The 2010 West Valley Hospital Foundation employee campaign wrapped up
June 30, and the final numbers are in. Hospital employees contributed $16,631, exceeding the campaign goal of $16,000.
This is the sixth year the Foundation has held an employee campaign, and each year hospital employees have generously contributed to Foundation funds including Connections Van; building & equipment; scholarships & professional development and where the need is greatest to name several.
"The support among our dedicated staff for the work and mission of West Valley Hospital is an inspiration,” said Lane Shetterly, Foundation Board Chair. “When employees give of their own money, it says the hospital is more than just a place to work. It says this is a family that cares about the people and the families they serve."

In the past, the West Valley Hospital Foundation has funded surgical equipment, patient assistance for mammograms, video conferencing, the Connections Van, which provides transportation to and from the hospital, and scholarships for students or employees pursuing healthcare careers.
The West Valley Hospital Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors which includes Chair Lane Shetterly; Vice Chair Carrie Casebeer; Secretary/Treasurer Phil Walker; and directors Sam Collins, Charles Essex, M.D., Jim Fairchild, Donna Graham, Becky Jacroux, Sue Lamb, Bruce Lattin, Amy Lowery, Ben Magill, Jennifer Moran, and Mitch Ratzlaff.
