Employee Donor Wall Unveiled at Adventist Medical Center - Hanford

Philanthropy HANFORD/SELMA – Seven hundred ninety-four network employees are recognized for donating $1.2 million to Adventist Medical Center - Hanford. The names of the network employees were mounted on a wall spanning 32 feet across and over four feet high along a hallway outside the new hospital cafeteria.
    The wall symbolizes the contributions and donations these employees have made to the new hospital through one-time gifts or pledges lasting up to five years to the Kings Regional Health Foundation’s Our Community, Your New Hospital Capital Campaign.
    All employees who donated or pledged by July 2010 will find their name on the wall no matter the size of the gift. The wall, which is made of 1,070 pounds of corian base and acrylic name plates, will remain there as long as the building is in operation. It took construction crews almost five hours to install the wall on Jan. 19. 
    The employee contribution represents over a third of the $3.9 million that the Capital Campaign has raised so far, which is approximately $1,228,305 million in employee donations.  
    “This wall reflects the pride our employees feel for our organization and community,” said Richard L. Rawson, president and CEO of Adventist Health / Central Valley Network. “This contribution represents one of the many ways we have made great strides as a team toward our vision to be the best place to receive care, practice medicine and work.”
