21st Century Campaign - Adena Health Foundation
Your contributions and faith to the Adena Health Foundation are vital as we offer more health care in Southern Ohio.
Our growth is important to you because it helps us fulfill the promise to serve our communities with the best possible healthcare. Throughout our history, we’ve been overwhelmed by your generous support to the Adena Health Foundation. We’re proud to be part of such a caring and giving community.
That’s why we want to let you know what’s happening with Adena’s growth at all times. We encourage you to get involved and be a part of your healthcare in the way you feel most comfortable.
With your contribution to the 21st Century Campaign, the Adena Health Foundation can assist the hospital as new advanced medical technology is available. Thanks to generous donors, our goal is to raise $700,000 by June 30, 2013. Our first priority is to assist the hospital with the implementation and growth of the new robotic-assisted surgery program.
Adena is the only hospital in Ohio south of I-70 and east of I-71 that can offer you, your family members and friends the option for robotic-assisted surgery. Already, the Adena Family has donated over $250,000 to this Campaign and the Adena Health Foundation contributed an additional $300,000. We’re seeking an additional $450,000 from individuals and businesses in the community, because it is very likely that you already know someone who will benefit. It’s all about giving you the best healthcare close to home.
Sherrill Schottelkottie’s story of her robotic surgery experience…
When Sherrill needed a hysterectomy, she had just started a new job at Adena and had not accrued enough leave time for a lengthy recovery.
Sherill’s Adena doctor recommended a hospital in another city that offered robotic surgery which promised no big incisions and a faster recovery time. Instead of a two to three day hospital stay and a six to eight week recovery period, Sherill was discharged within 12 hours of her surgery and was back to work in four days.
Today, she is a strong supporter of the benefits of robotic surgery technology and Adena’s fundraising campaign to help the hospital offer more patients the benefits of new technology.
