Hospital Auxiliary makes major gift

Greensburg — For the second straight month, the Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) Board accepted a special gift for the upcoming building project, which will provide all private rooms for DCMH inpatients.   

Hospital Auxiliary President Susan Wilson, Gift Shop Volunteer Connie Polston, and Information Desk Volunteer Curly Dummich were present at the Hospital Board of Trustees meeting Thursday evening to present a $25,000 check from the Auxiliary to the hospital.

The $25,000 gift was pledged in $5,000 payments over five years and allows the Auxiliary to name a room in the new expansion.

Auxiliary President Susan Wilson said, "As volunteers, we have a unique perspective of the hospital and its importance to residents and the community. Therefore, the decision to adopt a room in the medical-surgical unit was an easy one. We're proud to be able support the project financially and appreciate the community support of our sales events and gift shop, which have allowed us to make the contribution."

The Hospital Auxiliary provides volunteers for the transport desk, same day surgery, the information desk and the DCMH gift shop.

The group raises funds directly from Gift shop operation and through regular event sales open to the public, including uniform, book, and accessory sales Ñ among others.

More information about the auxiliary and volunteer opportunities at DCMH is available at or by calling Volunteer Services Coordinator Vicki Rudolf at 663-1127.   

The opportunity to name rooms for the new medical-surgical unit was announced during the Hospital Foundation's annual meeting earlier this year; the Foundation made its own room naming commitment in March.

The proposed new unit will provide all private rooms on the third floor of a vertical expansion. Rooms may be named for families, organizations or businesses for a multi-year gift of $5,000 annually for five years, or for a lump sum of $25,000.

Those interested in learning more about room naming opportunities or the Hospital Foundation fundraising efforts, should call David Fry at 663-1220.
