Cook Family Foundation Supports Memorial Campaign

May 31, 2016

The Cook Family Foundation has made a commitment of up to $150,000 to the Going to a Higher Level Campaign of Memorial Healthcare Foundation to support the implementation of a plan for the renovation and redesign of the Emergency Department at Memorial Healthcare.  

“It is a pleasure to partner with Memorial Healthcare, the Foundation and its donors, and physician leaders to invest in our emergency department – a vital asset for a healthy community,” said Tom Cook, executive director of the family’s Foundation.  

The Going to a Higher Level Campaign is an effort to raise funds to renovate and redesign the Emergency Department at Memorial Healthcare – the only emergency department in Shiawassee County.  A primary mission of Memorial Healthcare is providing the highest quality emergency medical care and the planned investment is expected to improve the quality of care and experience of each patient.  The Cook Family Foundation commitment will match the amount of physician contributions to the campaign, up to a maximum award of $150,000.

“We are grateful for The Cook Family Foundation and for its recognition of all that our medical staff does for the health and safety of the community,” said Ronald Bishop, DO, chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Memorial Healthcare.  “We would love to maximize their generous matching gift with $150,000, or more, in support from our medical staff.”

Memorial Healthcare Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation governed by an independent board of directors. The Foundation provides continuing financial support for the development and improvement of Memorial Healthcare’s programs, services, technology and facilities.
