Medical center capital campaign receives large year-end gifts

Greene County Medical Center’s $4 million “Investing in Tomorrow’s Care” capital campaign ended 2014 at 79 percent of its goal. This came in large part to some end-of-year gifts from area and supporting businesses that totaled $95,000.

Roberts said, “It is rewarding to see area businesses and organizations participate in the success of this campaign. Having a medical center in Greene County is important to all of us.”

She continued, “the campaign should reach 85 percent of its goal by mid-summer and then when the expansion portion of the project is completed in late June of this year, we’ll be ready to ask the public to help us reach 100 percent.”
