Medical Center Receives Generous Support From Me-Wuk Tribe


Sonora Regional Medical Center’s capital campaign for its new Cancer Center received a huge show of support recently from the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians. The Tuolumne Me-Wuk Tribal Council donated $50,000 and the Black Oak Casino Resort donated another $50,000 for a total gift of $100,000.

Kevin Day, Chair of the Tribal Council and Ron Patel, General Manager of the Black Oak Casino Resort presented the gift to hospital CEO and President Andrew Jahn and Gail Witzlsteiner, Executive Director of the Medical Center’s Foundation. 

“We are incredibly grateful for the support that the Tribe is demonstrating with this very generous gift,” stated Jahn.

The Capital Campaign for the new Cancer Center, to be located on the corner of Greenley Road and Mono Way, kicked-off one year ago and has raised $1.9 million to date.
