Healing Families—Healing Communities®. Parrish Medical Center
(PMC) employees live that vision in a big way. They raised more than $110,000
in their sixth annual employee giving campaign. Cochaired by Ryan Hieronymus
and Sheryl Shelley, the PMC Circle of Giving Committee rallied employees
and selected a signature project that reaches out to the community.
This year’s signature project consists of three projects focused
on providing healing experiences to our community.
- Individual televisions for Dialysis Center patient beds to educate and
entertain our patients during their lengthy treatment times (average time:
three hours per visit, three times per week).
- The Women’s Center of Brevard, Yolanda Marquette Garvin Gifting Circle—an
endowment fund in memory of a beloved PMC employee who lost her life because
of domestic violence. This endowment fund will create a legacy in Yolanda’s
name to help victims of domestic violence for years to come.
Patient and family waiting room improvements to enhance our healing environment
and further our mission of providing
Healing experiences for everyone all the time®.
With this year’s “Parrish 300 … Drive For Excellence”
campaign theme, the drivers (PMC vice presidents and department directors)
left the starting line with all gears engaged. Local race car driver,
Brian Finney, sponsored by Bob Steele Chevrolet in Cocoa, displayed car
#80 outside the hospital to build excitement during the campaign kickoff.
PMC employees took souvenir photos around the car while the "drivers"
competed in the remote control car race “qualifying event”
sponsored in part by Space Coast R/C in Cocoa.
“The generosity of our employees is amazing. We’d like to thank
everyone who supported the campaign and who are committed to providing
healing experiences to our community,” agreed Hieronymus and Shelley.
