For 50 years, GRMC has provided the healthcare services to help our patients get through all of life’s little ups and downs. Patients have always been our first priority at GRMC. Everything we do is centered on providing you with excellent healthcare services every day.
GRMC’s Annual Fund Drive is a vital part of our history. Gifts to the annual fund allow medical staff to purchase new, cutting-edge medical and wellness equipment and continue to offer the most advanced healthcare services and programs possible. Last year, gifts to the Annual Fund Drive allowed GRMC to purchase a new life-saving mechanical ventilator – among many other items. Donations to the AFD do more than just purchase medical equipment; those funds also go toward providing basic healthcare services.
When the Community Care Clinic opened in 2005, it was in response to help people lacking health insurance and without a medical home who sought healthcare in the emergency department for non-emergent health needs. These patients needed medical attention and had no place else to go. Your donations have allowed the clinic to continue serving an average of 190 area residents each year that might otherwise have to go without care.
Health services like Grinnell Regional Hospice, Grinnell Regional Home Care, and Grinnell Regional Public Health are also funded in part by contributions to the AFD. Donations similarly offset the costs of programs like the Babies Room, the Loan Closet, the Senior Education Program, and the Bike Helmets Program for third graders, which allow us to continue to raise the bar in quality and safety at GRMC.
Every gift, no matter the size, helps GRMC be there for those we serve. A donation the Annual Fund Drive is an investment in local healthcare projects, both big and small, for years to come.
