The gift was announced at Wednesday’s annual Auxiliary brunch, where the hospital volunteers were recognized for their hours of service to the organization. Volunteers heard words of thanks from several WMH Foundation board members including Tom Eads, who serves as President of the board, hospital CEO Gary Jordan, Dr. Pamela Ralls and Matt Osterthun, who serves as the Foundation Development Officer and Volunteer Coordinator for Wright Memorial Hospital.

“As one of many volunteers that greet patients and visitors in the front lobby, I know there are many people that rely on our hospital’s maternity services and ultrasound exams”, says LaDonna Sparks, who serves as President of the Auxiliary Group. “Patients deserve the best of care and if they don’t get it, they won’t come back. We as a group felt that this technology will impact not only the patients, but the employees and doctors as well.”

The $300,000 campaign is currently underway and is aimed to advance the obstetrical and radiology services at Wright Memorial Hospital. The past three years the hospital has averaged more than 200 OB deliveries and 2000 ultrasound exams, both are anticipated to grow in 2014 and into the future. Currently nearly $60,000 has been raised towards the campaign thus far.

“The Auxiliary is to support and promote the hospital”, says Susanne Walden, who serves as the Secretary of the group. “The OB Centralized Monitoring System and Ultrasound Machine will keep Wright Memorial on the cutting edge of technology for our future patients for years to come.”

The WMH Auxiliary Group volunteered nearly 4,500 hours during the 2013 year, and is on pace to surpass that total in 2014. The hospital volunteers were recently recognized as the Grundy County RSVP Workstation of the Year. Daily duties include main lobby and gift shop operations and outpatient registration services.

“In many incidents, we as volunteers are the first faces’ the hospital’s patients and visitors see when they arrive”, says Arlene Garrison, who serves as the group’s Treasurer. “The volunteer’s role and the Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation’s role work hand-in-hand in making sure the hospital is as strong as possible, so we’re extremely happy about this gift to the campaign.”

Those interested in becoming a hospital volunteer or contribute to the “Equipped for the Future” Campaign, need to contact the Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation office at 660-358-5706.
