for generosity
June 27, 2012
The Madison County Hospital Foundation recognized more than 80 local business and civic organizations at their Annual Business Partners Breakfast on June 27 at the hospital.
Corporate Gifts Chair, Gary Feliks of O’Connor’s Office Products started the morning by thanking the businesses for their continued support of MCH. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to recognize all of you. Your support helps improve the quality of life here in Madison County.”
Foundation President Mike Quilter made a special thanks to the Business Partners and recognized the work of the other Foundation committees including special gifts, annual gifts, and hospital employee giving.
"From business leaders to community members and hospital employees, every donation made stays here in Madison County and help us provide the best possible care," said Quilter.
Fred Kolb, CEO, spoke about the progress of the Foundation's new campaign, Caring for Today and Tomorrow. The $2 million campaign will support information technology initiatives, including the addition of electronic health records (EHRs); add new equipment to radiology, surgery, and laboratory; and expand endowment funds that assist uninsured patients.
One new technology initiative at MCH is telestroke. Jennifer Piccione, Chief Nursing and Clinical Services Officer, updated the group on MCH's new partnership with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center to bring stroke experts to Madison County via telemedicine equipment. The program will begin at the end of July.
During the program, Chairman Gary Feliks welcomed new member Schneider Downs & Company, Inc. to the Foundation Business Partners.
Also recognized were the 11 current business partners who made new gifts during the past year: byersauto.com, Fraternal Order of Eagles #950, Iota Beta Chapter of Phi Beta Psi Sorority, KeyBank Foundation, the Columbus Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, MCH Auxiliary, MCH H.E.A.R.T.S. Employee Giving, Plain City Lions Club, Ruth Lyons Fund, Stanley Electric U.S. Company, and Zangmeister Center.
Gary Feliks concluded the recognition event by saying, “Once again, I want to thank each of you for your generosity. Your donations support not only the hospital, but the Madison County community.”
