Annual Team Member Campaign Funds Educational Opportunities

The St. Anthony’s Hospital Foundation Team Member Campaign is moving into its third week as generous team members, physicians and volunteers continue to give back to the hospital.
 
The more than 100 attendees for the July 12 Clinical Grand Rounds saw firsthand how donations to the campaign are used by the Foundation. Donations to the Team Member Campaign help the Foundation to support the Grand Rounds and other educational opportunities at the hospital.
 
“We thank the Foundation for their generous support,” said Mary Siegel, disease management coordinator, who helps to organize the Grand Rounds sessions. “We could not do this without the Foundation and we are so grateful that they are always willing to help.”
 
The July 12 session featured Vikas Bhatia, MD, a board-certified internist who specializes in the treatment of cardiovascular 
disease.
 
Attendees sang Happy Birthday to Dr. Bhatia who was celebrating his special day.
 
Donations can be made to one, two or all three of the categories supported by the annual campaign:
  • ?The Foundation supports programs such as the Memory Disorders Center, Pathways Behavioral Health, POWER Breast Cancer Program and the Diabetes Self-Management Education program; new equipment purchases, scholarships and team member grants to attend professional conferences.
  • SAFE (St. Anthony’s Fund for Emergencies) helps team members experiencing a financial crisis due to some unexpected event.
  • The United Way Suncoast which supports a variety of programs in the community.
?To donate, please see your department champion or contact Jennifer Walsh, Foundation representative, at Jennifer.Walsh@
BayCare.org; or at (727) 502-4049.
 
The campaign continues through Aug. 11.
