your GeneroSity

Makes Us Great

St. Luke’s Hospital is one of only two hospitals in the state named one of the nation’s Top 100 Hospitals by Thomson Reuters, the nation’s leading source of healthcare information. St. Luke’s is the only Cedar Rapids hospital earning this designation and in the state of Iowa, shares the honor only with Mason City’s Mercy Medical Center – North Iowa. The award recognizes hospitals that have achieved excellence in quality of care, operational efficiency, financial performance and growth. This is the fourth time St. Luke’s has received this distinction. According to Thomson Reuters, it is difficult to be selected as a national benchmark hospital every year. Research has shown hospitals that win this award three or more times have particularly high levels of performance over many years. The announcement was made in 2012, but reflects data from 2011. “We are fortunate to have such exceptional medical staff, nurses and support staff who collaborate to continuously improve patient care,” said Ted Townsend, St. Luke’s president and CEO. “Being a four-time winner of this prestigious award is a reflection of the commitment, skill and experience of the healthcare providers, nurses and staff working at St. Luke’s.” It’s also a reflection of your generosity, for we could not achieve such success without your gifts and support. Thank you for helping make St. Luke’s Hospital one of the nation’s best.

Through a lifetime of quiet generosity, Ed and his late wife, Joan, helped the Child Protection Center and many other endeavors become what they are today. In this book, we honor Ed, Joan and each of you, for your gifts to St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation.


In my role as St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation president, I am gaining a new appreciation for the power of your generosity. Your generous gifts help make it possible for St. Luke’s Hospital to achieve its mission, “To give the healthcare we’d like our loved ones to receive.” Throughout this collection of stories of caring, you will read about people whose generosity is making a huge difference in the lives of patients and their families every day. At St. Luke’s Hospital, true selflessness is quite abundant—the joy when a baby is born; the elation when healing takes place; the concern with a tough diagnosis or unexpected outcome. The entire range of human emotions occurs, and your gifts help contain them. Your generosity helps make the happy stories happier and softens the effects of the sad stories. I wish I could tell every one of your stories in this honor roll of contributors. With each gift, you help improve the health of our community. In this roll of honor, we recognize and thank you for all you do for St. Luke’s Hospital, our patients and their families.

James M. Sealy St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation President

GenerouS For


heMPhiLLs show eternaL suPPort Ed Hemphill is an unassuming man. His late wife, Joan Theusen Hemphill, was a modest woman. Together, their quiet generosity has shaped St. Luke’s Hospital. From naming a birthing suite in 1979 in honor of the birth of their twin daughters in the 1950s, to donating the lead gift of $500,000 for the St. Luke’s Hospice Inpatient Unit Embracing Life campaign, the Hemphills’ support of St. Luke’s Hospital has spanned more than three decades and truly spans the cycle of life. “Whenever St. Luke’s has needed the Hemphills’ help, they’ve been here for us,” said Mary Klinger, director of major and planned gifts for St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation. “They’ve given significantly, generously and often.” “We’ve always been associated with St. Luke’s,” Ed said. “It’s just always been our hospital.” In 2007, the Hemphills donated $1.6 million to the Don’t Turn Away campaign for the St. Luke’s Child Protection Center—anonymously. “My wife didn’t want to have her name associated with things,” Ed said. “But she’s deceased now, and I think it’s time.” All they had to do was learn about abused children who needed their help to decide to give to St. Luke’s Child Protection Center.

“After I heard what those kids were going through, I was appalled,” Ed said. “They needed a new place, and I think we gave them enough to get that going.” Ed also has a special place in his heart for the services hospice provides. “People need privacy in their last moments, and we don’t have it here today,” Ed said. “That’s what really got me.” The Embracing Life campaign will create our community’s first dedicated Hospice Inpatient Unit at St. Luke’s Hospital. “The hospice inpatient unit will fill an unmet need for St. Luke’s patients and for our community,” said James R. Bell, MD, medical director for St. Luke’s Palliative Care and Hospice. “Sometimes the goal of comfort requires care that can only be provided in a hospital setting. “A major project such as this one requires philanthropic support,” said Dr. Bell. “The unit itself will be very tastefully done and will provide a more homelike atmosphere than typically would be seen in a hospital. It’s outside the scope of ‘normal’ renovation.” In addition, hospice doesn’t turn away anyone for lack of insurance or ability to pay, so the campaign will help grow the endowment fund necessary to sustain long-term operations.

It’s only through the generosity of people like Ed and Joan Hemphill that St. Luke’s can continue to provide the type of care that makes it a hospital people want to call their own.

s u e t e s Da h L e X e M P L i f i e s s t. L u k e ’ s a s s o C i at e G i v i n G Helping even one abused child makes you a hero. Helping more than 30,000 abused children makes you—well, it makes you Sue Tesdahl. The former manager of St. Luke’s Child Protection Center (CPC) retired at the end of 2011, after 25 years of service to St. Luke’s Hospital and as many years of dedication to child advocacy. Her commitment to helping Iowa’s most vulnerable children is matched only by her generosity. Sue’s cumulative personal, financial donations to St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation total nearly $25,000. “I feel that associates who work at St. Luke’s, in order to really make a contribution, have to believe in the mission,” Sue said. “For me, believing in the mission—not only of St. Luke’s, but of the CPC—meant involving myself totally in the effort.” As one of St. Luke’s CPC’s founders, Sue also helped establish four other accredited centers in Iowa, and several others working toward accreditation by the National Children’s Alliance.

As St. Luke’s President and CEO Ted Townsend noted, “Sue fought for state funding, lobbied to increase access and was tireless in her work to build collaborative efforts with community leaders, police forces, prosecutor offices and the courts so not only could we find and help the victims of child abuse, but we could work with all these others to ensure perpetrators went to jail, not just back home.”

Sue’s retirement doesn’t mean she’s lost her passion for the mission. Her ongoing involvement includes serving on St. Luke’s CPC’s Advisory Board as well as the Child Protection Council and the Child Abuse Prevention Advisory Council for the state of Iowa. And, she plans to continue helping St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation raise awareness and funds for the CPC endowment. St. Luke’s CPC is dependent on the support of St. Luke’s Hospital, St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation and donors who are committed to the protection of children. In addition, the CPC applies for numerous grants throughout the course of the year to help cover the deficit and to assist in purchasing necessary equipment. “The endowment will help the CPC defray costs,” Sue said. “In essence, people contributing to the endowment will be contributing to the care of children for years to come. “Abused children who don’t receive help can suffer their entire lives,” Sue said. “And abuse is more prevalent than many of us realize.

“National statistics show one in every four girls and one in every six boys will experience some form of sexual molestation by the age of 18,” Sue said. “So a person only has to look around their child’s classroom or a social group to realize how invasive the problem is.” Thanks to Sue Tesdahl’s generosity—and the generosity of donors like you—the world is a safer place for children.

Children never leave St. Luke’s Child Protection Center (CPC) without a stop at the toy closet on their way home. And thanks to the generosity of employees at Rockwell Collins, children who have been treated won’t go home empty-handed. A group of Rockwell Collins employees arrived at the CPC with a truckload of donations on December 15, 2011— the day of former manager Sue Tesdahl’s retirement party. They brought bags for boys and girls ranging in age from infants to teens, as well as art sets, coloring books and a gift card the center could use to purchase more toys. “The sheer volume of bags and number of items in the bags was overwhelming,” said CPC Manager Julie Kelly. “The donation from Rockwell was very heartwarming, because they had a core group of employees who were so dedicated, they came to visit the center beforehand to talk about what we really needed,” Julie said. “And they far surpassed our expectations with the quantity of items donated.”

s t. L u k e ’ s a u X i L i a r y w i n s b e n J a M i n f r a n k L i n awa r D For 63 years, St. Luke’s Auxiliary has worked tirelessly to support the mission of the hospital and help its staff give the healthcare we’d like our loved ones to receive. Quietly, often behind-the-scenes, the Auxiliary has donated $6.7 million to St. Luke’s Hospital. They ask nothing in return for their generosity. But in November 2011, the Eastern Iowa Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) took notice. Created for an individual or group that defies standard classification, AFP’s Benjamin Franklin Award recognizes an entity whose commitment to philanthropy is demonstrably profound. It’s an award only given when there are compelling reasons to recognize a group’s effort, and in 2011, that group was St. Luke’s Auxiliary. “We were truly amazed,” said Auxiliary President Sarah Rheinschmidt. “We were very surprised and honored to receive this award.” Through two decades of sponsoring The Festival of Trees—and now through other fundraisers, the hospital gift shop and Brewed Awakenings coffee shop—the Auxiliary works to inspire and motivate the practice and philosophy of philanthropy in the community; and to enhance the quality of life in Eastern Iowa. Nancy Skogsbergh, St. Luke’s Auxiliary historian and member of St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation Board of Directors, said, “What sets the Auxiliary apart is its ability to bring people together for the common good. “In receiving the award, we looked at the past years and all the ways in which we were able to give back to our hospital and the community that helped us with that,” Nancy said. “And we realized how much we really engaged the community in helping us raise money.” It’s that kind of generosity that has funded more projects, programs and equipment at St. Luke’s over the past six decades than we have room to list here. Suffice it to say, $6.7 million goes a long way toward improving the quality of care St. Luke’s delivers. All of which, Nancy said, has been the Auxiliary’s honor. “What a privilege for us to be able to give,” Nancy said. That’s what defines generosity. And for that, we are eternally grateful to the St. Luke’s Auxiliary.

t r a n s a M e r i C a h e L P s C r e at e C o n s i s t e n t C a r e The generosity of Transamerica has helped countless people at St. Luke’s Hospital, through more than $400,000 in cumulative contributions to a variety of programs and campaigns. In 2011, a $50,000 gift allowed St. Luke’s to launch the Emergency Department Consistent Care Program (EDCCP)—one of the first of its kind in the country. “St. Luke’s continues to be innovative and progressive in their view of healthcare,” said Lon Olejniczak, senior vice president for Transamerica and member of St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation Board of Directors. “So when they’re looking for better ways to improve or innovate, those are the types of programs we like to support.” EDCCP was created to help patients who use the Emergency Department (ER) frequently find the most appropriate healthcare services for their needs. “Our program includes people who have used the ER more than 12 times in the last 12 months,” said Marilyn Gerhold, an ER social worker at St. Luke’s. “Each of these patients receives an individualized care plan, so everyone knows the protocol to follow every time they come into the ER, regardless of which doctor they see.” The care plan, combined with follow-up after each program participant is discharged from the ER, leads to higher-quality and more consistent care. Thanks to the Transamerica grant, St. Luke’s hired a full-time case manager to run this program. The case manager works with program participants and their primary care providers to find alternatives to ER visits. The grant requires the program to be replicable, so St. Luke’s social workers have been collaborating with providers at other area hospitals, in addition to meeting with social workers across Eastern Iowa. As of March 1, 2012, the program had 130 enrolled patients, and more are being added each month. And, the ER staff is already seeing a decrease in patient visits.

“Helping these patients identify services they actually need and connecting them with the right services benefits everybody,” Marilyn said. “It reduces healthcare costs for the patients, the hospital and the community. But most importantly, we are improving the quality of life for our patients.”

“St. Luke’S ContinueS to Be

It’s that type of community-minded thinking Transamerica likes to fund. “Under Ted Townsend’s leadership, the entire St. Luke’s philosophy is based on looking out for the greater good of our community,” Lon said. “You can see their enthusiasm about this program, because it really is going to make everyone better.”

GeneroSity Perhaps no single person better exemplifies generosity than Helen G. Nassif. Her continued vision helps St. Luke’s Hospital fulfill its mission, “To give the healthcare we’d like our loved ones to receive.” Most recently, she gave $1 million to create the Helen G. Nassif Community Cancer Center of Iowa – one more way Ms. Nassif is helping improve healthcare for our community. The Helen G. Nassif Community Cancer Center of Iowa is a collaborative effort among nearly 200 local physicians and St. Luke’s Hospital to consolidate the area’s cancer care services into a single facility. “I believe in the collaborative spirit between physicians and other providers working together for the patient,” said Ms. Nassif. “It’s my hope that this center can someday be a platform for all providers in Cedar Rapids to work together.” We’ll never feel we can thank Ms. Nassif enough. Her generosity benefits the whole community.

Thanks to Rockwell Collins Retiree Volunteers (RCRV), children who couldn’t speak now have a new voice. RCRV members not only volunteer their time and talents to help worthy recipients, they also fund a Charitable Grant Program. In 2011, the grant focused on assistive devices for the disabled, and provided $2,000 to St. Luke’s Witwer Children’s Therapy to purchase an Alt-Chat™ device. “Alt-Chat™ is a communication device for children who can’t speak,” said Sharon Hill, Witwer Children’s Therapy manager. “It’s a computer, activated by a touch screen, that generates speech for the child.” Witwer Children’s Therapy is one of the largest outpatient pediatric therapy centers in the state. Staff there provide occupational, physical and speech therapy for children with disabilities. According to Sharon, speech therapists use the Alt-Chat™ to help children with vocal-cord paralysis, coordination issues and other communication problems. “With an Alt-Chat™ device, we can test and evaluate children who may need one of their own to use. It helps clients with reimbursement, since insurance companies are more likely to pay for devices that have been proven to work. It’s been very effective,” said Sharon. “We have several children who have their own units now, and we continue to use it as an evaluative device.” RCRV puts retired Rockwell engineers to work in the community, often designing and building assistive devices for people with disabilities. “We have about 250 volunteers, and in the last two years, we’ve given more than 100,000 volunteer hours,” said John McDonough, community projects team chair for RCRV. John sponsored the Witwer Children’s Therapy grant application. “If someone needs a device to make their lives easier, we’ll design and build it for them.” Witwer Children’s Therapy recently gave Cliff Koop, another Rockwell retiree, its “Excellence in Teamwork” award for generously building specialized equipment for numerous patients for only the cost of materials. “I think when you take care of children, especially children who are vulnerable or disabled, it’s a true measure of the spirit of people who are kind and generous,” Sharon said. “These incredibly committed retirees are really in it for the children. They’re donating their time and they’re doing it for the right reasons.”

erb’s teChnoLoGy soLutions Gives QuietLy but GenerousLy We’re grateful to every local business and corporate sponsor that supports St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation, especially those like Erb’s Technology Solutions, which exemplifies a commitment to improving our community. “It’s always been extremely important to us to get involved in our community,” said Mike Brogan, Erb’s president and CEO. “When we were presented with the opportunity to support St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation, it was very clear to us the influence our involvement could have. We didn’t want to support a cause just to say we did— which is why we continue to donate. We see a genuine relationship with St. Luke’s and understand the benefits and value in having good healthcare partners.” A donor since 1981, Erb’s has given thousands of dollars to a variety of St. Luke’s causes. Especially significant to Erb’s are their contributions to the newborn intensive care unit (NICU), where many employees have experienced its benefits firsthand. “There have been a number of Erb’s families that have seen the likes of the NICU, and all the wonderful things it’s capable of,” Mike said. An active supporter of many Cedar Rapids causes, the 50-year-old, locally owned technology company took a dynamic role in flood recovery in 2008, inviting flood-displaced businesses to use Erb’s as a temporary worksite. Erb’s sees great value in supporting community healthcare as well. “St. Luke’s has made our community, the health of our community and the lives of everyone in our community a priority,” Mike said. “We want to see our community flourish and we want to support areas that help do that. When we contribute to the Foundation, we are confident our donations are being utilized in a way that’s beneficial for everyone involved.” We’re very grateful for corporate partners like Erb’s. We couldn’t do what we do without their generosity. And, as Mike said, “At the end of the day, good healthcare partners make our community a stronger one.” Gary Denison, JiM koCh anD kevin torner froM erb’s teChnoLoGy soLutions, with aManDa Guttau anD her twins in the niCu

teD townsenD stanDs in front of st. Luke’s waLL of honor in the hosPitaL’s a avenue Lobby



Day in and day out, St. Luke’s associates live our mission. This is demonstrated in the care they provide and their personal generosity to St. Luke’s. In 2011, over 1,100 associates gave more than $280,000 to our associate annual giving campaign, called iCare. This was an increase over the giving in 2010 of more than $24,000. The 2011 iCare campaign focused on raising funds for our community’s first Hospice Inpatient Unit. Our associates are obviously passionate about creating a Hospice Inpatient Unit – their dedication goes beyond the bedside. I hear stories every day about the great care associates provide, and that makes me proud. I am also proud of their generous spirit.

The Rural Health Care Endowment Fund was established in the early ’80s, during the farm crisis. The crisis put a strain on the support of small rural communities’ emergency medical services. St. Luke’s Health Care Foundation developed the idea of giving small grants to rural ambulance services. A number of corporate gifts originally established the fund and in 1996, St. Luke’s employees started designating money to this fund through annual fundraising. Since that time, other friends of St. Luke’s have contributed to this fund. Since the first grant was made in 1980, 131 applicants have been granted more than $255,000.
