SMH Foundation Celebrates Two Decades in Employee Partner Contributions


On Wednesday, December 14, 2023, Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation hosted their annual holiday breakfast to honor and celebrate Employee Partners for their contributions to the hospital’s Foundation. During the event, Partners vote to fund a strategic project in the hospital’s area of greatest need, with the monies accumulated over the past year. In 2023, 478 employee partners participated in this unique philanthropic program and donated $47,806 through biweekly payroll deductions.

This year at the Annual Partner Celebration, Employee Partners voted to support the hospital’s Behavioral Health Campaign. Healthcare for our community continues to grow and diversify. To meet these critical needs, Sheridan Memorial Hospital is developing a Crisis Stabilization Unit to create a separate physical environment to better address the behavioral and mental health needs of patients in crisis.

The idea for Employee Partner giving program began with a few faithful employees in 2004. It has steadily increased year over year, with new employees joining the generous and passionate hospital team. Over the past 20 years, Employee Partners have contributed over half a million dollars toward patient care improvement projects at your community hospital. Their efforts and generosity have opened doors and provided opportunities that will forever shape the trajectory of our organization.

“We are so grateful for our employees each and every day,” expresses Chief Development Officer Cody Sinclair. “The Employee Partner Program is just another example of how our employees contribute to our culture of kindness and care deeply for our patients. The Foundation would not be as successful without our employees’ unwavering commitment to care for our community. We are fortunate to have such a supportive team at the hospital. They create an environment that is not only medically advanced but also filled with warmth and genuine compassion. Every day they are focused on improving the care and experience of every patient.”
