Riverview Health Foundation and its Board of Directors recently presented Riverview Health with a check for $500,000 to support the purchase of a new large-bore MRI machine, the renovation of the hospital’s atrium and several other projects. This is the 10th consecutive year Riverview Health Foundation has gifted $500,000 or more to Riverview Health.
“As the philanthropic arm of Riverview Health, we are grateful for the opportunity to contribute money toward building healthy lives together,” said Megan Wiles, Riverview Health Foundation executive director. “None of this would be possible without the support of the community and our generous donors.”
In 2016, Riverview Health Foundation will celebrate its 40th anniversary of supporting Riverview Health and enhancing patient experience through philanthropic efforts and fundraising. The Foundation has gifted more than $12 million to Riverview Health for building projects—such as the Women’s Pavilion and Emergency Center— as well as equipment and programs for patients. The Foundation will celebrate these accomplishments at the 40th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, September 17, 2016.
