APD Honors Contributors at Annual Donor Recognition Event
November 23, 2012—In appreciation of its generous supporters, Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital and Health Systems thanked its contributors at a Donor Recognition Reception on November 15, 2012 at the Dwinell Room at Harvest Hill.
With a full house in attendance, the evening celebrated the support of individuals and businesses for their involvement and commitment to APD and its mission.
"Our community forms the foundation of this organization, and financial contributions from members of that community are the sustaining lifeblood," stated Melanie N. Moore, Associate Vice President of Philanthropy and Community Relations.”It is important to recognize our donors, whose gifts have funded many services and improvements at APD over the years. Expressing our gratitude face-to-face is as important to us as I believe it is to our supporters.”
This year’s annual event featured a talk by the Hospital’s new President & CEO, Sue Mooney, MD, MS. “The national conversation about healthcare payment reform is impacting small community hospitals like APD,” said Dr. Mooney. “We have a strategic team forecasting how we can deliver the services our community needs in a cost efficient way and remain true to our mission. In every decision we make we must ask ourselves how are we improving the quality, decreasing the cost and increasing the access to healthcare.”
