West Plains Sunrise Rotary Club issues Fundraising Challenge for OMC Foundation
WEST PLAINS, Mo – The West Plains Sunrise Rotary Club made a $5,000
contribution to the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation “Building
the Future” Campaign and would like to issue a challenge to all
other civic organizations in the area. The Rotarians recognize the importance
of a hospital in the community and hope that others will see the benefits as well.
"The West Plains Sunrise Rotary Club is pleased to be in a position
to make this donation to what is inarguably a transformative project for
both OMC and our region. Rotary is about service and support of our local
communities and is made up of committed members who want to find ways
to make an impact. This project is one way we can contribute to what is
going to be a tremendous positive impact. Rotary focuses internationally
on peace, disease reduction and prevention, clean water, saving mothers
and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. The OMC
expansion project is going to positively affect our region in several
of those focus areas,” says Josh Drummond, Sunrise Rotary President.
He went on to say, “We would like to challenge all other civic organizations
in our area to make a contribution as well!”
The “Building the Future” Campaign was created to assist OMC
in bringing many of their doctors under one roof, expand the hospital
to connect to the Shaw Building, 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 hospital in providing excellent healthcare
to the communities it serves. For more information or to make a gift to
the OMC Foundation, please call 417-853-5200.
