Partners take top MHA auxiliary honor
At the Missouri Hospital Association (MHA) annual conference held earlier this month at Lake of the Ozarks the Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital Partners was honored for a second year in a row, for their exceptional efforts as an auxiliary representing a hospital with up to 30 licensed beds.
The MHA cited the Partners 14,000+ hours of volunteer service the past year; the Partners fundraising activities, which allowed nearly $50,000 in contributions to priority projects, including $42,000 for hospital equipment; and $5,000 in scholarships for local students.
Mickey Koetting, Partners President, accepted the award on behalf of the Partners.
“This is probably the one place that I know everyone knows it takes more than a few people to do the jobs we do, and we are a very active auxiliary.” said Koetting. “I want to thank Tom Keim, our CEO, Rita Brumfield, our liaison, members of the hospital board and a whole cadre of our volunteers, who came here today to be a part of this award. This is our 2nd year and maybe we’ll see you again next year!”
