Thanks to the generous support of our Regional One Health family, the 2014 Employee Giving Campaign raised $155,000 to help advance medical excellence for the future of our community.

Employees from throughout the Regional One Health system commit to donate to the Foundation each year in the month of May. At the end of this year’s Employee Giving Campaign, the Foundation hosted a celebratory reception for all employee donors on Jefferson Avenue.

The Memphis-MidSouth Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure provided funding to help uninsured women get their annual breast cancer screenings and diagnostic care at Regional One Health’s Breast Clinic. A total of 1,000 women received potentially life-saving mammograms in 2014 because of this grant.

The Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center received a grant from the First Tennessee Foundation to support the community and transitional rooms for mothers of NICU patients.

Members of the critical-care pharmacy residency program at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy recently made a $1,000 contribution to benefit the Elvis Presley Trauma Center. The group began donating last year to the trauma center as part of the program’s 25th anniversary.

This year’s Elvis Presley Fans Donor Reception included special guest George “GK” Klein. Elvis fans in attendance were treated to a special appearance by the lifelong personal friend of The King along with a tour of the Elvis Presley Trauma Center at Regional Medical Center.

We are grateful for the support of our friends at the Bella Vita gift shop in Collierville for hosting an annual fundraiser for the Elvis Presley Trauma Center. Each year the shop holds a special sale and reception in honor of the owner’s mother, Laurie Losorwith, who was treated at Regional One Health following a traumatic equestrian accident.
