With the arrival of a vaccine, we remain optimistic that in time, we will move past the dark days of this pandemic. As our region’s not-for-profit healthcare provider, we continue to be prepared to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as cases continue to rise, needs evolve daily that place significant new demands on our health system and valued workforce. This includes adding additional intensive care unit (ICU) beds, developing more COVID-19 units to isolate and treat patients, increasing staffing, new policies and procedures, increased use of medical equipment and supplies, and of course, the support we provide those working the front lines.
We must prepare for what is ahead.
Now is the time for our community to come together—more so than we have already—to ensure our local health system is prepared to provide world-class care that has become our hallmark. No matter the increase in cases, with your help, we will stand ready to treat our loved ones, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and members of our community.
The leadership and support from our community to Memorial Health System. We are pleased to share the Peoples Bank community matching gift challenge has been met. Peoples Bank matched the first $100,000 raised by community members, dollar-for-dollar.
While the matching donation will make a huge impact, we have still not met our goal. The Memorial Health Foundation seeks to rease $1 million by February 14th for use in the ongoing struggle against COVID-19. Please consider a gift that benefits every one of us in our community. Make your gift today online, by mail with a check made payable to Memorial Health Foundation (PO Box 97, Marietta, Ohio 45750) or contact, Jarrett Stull, Executive Director of the Memorial Health Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or (740) 374-4914 to discuss other giving options.
Our thanks and appreciation are extended to every benefactor who has stepped forward to support Memorial Health System during the pandemic. We know this community will again come together at the time we need to most.
