Foundation Director of Donor Relations - Ada Kirven, Auxiliary Board Members Linda Sutphin, Ann Kilpatrick, Jill Mitchell, Sandy Pilch, Karen Steir, Ethelyn St. John, Maurita Meehan, Stella Montano, and Development Coordinator Jasmine Slater.

On Friday, Jan. 8, the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Auxiliary voted unanimously to pledge $50,000 to the Transitional Care Expansion at Sheridan Memorial Hospital. 

With this gift, the Auxiliary has given $724,000 to Sheridan Memorial Hospital since 1991, according to a press release from SMH. 

With a mission “to provide comfort to and better the welfare of Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s patients,” The Auxiliary Board members voted on the opportunity that best exemplified their purpose. This year’s funds will impact patient care throughout the hospital by going to the Transitional Care Unit (TCU), as this service is a multi-disciplinary team made numerous departments. The TCU team includes Nursing, Physical, Occupational, Speech and Respiratory Therapy, Case Management and Social Services, Nutritional Services, Wound Care, and more, according to the release. 

Foundation Director of Donor Relations Ada Kirven, Development Coordinator Jasmine Slater and Chief Development Officer Cody Sinclair gratefully accepted the gift presented on behalf of the numerous departments who will be positively impacted by this contribution.

“We appreciate the time spent coordinating and working alongside this generous and passionate board of volunteers,” Sinclair said. “This donation is part of a long Auxiliary tradition in continuing to support hospital & Foundation projects that will expand the healthcare available to our community. These women continue to help enhance the patient experience throughout the entire organization, and we are so fortunate to be able to collaborate with such an incredible group.”
