With a population of 255,000 in Greenwood and the Lakelands region, it’s imperative for Self Regional Healthcare to keep pace with the healthcare needs of our community. One of the ways Self Regional Healthcare is doing just that is through charitable gifts from caring indiiduals, businesses and foundations in our area. The simple fact is this: Self Regional Healthcare would not be the premier healthcare provider that it is today without philanthropic support.
At the heart of our Foundation is a corp of volunteers who serve on five committees. Each of these committees plays an integral role in raising gift income for renovations, expansions, service line enhancements and the purchase of new and replacement medical technologies. These volunteers share their time, their talents, and some of their treasures to improve healthcare in our community.
These caring people provide the energy to launch the most aggressive fundraising campaign in the history of the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation: Our Vision is 2020. This campaign will provide much needed resources to fund renovations to Self Regional Healthcare’s Childbirth Center, Ambulatory Care Center, and Emergency Department.
In April, 1944, the Greenwood Hospital was severely damaged by a tornado. The very next day, James C. Self announced that he would build a new hospital for our community. Self Memorial was built to be one of the most advanced hospitals in the country and was given as a gift to provide the best healthcare for Greenwood and surrounding communities. Philanthropic support has always been and always will be critical to continuing healthcare excellence.
As we launch Our Vision is 2020 campaign, we will build on the culture of philanthrophy that has sustained healthcare in this community for more than 66 years. We invite you to join us as these exciting products move forward to meet the healthcare needs of our friends, families, co-workers and neighbors.
