OakBend Medical Center’s Employee Giving Campaign Raises More Than $101,000

OakBend Medical Center CEO Joe Freudenberger.

For the past three years, OakBend Medical Center employees have donated to the Seeds of Generosity employee campaign raising more than $396,000. The 2020 was the most successful to date with employee giving exceeding $101,000. This year, 345 employees donated to the campaign and surpassed the $100,000 goal.

Development Director, Schell Hammel sent an email to the staff stating “Being the ‘new guy’ in town, I can’t covey how impressed I have been with the family mentality at OakBend. You should all be so very proud of yourselves. Regardless of where you chose for your money to go, you made a difference in someone’s life this year or many lives. That should not go without notice.”

This year’s funds will be split between the purchase of Workstations on Wheels (WOWs) that allow nurses to easily get from one room to the next with all of the patient’s pertinent information, and the OakBend Branches program, which will help fund care for the underserved children in our area.
