The newly formed Carroll County Memorial Hospital Foundation inaugural event was a success.
Awards are being presented organizations and/or their employees that raised $1,000 or more for the HERO fund-Hospital Employee Relief Operation. This fund was set-up by the Missouri Hospital Association in response to catastrophic natural disasters in the spring 2011. When disaster strikes, hospital employees work 24/7 to care for patients. Yet in many cases, their families and homes also have been affected. This was a way to give back to those who give us so much. Funds are given to help hospital employees who are full- or part-time Missouri hospital employees significantly affected by this year’s disasters and who live in one of the FEMA-designated counties. Funds may be used to provide needed assistance to hospital employees who because of the storms:
Carroll County Memorial Hospital and the Employees of Carroll County Memorial Hospital raised a total of $1,100 in June, 2011. “Thanks to a number of special organizations such as yours, the HERO fund has raised $458,518 in a very short period of time. This award is a token of our appreciation for the contribution your organization made to the HERO fund. We hope you will display it as a reminder of your generous spirit when other needed your help” Nick Nichols of Missouri Hospital Association.
Funds in the amount of $455,633 have been distributed to 730 hospital employees that were affected by one of the natural disasters that affected Missouri in 2011. Contributions continue to come in and MHA will distribute all funds by the end of the year. Several of the hospital chief executives whose employees received a check shared the significant positive impact this financial contribution has made on their employees.
