More than $300,000 raised to enhance local surgery services
Calif. – Thanks to generous
community support, the Sutter Amador Hospital Foundation raised more than
$168,000 toward the 2013 Matching Grant exceeding their goal of $150,000.
Community members’ investments were doubled thanks to Sutter Health’s matching
grant program – bringing the grand total to $318,000. This valuable funding
will improve access and strengthen surgical care in AmadorCounty
with proceeds designated for orthopedic and general surgical equipment.
“Not everyone has the opportunity to give direct patient
care, but anyone who supports SutterAmadorHospital
has a hand in shaping the quality care experience for our patients and
families,” said Melody Montgomery, MBA, R.N., director of surgery at SutterAmadorHospital. “We are forever
grateful to all those who partner with us on behalf of patients.”
All gifts made to SutterAmadorHospital,
regardless of their size, have a significant impact. Community members
requiring orthopedic or general surgical care can expect the latest innovations
in care, including less invasive treatments, thanks to these gifts.
Many donors gave gifts in excess of $5,000, including Bill
and Nikki Allen, Amador Community Foundation, American Legion Ambulance, David
and Gretchen Carlson, Richard and Laurie Forster, Jackson Lions Club, Anne and
Bruce Platt, Rotary Club of Jackson, Pat and Carl Simonsen and the Spinty
Foundation. These contributions were essential to meet the foundation’s
“Our tight-knit community is so supportive and giving in nature.
It is in our roots,” said David Carlson, board chair. “By partnering together,
we know that we can accomplish great things. We rallied together for this cause
because we understand how valuable it can be toward enhancing the quality of
care for us locally.”
The Sutter Amador Hospital Foundation is now focusing on its
2014 Matching Grant Program, which is dedicated to raising funds for enhancing
the early detection of breast cancer through the addition of leading edge
mammography equipment. To learn more about this critical initiative, please
