The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) recently awarded 2010 Auxiliary Advocacy Recognition to Thompson Guild. This recognition is given to auxiliaries who commit significant time and effort to serving as an advocate for their facility and community.
Thompson Guild’s fundraising efforts support Thompson Health in numerous ways. A few of the Guild’s contributions in 2010 included a handicapped-accessible, air-conditioned bus for residents of the M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center and The Brighter Day; a high definition television for educational activities at F.F. Thompson Hospital; two VeinViewer ® Vision Imaging Systems, which are used to make blood draws and IV insertions more comfortable for patients; a $350,000 donation to upgrade the Urgent Care Center; an underwater aquatic treadmill for Rehabilitation Services; and a seven-year pledge to Project Excel, Thompson Health’s expansion/renovation project.
Thompson Guild’s gifts were made possible by events such as the Fall Fashion Show, Basket Raffle, Gigantic Garage Sale and others.
