Howard & Sue Carver

When Illinois natives, Howard and Sue Carver were considering retirement in Summit County, they knew that the plans for the new hospital were well under way. They had been vacationing in Summit County for years and have had a home here since 1998. “It was important to us since we planned to spend eight to nine months of the year here that there would be a significant healthcare presence in the county,” Howard explained. Moving from Hartford, Connecticut after 35 years with Ernst & Young and residing all over the country in between, the Carvers were confident that their primary healthcare needs would be met by St. Anthony Summit Medical Center. The Carvers firmly believe that it’s important to support healthcare and they have been consistent donors to healthcare needs in all the towns and cities in which they have lived over the years. In Hartford, Howard served on the foundation board as the chair of major gifts for the 566 bed St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center (soon to be part of Ascension Health, a large Catholic health system). He also served for five years on the board of the Colorado Brain Injury Alliance which supports brain-injured patients and their families in the Denver community and throughout the state. The couple has a personal interest in helmet safety and brain injury prevention since their son Chad is disabled following a brain injury as a result of a diabetic coma. He is currently living in a group home in Denver and functioning well. Howard and Sue have been very generous donors to the ThinkFirst program and the Traumatic Brain Injury program at Summit Medical Center Health Foundation. Howard strongly advocates the use of helmets for any activity or sport that involves speed, including river rafting. When planning a raft trip during the weekend of his daughter’s visit in Summit County, Howard declined to book a trip for 25 people because at the time the rafting company did not use helmets on the section of the river he was considering. However that company does provide helmets now! In addition to son Chad, Howard and Sue have a daughter Cindy who is married to David. Chad’s son, Nicholas, has blessed the Carvers with a great-granddaughter Violet. Nicholas and his family live in St. Paul, Minnesota. Although the Carvers are healthy residents enjoying skiing, golf, platform tennis for Howard and tennis for Sue, they agree that first-class healthcare and a world-class hospital are very important to their quality of life in retirement. They are also both avid readers and travelers and enjoy spending several months a year in Hartford or wherever adventure calls. PAGE 5

2013 Associate Campaign Supports Hospital Programs Employees participating in the 2013 Associate Campaign “Soaring to New Heights” are providing nearly $32,000 in support to many programs at the foundation this year. In a time of increased need, employees at the hospital and mountain clinics continue to show their generosity to support hospital projects and programs. While participation in the program is open to all employees at any time, currently 70 associates have elected to support programs at the hospital either through a direct gift, a one-time payroll deduction, a continuous payroll deduction or a gift of Paid Time Off (PTO). Sixteen programs will benefit from employee gifts this year. Ten associates are giving at the “Hour Club” level, contributing a minimum gift equal to one-half hour of pay per pay period or a minimum of 13 hours of PTO over the course of the year. Seventeen donors are participating at the “Partners Circle” level in 2013, a gift of $1,000 or more annually. Contributions have been designated to support the following programs:

Our Mission

Raise and allocate philanthropic funds, primarily for the hospital’s programs and services that benefit the underserved, the elderly and the community. Our focus is on areas and issues that enhance the hospital’s mission but do not fall within the normal parameters of the hospital or its budget. The Summit Medical Center Health Foundation is the primary foundation for St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in Frisco, Colorado.

“I am so pleased with the response from our associates to the program this year. These are challenging times for everyone, with many demands to support a variety of charitable causes throughout the county. This is a tremendous boost for our foundation and further evidence that we are a family of employees caring for the families of our communities”, proudly remarked Paul Chodkowski, CEO of the hospital. We are grateful to everyone who participated in the “Soaring to New Heights” campaign. The Summit Medical Center Health Foundation extends its heartfelt thanks for this wonderful generosity and support. These gifts will make a tremendous difference in so many lives.

Howard & Sue Carver

When Illinois natives, Howard and Sue Carver were considering retirement in Summit County, they knew that the plans for the new hospital were well under way. They had been vacationing in Summit County for years and have had a home here since 1998. “It was important to us since we planned to spend eight to nine months of the year here that there would be a significant healthcare presence in the county,” Howard explained. Moving from Hartford, Connecticut after 35 years with Ernst & Young and residing all over the country in between, the Carvers were confident that their primary healthcare needs would be met by St. Anthony Summit Medical Center. The Carvers firmly believe that it’s important to support healthcare and they have been consistent donors to healthcare needs in all the towns and cities in which they have lived over the years. In Hartford, Howard served on the foundation board as the chair of major gifts for the 566 bed St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center (soon to be part of Ascension Health, a large Catholic health system). He also served for five years on the board of the Colorado Brain Injury Alliance which supports brain-injured patients and their families in the Denver community and throughout the state. The couple has a personal interest in helmet safety and brain injury prevention since their son Chad is disabled following a brain injury as a result of a diabetic coma. He is currently living in a group home in Denver and functioning well. Howard and Sue have been very generous donors to the ThinkFirst program and the Traumatic Brain Injury program at Summit Medical Center Health Foundation. Howard strongly advocates the use of helmets for any activity or sport that involves speed, including river rafting. When planning a raft trip during the weekend of his daughter’s visit in Summit County, Howard declined to book a trip for 25 people because at the time the rafting company did not use helmets on the section of the river he was considering. However that company does provide helmets now! In addition to son Chad, Howard and Sue have a daughter Cindy who is married to David. Chad’s son, Nicholas, has blessed the Carvers with a great-granddaughter Violet. Nicholas and his family live in St. Paul, Minnesota. Although the Carvers are healthy residents enjoying skiing, golf, platform tennis for Howard and tennis for Sue, they agree that first-class healthcare and a world-class hospital are very important to their quality of life in retirement. They are also both avid readers and travelers and enjoy spending several months a year in Hartford or wherever adventure calls. PAGE 5

2013 Associate Campaign Supports Hospital Programs Employees participating in the 2013 Associate Campaign “Soaring to New Heights” are providing nearly $32,000 in support to many programs at the foundation this year. In a time of increased need, employees at the hospital and mountain clinics continue to show their generosity to support hospital projects and programs. While participation in the program is open to all employees at any time, currently 70 associates have elected to support programs at the hospital either through a direct gift, a one-time payroll deduction, a continuous payroll deduction or a gift of Paid Time Off (PTO). Sixteen programs will benefit from employee gifts this year. Ten associates are giving at the “Hour Club” level, contributing a minimum gift equal to one-half hour of pay per pay period or a minimum of 13 hours of PTO over the course of the year. Seventeen donors are participating at the “Partners Circle” level in 2013, a gift of $1,000 or more annually. Contributions have been designated to support the following programs:

Our Mission

Raise and allocate philanthropic funds, primarily for the hospital’s programs and services that benefit the underserved, the elderly and the community. Our focus is on areas and issues that enhance the hospital’s mission but do not fall within the normal parameters of the hospital or its budget. The Summit Medical Center Health Foundation is the primary foundation for St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in Frisco, Colorado.

“I am so pleased with the response from our associates to the program this year. These are challenging times for everyone, with many demands to support a variety of charitable causes throughout the county. This is a tremendous boost for our foundation and further evidence that we are a family of employees caring for the families of our communities”, proudly remarked Paul Chodkowski, CEO of the hospital. We are grateful to everyone who participated in the “Soaring to New Heights” campaign. The Summit Medical Center Health Foundation extends its heartfelt thanks for this wonderful generosity and support. These gifts will make a tremendous difference in so many lives.
