West Plains Savings & Loan donates to OMC Foundation Capital Campaign
WEST PLAINS, Mo – West Plains Savings & Loan made a charitable
contribution to the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation’s “Building
the Future” Campaign to help support the construction of the new
“West Plains Savings & Loan has existed in the West Plains community
since 1919 with a local board who are very interested in developing the
community – not only economically but also through schools and healthcare,”
said Pam Woodward, Manager and Board Member, West Plains Savings &
Loan. “Our board members and clients are most pleased to help the
West Plains’ economy, as well as healthcare in our region, knowing
OMC puts about $77 million back into the community annually.”
Without the participation of community members, like West Plains Savings
& Loan, this project would be inconceivable. “On behalf of the
OMC Foundation board, we thank West Plains Savings & Loan for their
continued support of rural healthcare,” said Carol Silvey, Vice
President for Advancement, OMC Foundation. “We take pride in having
support from other institutions that, like OMC, have a local board and
their roots deeply planted in our area.”
The “Building the Future” Campaign was created to assist OMC
in bringing many of their providers under one roof, expand the footprint
of the main campus by 100,000 square feet, create a first-ever state-of-the-art
Women’s Center in the region, and provide overall more convenient,
compassionate care to all it serves.
The Ozarks Medical Center Foundation, established in 1998 as a not-for-profit
501(c)(3) with a local board of directors, serves as a liaison between
the donor and OMC to assist the healthcare system in providing excellent
care to the communities it serves. For more information or to make a gift
