Our Heroes Our Donors

Dear Donors, Thank you for taking time to read the West Holt Medical Services Foundation’s 2013 Annual Report, which highlights the Foundation’s work in providing support to West Holt Medical Services’ patients and their families. I’m pleased to announce that fiscal year 2013 was another success. We hope you find the information in the following pages a testament to our on-going commitment that embodies our values of Compassion, Integrity, Community Involvement, Growth and Quality. Through the generosity of hospital employees, individuals and businesses in Atkinson and across the country, the Foundation provided thousands of dollars to the Hospital through 488 gifts from 274 individuals and businesses. Our donors, our volunteers and our staff from both the Hospital and the Foundation work hand-in-hand to make our facility an extraordinary place of treatment and healing. We are proud of the programs and services the Hospital offers. Advancing and improving the care provided by West Holt Medical Services is possible only because of our heroes, our donors. Please accept our heart-felt thanks.
