Supporting Rural Healthcare Close to Home
Panhandle Gives Campaign 2022
November 21 – November 29, 2022
With the 2022 Panhandle Gives campaign approaching, we are excited to continue our mission to invest in the people, equipment, and services that enable excellent healthcare for our counties. We ask that you consider supporting our efforts with a financial contribution during the 2022 Panhandle Gives Campaign. This year, the Foundation is raising funds for:
1) Infant Panda Warmer, $26,000 – For newborns who need a little extra care, these warmers allow families to stay near their newborn, while the integrated technology features allow attending nurses and doctors to better monitor the newborn during this critical time.
2) Healthcare Scholarships , $30,000 – Investing in our health workforce is critical for achieving our mission to provide excellent healthcare services locally.
3) New Nursing Home , Naming Opportunities Available – No one wants to move a loved one into the nursing home, but when it is needed, we are certainly glad it is right here in town! To be located just south of Frank Phillips College, with a view of Rita Blanca Lake, the 90 patient facility will serve the community for years to come.
