NHRMC employees donate more than $175,000 to support patients and each other 06/13/2013 WILMINGTON – In the most successful employee campaign in its history, New Hanover Regional Medical Center employees have shown their commitment to caring by donating money from their paychecks to the NHRMC Foundation’s Employee Campaign. Employees donated more than $175,000 to the annual campaign which supports special projects in the hospital that benefit patients and employees in need.
“We are overwhelmed by the success of this year’s campaign and the generosity of our employees,” said Aline Lasseter, vice president of development & executive director of the NHRMC Foundation. “Our employees are very compassionate, dedicated people who want to do everything they can to help our patients and each other.”
The Employee Campaign gives NHRMC, Pender Memorial Hospital, and NHRMC Physician Group employees an opportunity to donate to the general fund or to a particular area of the hospital, including nursing education or the Employee Benevolent Fund, which assists employees facing a financial crisis or hardship.
New Hanover Regional Medical Center is the leading provider of quality and accessible health care in Southeastern North Carolina, delivering care to all in need, without the support of taxpayer dollars. The medical center takes seriously its responsibility as an economic engine for the community, creating more than 5,000 jobs directly and another 6,000 jobs indirectly.
