Evangelical Announces Campaign Geared Toward Enhancing the Patient Experience

September 18, 2018


Evangelical Community Hospital announces Enhancing the Evangelical Experience, its capital campaign geared toward caring for the community. The campaign, which officially kicked off publicly at the recent groundbreaking of the new Patient Room Improvement, Modernization, and Enhancement (PRIME) project, has been silently raising funds for the last year.

“We’re proud to say that $3 million has already been raised toward our $18 million goal,” said Donna Schuck, Associate Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Evangelical. “This early start assures us that the community is behind the PRIME project and the many different outreach efforts we’ve implemented the last few years. It’s clear they want to do what they can to make sure Evangelical can answer the healthcare needs of the future.”

Leading the campaign are co-chairs Martha Barrick and Todd Stefan, MD. 

“We are fortunate that many of our friends and neighbors have joined us in our quest to reach our fundraising goal,” said Martha Barrick, Owner/Broker of Coldwell Banker Penn One Real Estate. “We have a wonderful team of committee chairs who will be helping to reach out very much in the same way that the Hospital’s founders did when the original Hospital was built in the 1950s.”

Chairs of specialty committees include Roger Haddon – Signature Gifts, Jeff Kapsar – Business Gifts, Grace Mahon – Planned Gifts, Ryan McNally – Employee Giving, Timm Moyer – Annual Gifts, and Norman Rich – Special Gifts. 

The Enhancing the Evangelical Experience campaign will provide funding for Evangelical’s numerous community care programs that have been developed to address critical needs of the community. It will also support the PRIME project, which when completed in 2021, will make it possible for every inpatient room to be a private room with its own bathroom. 

“The construction has begun,” said Schuck. “As the Hospital transforms, we’re excited to share with others the opportunity to be part of the future of Evangelical. All gifts large and small allow the Hospital to focus on the community’s healthcare needs and compels us to develop and sustain programs that are essential to the well-being of the people who live here.”

PRIME will allow the Hospital to nurture an inpatient experience that will feel more like home, provide expanded services, allow for an improved space for family and visitors including spending more time with loved ones, increased safety and efficiency of care, and a strengthened ability to recruit and retain the best possible caregivers.

Not only supporting this newest and largest construction project in the Hospital’s history, funds raised by the Enhancing the Evangelical Experience campaign will also support existing programs including Community Health and Wellness, charity care, Hospice, Mobile Health, Pre-Hospital Services, The Family Place, and the Center for Breast Health.
