In part due to generous donors to the Foundation, the mission of UnityPoint Health - Central Illinois is rarely limited by financial constraints.
In the Spirit of Giving
The UnityPoint Health - Central Illinois Foundation is the beneficiary of the volunteer service provided by the Service League of UnityPoint Health - Methodist and the Service Auxiliary of UnityPoint Health - Proctor. The Service League volunteers run the hospital's gift and flower shops and hold an annual gift show. The Service Auxiliary operates the Proctor Snack and Soda Shop and the gift shop. Both organizations have a long history of supporting equipment and technology advances, improving patient care, supporting staff and much more through their generous contributions to the Foundation.
The Service League on the Methodist Campus has provided funding for cardio-respiratory monitors for premature newborns to improve their care and outcomes; telehealth monitors for home health patients; and Halo room disinfectant machines to improve patient safety. The Service Auxiliary has funded a TransSit "practice" car to help patients on the Transitional Care Center re-learn how to get in and out of a car as well as a dynamic stair trainer to improve their mobility and quality of life when returning home; and new crash carts to provide for identical carts on both campuses.
Both organizations not only provide needed funds to meet the demands of healthcare today, but they also provide a lot of the face and the heart of both hospitals by greeting patients, families and guests with a smile and a warm heart.
