Hannibal Regional receives $118K donation
Would more than $100,000 make your holiday season brighter?
That's the gift one non-profit gave to the Hannibal Regional Healthcare system Monday morning.
The Auxiliary gave more than $118,000 to Hannibal Regional Healthcare System.
That's the largest amount the Auxiliary has given.
The funds will go towards a new linear accelerator in the James E Cary Cancer Center.
That machine delivers radiation to cancer patients who need their tumor or cancer treated.
Hannibal Regional Auxiliary President Loretta Bringer says the organization is proud to make this investment in community health.
"It's so needed in this community, the whole goal of the healthcare system is to serve people in our Tri-State area and to help them with their help needs so we want to be a part of that," said Bringer.
It took the past year to make this incredible donation possible.
Hannibal Regional President and CEO Todd Ahrens says this donation is important for the healthcare system.
"We couldn't do a lot of the things we are able to do as a healthcare system if it weren't for these 260 or so men and women that donate their time to the organization," Ahrens said.
Other projects funded by the Auxiliary include scholarships for the Hannibal Regional team members, memorials, discharge patient flowers, and much more.
Along with money, the Auxiliray donated time!
The total number of volunteers hours given by the Auxiliary came in at 24,000 hours.
