The Orange City Area Health System Auxiliary voted in January to gift $60,000 to the health system. The funds will be utilized for the purchase of sofas for the assisted living area of Landsmeer Ridge Retirement Community, a new pickup with a blade for the maintenance department, and a dual injector for the hospital’s new CT scanner. In addition, the Auxiliary will continue to fund the Employee Educational Assistance Fund.
“Orange City Area Health System is so fortunate to have an amazing team of volunteers working together to support our health system and the patients and families we serve,” said Mary Plathe, Volunteer Services Manager. “It is unbelievable what we can do when we work together!”
Auxiliary funds raised come from Gift Garden proceeds, special sales events in the hospital lobby throughout the year, and the annual Auxiliary Fund Drive. According to CEO Marty Guthmiller, “Our Auxiliary continues to be invaluable as a partner in our healing environment. Their efforts once again provided significant dollars towards needed equipment and we cannot thank them enough for all the work they do.”
Orange City Area Health System is a comprehensive health system including four family practice medical clinics, a hospital, surgical services, physical therapy, home health and hospice, two nursing homes, and a senior living facility. More information can be found at ocHealthSystem.org.
