Capital Campaign ends year at 79% of $4 million goal

by -

Greene County Medical Center’s $4 million “Investing in Tomorrow’s Care” capital campaign ended 2014 at 79% of its goal. This came in large part to some end-of-year gifts from area and supporting businesses that totaled $95,000.

A gift of $50,000 was pledged by UnityPoint Health – Des Moines, which is part of the UnityPoint Health system Greene County Medical Center is affiliated with.

21st Century Rehab, Nevada, IA, is the medical center’s partner for rehabilitation services and has pledged $20,000 to the campaign. Scranton’s MacDonald Insurance Agency made a pledge of $15,000.

Hy-Vee Food Store, Jefferson, and Louis Dreyfus Commodities, Grand Junction, both made $5,000 donations to the campaign.

Foundation Director Hollie Roberts stated, “It is rewarding to see area businesses and organizations participate in the success of this campaign. Having a medical center in Greene County is important to all of us.”

Roberts noted that “The campaign should reach 85% of its goal by mid-summer and then when the expansion portion of the project is completed in late June of this year, we’ll be ready to ask the public to help us reach 100%.”
