Thus far, the Foundation has generated over $6 million in new gift income for the three projects.  “Self Regional Healthcare is our hospital.  We know how important it is to have a premier healthcare provider right here in our community for our employees and our families.  That’s why our company has made this significant gift” said John Davidson, Greenwood Site Director for Lonza.

In accepting this generous pledge, Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Chairman Courtney Furman said “We are so very grateful to Lonza for their leadership gift to our campaign.  We believe and hope that their leadership will encourage other businesses in our community to join this campaign.”  For more information about the Our Vision Is 2020 Campaign, please contact the Foundation Office at 864-725-4256 or visit www.selfregionalfoundation.org.
