PVCH Foundation Hosts MRI Ribbon Cutting Reception

LARNED, Kan. (December 3, 2014) Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Foundation is hosting a Ribbon Cutting & Reception to commemorate the new in-house MRI at Pawnee Valley Community Hospital on Tuesday, December 9, at 10 a.m. in the St. Joseph Conference Room at PVCH.

During this celebration, PVCH will be showing a power point of the MRI room’s construction and installation while also talking about how the new MRI works and will impact healthcare in Pawnee County.

Although the MRI is now installed at PVCH, the PVCH Foundation Trustees want to remind the community that at this point the MRI has not been fully funded and they are still requesting donations. The Matching Gift Challenge is taking place now through December 31, and will triple all donations made to the MRI Fund thanks to the generosity of generous supporters who have pledged to match funds up to $50,000. Along with being able to triple your donation’s impact, all donations are tax deductible.

The extra matching funds come from the Glenn and Elaine Mull Family Fund at the Golden Belt Community Foundation. Glenn served as a Trustee on the Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Foundation and felt strongly that the community needed this medical service and diagnostic tool in the immediate area. “He was often frustrated by the economics on the outflow of funds from the community to other medical groups simply because Larned lacked this equipment,” explained Jennifer Ladwig, daughter of Glenn and Elaine Mull. “Having an in-house MRI is something that Glenn really wanted to have happen for the community.”
“The Matching Gift Challenge is an exciting time because our supporters can give to the MRI Fund and help further the quality healthcare we can provide the citizens of our area,” shared Linda Henderson, PVCH Foundation Director.  “It’s a great chance to see $50 do $150 worth of good, or convert $250 into a $750 impact. I know that having in-house MRI services was something Glenn was very passionate about for our hospital and the communities that we serve.”

“The generosity of our supporters during the Matching Gift Challenge enables the Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Foundation to leverage gifts towards fully funding the new in-house MRI,” said Suzan Haynes, the organization’s President.  “By working together, we can make a huge impact on healthcare for the communities that we serve, and I want to thank everyone whose gifts and efforts help further our mission.”
To have your gift matched, simply make a donation between now and December 31, 2015, by calling 620-285-8840 or mailing your gift to Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Foundation, c/o MRI Fund, 923 Carroll Avenue, Larned KS 67550.
