Raedena Ryan, Executive Director of the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Foundation.
TAYLORVILLE — The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the Executive Director of the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Foundation, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Raedena Ryan shared with Kiwanis members that the Foundation was founded in 1991, and incorporat- ed in 1995, with three areas of focus: Patient Care, Education, and Community Health.
Ryan added that each area has provided grants from dollars raised by the Foundation. Patient Care grants have gone towards providing mammograms and purchasing medical technology, while Education grants have provided college scholarships to students attending nursing training and coming back to work at TMH. Community Health grants have provided funding for a pediatric dental program.
Ryan told Kiwanis members that the TMH Foundation raises funds in the community, to then use in these 3 areas of focus in giving those funds back. The Foundation also has had several donors establish endowments.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organ- ization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
