West Plains Sunrise Rotary Club issues Fundraising Challenge for OMC Foundation Capital Campaign
The West Plains Sunrise Rotary Club made a $5,000 contribution to the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation “Building the Future” Campaign and would like to issue a challenge to all other civic organizations in the area. The Rotarians recognize the importance of a hospital in the community and hope that others will see the benefits as well.
"The West Plains Sunrise Rotary Club is pleased to be in a position to make this donation to what is inarguably a transformative project for both OMC and our region. Rotary is about service and support of our local communities and is made up of committed members who want to find ways to make an impact. This project is one way we can contribute to what is going to be a tremendous positive impact. Rotary focuses internationally on peace, disease reduction and prevention, clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. The OMC expansion project is going to positively affect our region in several of those focus areas,” says Josh Drummond, Sunrise Rotary President. He went on to say, “We would like to challenge all other civic organizations in our area to make a contribution as well!”
The “Building the Future” Campaign was created to assist OMC in bringing many of their doctors under one roof, expand the hospital to connect to the Shaw Building, create a first-ever state-of-the-art Women’s Center in the region, and provide overall more convenient, compassionate care to all it serves.
The Ozarks Medical Center Foundation, established in 1998 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with a local board of directors, serves as a liaison between the donor and OMC to assist the hospital in providing excellent healthcare to the communities it serves. For more information or to make a gift to the OMC Foundation, please call 417-853-5200.
