The future of healthcare and the hospital that provides it weighs on the minds of people of all ages. This topic, presented by Dennis Lee, Methodist Hospital President and CEO, drew 30 Club 300 members and guests on March 25. Club 300, an annual giving program under Partners in Health, designed to introduce younger community members, under the age of 55, to Methodist Hospital.
Guests gathered in Administration as they received first-hand information on key subjects such as a construction update, the Blue Cross issue and had the opportunity to participate in a lively question and answer session. The group headed on an insider's tour of the Hollfelder Emergency Care Center and the Stangeland cath lab, guided by Cathy Kaliel, Emergency Department Manager, and Markus Acosta, Lead RN for the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.
The tour was followed by a cocktail reception with Foundation Board Members Carmen Thibault and Dr. James Lin. Ms. Thibault, who also serves as co-chair of Partners in Health, spoke during the reception about the importance of this generation becoming involved in their community and the value of following in their parent's footsteps of volunteerism and philanthropic support or starting new traditions in their households.
Club 300 offers members a unique opportunity to make new friends and network with individuals who share a strong sense of community and philanthropy while making a difference at Methodist Hospital all while supporting emergency services and first-rate medical care at Methodist Hospital.
