Your Gifts in Action PORT 2017 IMPACT RE


U O Y K N A H T Thank you for being a Superhero and joining more than 1,100 employees who picked their passion, made a financial gift and changed lives in 2017! Because of your commitment, more than 96,000 employees, patients and community members will benefit from a new piece of equipment, staff training or education. Your donation to the Norman Regional Health Foundation assisted in our mission to enhance excellent health care by: • purchasing equipment for our health care system and providing training and continuing education for our healers • awarding scholarships for those pursuing health care-related degrees • supporting community health and wellness initiatives iGive is a four week campaign throughout February for Norman Regional employees with a simple challenge: find your passion and make a difference. There is no dollar goal, only a call to participate at any level. Your personal investment in our nonprofit health system helped advance our ability to care for patients. Through the Foundation’s 2017 grant process, approximately $167,000 was distributed for training, education, scholarships and equipment. Inside these pages is a listing of those grants awarded. Your contribution is making a difference today and for years to come. We are grateful for your generosity!
