A message to the WVU Medicine-WVU Hospitals Family
At WVU Medicine-WVU Hospitals, our faculty and staff embody the spirit of the season – the Mountaineer spirit. You go above and beyond, every day, to provide high quality care to our patients and their family members. Thank you!
Many of you will work through the holidays, lifting the spirits of hospitalized patients. You’ll bring smiles to the kids at WVU Medicine Children’s. You’ll provide fellowship to those alone for the holidays. And you’ll lend a shoulder when extra support is needed.
It’s your dedication and commitment that make WVU Medicine-WVU Hospitals a special place.
It has been an exciting year – one full of progress and promise. We are growing, serving more patients than ever before. And the quality of the care we are providing has never been better. We are achieving our mission of improving the health of West Virginians and all we serve – thanks to you.
We are also continuing to be a good community partner and giving back. Your contributions, along with a corporate gift from the hospital, to the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties exceeded $200,000 this year. That’s our largest donation ever – one that supports 27 local health and human services agencies. These agencies give our neighbors and co-workers a place to turn and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Your generosity didn’t stop there. A total of 117 kids were “adopted” this year through Care Management’s Holiday Assistance Program. Your support of this program will help make the holidays a little brighter for 71 WVU Medicine families.
These are just a few examples of how you make a difference in the lives of our patients, your co-workers and the communities we serve. And our communities give back to us. We couldn’t achieve our mission without our close to 300 volunteers, and the financial and other support we receive from our donors.
The spirit of the season lives year-round at WVU Medicine.
I would like to wish you and your family the happiest of holidays and a very Merry Christmas. May these days be filled with joy, peace and hope for the new year.
