2020 Annual Report:
Together we made an impact

We are excited to share with you the great work the Foundation has been able to do during a year that looked different than expected. When the coronavirus hit Michigan in March, the Foundation staff quickly began accepting donations of PPE and meals to support our amazing healthcare staff.


With the help of this generous community, we were also able to raise over sixty-two thousand dollars to support our frontline staff here through the purchase of specialized PPE and equipment to aid in the battle against the virus.


While our events looked different this year, our donors pivoted with us to enjoy a virtual cocktail party, warmer socially-distant golf outing, to-go food with a streaming concert, and stories shared from our patients during the first-ever Day of Giving. We appreciate this community sticking with the Foundation this year and allowing us to continue to support the hospital and Campaign for Care.


With appreciation,

Lynn Griffor

Foundation Vice President

Funded Grants

Bronchoscopy Tower

This tower allows medical personnel to go to a patient’s bedside to conduct bronchoscopies, instead of a patient having to be brought to a stationary piece of equipment helping with patient comfort.

Panda Infant Care Center

This state-of-the-art piece of equipment that will enhance caregivers’ abilities to administer coordinated and comprehensive treatment to newborns that need to be resuscitated and allow staff to conduct post-labor examinations of newborns not in distress. 

C-Arm OEC X-Ray Machine

The C-Arm will benefit orthopedic trauma patients by helping surgeons be more expedient when it comes to scheduling and performing surgeries. It also will improve the resolution of x-rays, which will allow for quicker image identification while exposing patients to less radiation.

COOLIEF Cooled RF Advanced-R Generator

This machine enables doctors to treat patients without the use of opioids and can provide pain relief for up to a year by destroying the sensory nerves that cause chronic pain.

CIVCO Prone Belly Board

The device allows patients to lay on their stomachs while radiation oncologists focus their treatment on tumor sites while keeping healthy tissue out of way of the radiation beam. That lowers the risk of unintended side effects and increases the chances of successful outcomes and improved quality of life for the patients.

PAPR Hoods

The Foundation was able to use COVID funding to purchase papr hoods for our medical staff as an added layer of protection while caring for COVID-19 patients.
