Windsor Severance Fire Rescue Pink Shirt Fundraiser

January 14, 2015

For 11 months of the year, red is the color most commonly associated with fire departments. However, during one month of the year – October – the Windsor Severance Fire Rescue (WSFR) goes pink to support breast cancer awareness.

Firefighters-fundraiser

WSFR firefighters and staff wear pink t-shirts every other day throughout the month of October to raise breast cancer awareness and sell the same shirts to raise money for the cause. Proceeds from their efforts this year benefitted our PVH and MCR Foundation, with the money being allocated to the UCHealth Cancer Center in Fort Collins.

“The firefighters, emergency care providers and staff at Windsor Severance Fire Rescue already do so much to keep our community safe and well that we were touched by their extra efforts to help fund services at the UCHealth Cancer Center,” said Erica Siemers, senior director, PVH and MCR Foundation. “This has become an annual fundraiser for them and we greatly appreciate their support.”

WSFR raised more than $2,000 with proceeds from its t-shirt sales! T-shirts sold for $15 and long sleeved tees sold for $20.

We are grateful that this year’s contribution is being used toward finishing the third and final phase of the cancer center, the 8,000 square foot renovation to create the Survivorship and Wellness Center!

“It’s fulfilling to see the money raised being used locally,” said Chief Herb Brady, WSFR. “It seems everyone knows someone who is fighting cancer so we always look forward to this opportunity to impact the community we serve in a different way.”

Thank you, Windsor Severance Fire Rescue!

2014 IMPACT

January 6, 2015

pvh-imact-report1 As 2014 has ended and 2015 is upon us, we wanted to take the time to thank you and show the impact that has been made on the PVH & MCR Foundation. As Erica J. Siemers stated, “In this report you will come across many numbers, but the real measure of our accomplishments over the past year are the stories behind the numbers. The stories tell of a community that has rallied in support of health, and of the individuals whose lives have been changed through generosity.” In 2014, the total gifts, grants, and commitments received by the PVH and MCR Foundation totaled $5,504,469. Truly amazing. The largest individual commitment was made by an individual donor in support of the UCHealth Cancer center and UCHealth research programs. The donation was $1,564,844. impact-report-numbers Total granted for scholarship support | $170,250

The PVH and MCR Foundation scholarship program fosters the professional development of UCHealth staff in its affiliated hospitals and clinics through matching donors’ passions for education with employees’ academic dreams. This year $170,250 was provided to support northern Colorado staff in pursuit of their goals.

Total given by employees | $282,216 The PVH and MCR Foundation is fortunate to include employees of Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, and their affiliated clinics among its generous donors. Nearly a third of the employees at UCHealth in the northern region gave via payroll deduction this year, with more signing up every day. These employee contributions demonstrate the culture of giving at UCHealth and have a significant impact on the programs and services that the foundation is able to support.

Total granted for Employee Emergency Assistance Fund (EEAF) grants | $56,543

“I would like to express my appreciation for approval of assistance that was given to me recently. That was the most unselfish thing anyone has ever done for me. It makes me proud to be part of such an awesome group of people that are willing to take that extra step to help someone out in need. It does feel like family and I love being a part of that.” – Anonymous, EEAF grant recipient

quote-schlorship PVH-events The long-anticipated UCHealth Cancer Center was unveiled to the public for the first time at a ribbon cutting on June 4. The celebration brought together donors, community leaders, residents, UCHealth staff and musical entertainment in advance of the first patients receiving services on June 9. Speaking on behalf of the UCHealth Cancer Center, W. Thomas Purcell, MD, Ph.D., Associate Director for Clinical Services of the University of Colorado Cancer Center and Executive Medical Director of Oncology Services at University of Colorado Hospital, and Matthew Sorensen, MD, medical oncologist at the Medical Center of the Rockies, talked about the impact the facility is expected to have on cancer care and well-being in northern Colorado. Other speakers at the event included Mike Dellenbach, PVH and MCR Foundation board chairman, JoAnn Lovins, service line director for oncology at UCHealth, Bill Neff, MD, then interim president and CEO of UCHealth, Kevin Unger, CEO of Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies, Vikki Wagner, chair of the Survivor Advisory Council and Karen Weitkunat, mayor of Fort Collins. More than 1,000 attendees were invited to tour the state-of-the-art facility and learn more about the care team and comprehensive services offered. The individuals, corporations and foundations who provided the financial support needed to bring the facility to life were also recognized. While this main treatment hub of UCHealth’s cancer services has been open to patients since June, fundraising will continue through December 31, 2014 to complete the wellness and survivorship center and to reach the comprehensive $6.1 million fundraising goal for the cancer center project.     WISH-impact A WISH come true…nearly $34,000 awarded to health programs in Larimer County A group of ambitious women came together last year with the goal of creating a healthier community.

Raising Spirits and Funds with Piano Campaign

December 23, 2014

Raising Spirits and Funds with Piano Campaign
Music and the arts are huge part of Loveland’s identity and earlier this month the PVH and MCR Foundation partnered with the Loveland Orchestra for a piano campaign. The Loveland Orchestra members generously volunteered their time to bring awareness to the campaign by performing in the Medical Center of the Rockies hospital lobby.

The goal: $8,500 which will be used to purchase a baby grand player piano with a library of music installed in an electronic system to play music when no one is at the piano.

The performances have passed, but the fundraiser is still open. Imagine beautifully orchestrated music playing, even without a pianist present. The benefits of music in a health care setting have been shown in patients with a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, emphysema and cardiovascular disease.

In addition, it has been observed that music reduces anxiety and increases the release of dopamine in the brain, a chemical that creates pleasure, boosting the well-being of those with illnesses, as well as those without.

“We appreciate these talented musicians who are volunteering their time to demonstrate the value of music in a hospital setting,” said Erica Siemers, senior director, PVH and MCR Foundation. “The goal of this unique project is to enable music to ring through the halls of MCR daily, enhancing the year-round experience of patients, their families and hospital staff.”

“Our musicians are excited to have this opportunity to bring their talents and some holiday spirit to MCR this holiday season,” said Luciano R. Silvestri, Jr., conductor of the Loveland Orchestra. “We hope that people will come from inside and outside of the hospital to enjoy the music and consider supporting this important project.”

To find out more about the piano campaign, or make a contribution, go to http://www.supportinghealth.org or call Anna Smoot at 970.624.1870.

Cancer Center Fundraiser Hits the Home Stretch

December 17, 2014

Cancer Center Fundraiser Hits the Home Stretch - generosityheals.org

More than 3,500 individuals, foundations and corporations have made contributions towards the University of Colorado Health Cancer Center. However, as all good things must come to an end; the PVH and MCR Foundation announced that the fundraising campaign will come to a close on December 31st, 2014.

“This achievement – put in terms a Coloradan can really relate to – is as thrilling as nearing the summit of a 14’er.” – Kevin Unger, President and CEO, Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies.

The campaign supported the development of the 30,000 square foot addition that opened in June and provides one-door access to all-inclusive, world-class care for cancer patients. Located on the Harmony campus, the cancer center is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, as well as services to make patients feel as comfortable and emotionally whole as possible during their cancer journey.

Coming Soon: Survivorship and Wellness Center

Additional dollars raised will fund an 8,000 square foot renovation to create the Survivorship and Wellness Center, slated for completion in 2015.

“When the cancer center opened its doors on June 9, we were still working toward phase three in our fundraising – to support the Survivorship and Wellness Center,” explained Erica Siemers, senior director, PVH and MCR Foundation. “We are nearing that goal and expect that end-of-year gifts may carry us over the finish line for this final, vital part of the project.”

“While the cancer center is now open, providing one-door access to leading-edge cancer care, our work is not quite done and we need your help. We are close; but not yet at the campaign’s goal. The Survivorship and Wellness Center, which will provide services like physical therapy, massage therapy, a nutritional counseling and more, needs our continued support. And it can’t be ignored, it’s the part that cancer survivors told us was essential and sets us apart from other care facilities.” – Kevin Unger

“Together we have traveled so far, let’s reach the summit of this 14’er.” – Kevin Unger

Please join us in this last “hurrah” to support the cancer center’s fundraising campaign. To support by making a donation, please contact the PVH and MCR Foundation at 970.237.7400.

Thank you!

Dr. Stanley Henson Honored For 50+ Years of Medical Service

December 10, 2014
Dr. Stanley Henson Honored For Over 50 Years of Medical Service

Dr. Don Beard talking with Dr. Stanley Henson

A Pioneer 

One of the first surgeons to practice in the city of Fort Collins, Stanley Henson, MD, was honored on Sunday, October 26 at a reception for retired physicians presented by the PVH and MCR Foundation and hosted by Columbine Health System. Many of the more than 60 physicians in attendance were medical pioneers, like Dr. Henson, being among the first to practice their individual specialties at Poudre Valley Hospital (PVH).

“I would like to thank Dr. Henson and all of the physicians who came to the reception for the indelible print they have made on the practice of medicine at PVH,” said Kevin Unger, president/CEO of PVH and Medical Center of the Rockies (MCR).

Wrestling Champ to Surgeon

A Fort Collins resident since 1956, Dr. Henson will turn 98 years old next month. Prior to his medical career, Dr. Henson made a name for himself as a wrestler at Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State) where he won three NCAA championships. He is now the oldest living NCAA wrestling champion. After college, Dr. Henson attended medical school in Maryland and trained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. for four years before moving to Colorado to work as a surgeon at PVH and in private practice. Before Dr. Henson moved to Fort Collins, patients needed to travel to Denver for any significant surgeries. He worked in Fort Collins as a surgeon for over 50 years.

Many Lives Saved

Dr. James Wise and Dr. Merlin Otteman, who partnered with Dr. Henson at the surgical practice of Henson, Wise and Otteman, were at the event to provide remarks about their former colleague. It was Dr. Henson, however, who captivated the audience when he shared stories from the early days of his surgical practice. He recalled a horrific car accident which claimed the lives of the father, mother and an infant who were riding in the front seat of the car. The back seat held three sisters who were injured and rushed to PVH where Dr. Henson performed a splenectomy on each girl, one right after the other. Because of his actions, all three girls survived.

Dr. Henson has documented many of his experiences, and those of other local doctors, in his book, Touching Lives: A History of Medicine in Fort Collins. The book, published in 2004, provides a factual, detailed account of what physicians faced in the early days of health care in Fort Collins and is a source of much conversation among those who were at the reception.

The Retired Physicians Reception

The Retired Physicians Reception has quickly become a highly anticipated annual gathering among those who attend.

“The foundation is proud to be part of the reception and to honor these physicians for their service,” explained Erica Siemers, senior director, PVH and MCR Foundation. “The group shares a strong bond from their work as some of the first specialists to care for the people of Fort Collins and they enjoy reminiscing about those days.”

Former Nurse Gives the Gift of Education

December 3, 2014

Sharyn - Former Nurse Gives Gift of Education to Future UCHealth Nurses

The holiday season is marked by gift giving to people we know, but also to strangers in need. This gift from a former PVH nurse is one that will truly continue to keep on giving.

“We rise by lifting others.”Robert Ingersoll

Sharyn Salmen, a former nurse who worked at Poudre Valley Hospital (PVH) for 12 years, has made such a gift through the PVH and MCR Foundation. Her bequest will provide future scholarships for advanced education to nurses at University of Colorado Health (UCHealth) in northern Colorado. While Salmen does not know the nurses who will benefit from the scholarships she is providing, she does know the need is great.

“I would like to leave a legacy to assist nurses who desire to advance their education. It is my time to give back, and to look forward to the future by offering a resource incentive to help prepare and motivate the next generation of nurses – the heart of the hospital or healthcare system,” explained Salmen.

During her tenure at PVH, Salmen worked as the assistant administrator/director of nursing and vice president of patient care (chief nursing officer). She supported nurses’ advanced education for improved care at bedside. Specifically, with her team, she initiated and developed programs including a model of collaborative practice with physicians, a clinical ladder program to reward nurses with advanced degrees and a managerial ladder program for nursing leaders with advanced degrees to expand their leadership.

“I believe advanced education for nurses will provide transformative opportunities for them to best meet the triple goals of improved population health, reduced costs and enhanced patient experience within the UCHealth system resulting in a healthier northern Colorado,” said Salmen.

“Education provides problem solving skills which leads to excellence in patient care and improved patient outcomes in our community,” she added.

One of the ways the PVH and MCR Foundation is able to provide scholarships to employees of UCHealth is due to the generous support of people who make bequests through the foundation. Another generous gift from the estate of Richard G. Titus established the Richard G. Titus Scholarship for Nurse Leaders. So far, Titus scholarships have been awarded to 12 recipients. Nursing scholarships are also supported through UCHealth employee giving.

“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward” – Kahlil Gibran

“Sharyn’s generous bequest is a perfect example of how deeply UCHealth staff – past and present – care about what they do,” said Kevin Unger, president and CEO, Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies. “We are so grateful that she made this decision to support our mission of advancing world-class health care in northern Colorado.”

Safe Kids Larimer County

October 21, 2014

The Safe Kids Larimer County coalition is administered out of the UCHealth Community Health Improvement Department in Fort Collins and needs 100 infant car seats and 50 convertible car seats for infants/toddlers whose parents cannot afford to purchase the safety equipment. Safe Kids has partnered with the Evenflo Company for the child passenger safety equipment.

Each car seat comes with education so it is a great benefit to the community as well as the child; 4 classes are offered per month (3 in English, 1 in Spanish). Our community health educators also monitor the best practices of community preventive services which report that distribution programs are effective when conducted in hospitals and clinics and are effective among both affluent and low income populations.

OTH_FOU_DM_SafeKids_6x4_5-%282%29-1

Why Car Seats?

Providing for the health care and wellness needs of a diverse and growing marketplace is important to us and helps us strive for our mission: From health care to health.

Motor vehicle injuries represent the leading cause of death among children in the U.S. (Source: NHTSA, 2008 data). Many of these deaths can be prevented. Placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.  According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the estimate of injury is reduced by 71-82%.

Larimer County was among ten counties with six or more unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities (all seat positions) in 2011.

The safety of Infants and toddlers in our community is up to us. Their parents may be aware of the requirements and benefits of placing their child in a car seat, but they cannot afford to purchase a new, safe child passenger restraint. Providing a car seat along with installation training is based on evidence that when the parents receive this instruction, they are more compliant about using the equipment for their child.

 Why Now?

Our inventory needs to be replenished frequently. The recommended time a car seat is safe to use is generally six years after the date of manufacturer. This is because clasps, release buttons, and clips wear with use. Safe Kids Larimer County does not encourage that parents use a previously used car seat.

Safe Kids Larimer County and the programming of the Community Health Improvement Department at PVH is a victim of its success. Until this year we were able to purchase the car seats with funding from the state of Colorado’s Department of Transportation. Fortunately, in Larimer County, occupant protection rates for 0-4 year-olds is at 100%; for booster seats it is 96.5 percent. As such, the high rate of compliance in our community reduced our position for receiving funding for car seats in 2013-2014.

This doesn’t mean the need is absent from our community… Every child in our community deserves to be safe with a car seat that fits them and is new, free from damage, and installed properly. On average, Safe Kids Larimer County gives $25,000 in car seats to families each year. The need is great and persistent, $11,400 will sustain the program through the end of 2014 when additional support will be necessary to continue to keep our community’s kids safe.

High School Friends Share Legacy of Giving at UCHealth Cancer Center

October 3, 2014

Kevin + Robersons

Kevin Unger, President and CEO of PVH and MCR with Daren and Ronna Roberson at the June 4th Cancer Center Ribbon Cutting

Since its inception, the UCHealth Cancer Center has united the Fort Collins community in support of the much-needed facility. Some of those involved developed new friendships through their activities in support of the cause; others were already friends and found an opportunity to create a shared legacy.   For the Rice and Roberson families, that began with a donation from Hydro-Construction to the PVH and MCR Foundation.

“We are very grateful that both families, and Hydro-Construction came forward to support the healing gardens at the cancer center,” said Gail Cumming, philanthropic giving officer at the PVH and MCR Foundation. “When we learned more about the personal history they share, their gifts became even more meaningful in terms of the journey of friendship they represent.”

Rod Rice and Daren Roberson first became friends when they met at Poudre High School in the 80s. Rod, and his now wife, Jamie, also knew Daren’s father, who was a business teacher at the school. Since high school, more than three decades later, Rod and Daren have maintained a friendship and supported each other in business and in life; in successes and losses.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest losses they have faced together was caused by cancer. Daren and his wife, Ronna Roberson lost Daren’s mother and father to cancer within months of each other; and Ronna’s mother died of lung cancer around the same time. Also touched by cancer through the death of family members, the Rices had already committed to a named space in the healing garden, a natural fit not only for the business, Hydro-Construction, in which Rod is a majority owner, but also to provide “peace and comfort” to patients facing cancer. What happened next underscores how one gift often creates a ripple effect, influencing others.

“Rodney and Daren discussed the new cancer center being built and Rod mentioned the opportunity to donate a section of the cancer center in memory of our parents,” remembers Ronna. “Our parents loved to be outside working in the yard, planting and nurturing their gardens. We liked the idea of an outdoor space with plants and a sitting area to relax.”

And so it came to be that the Robersons and the Rices have named spaces next to each other in the healing gardens. The friends who shared childhood dreams more than 30 years ago now share their desire to help others with their gifts at the UCHealth cancer center.

“Rod and Daren have shared many a fun time since high school,” said Jamie Rice, Rod’s wife. “To have spaces close to each other at the cancer center just felt right!”

Generosity Comes Full Circle

September 10, 2014

The PVH and MCR Foundation has formed a legacy society, the Circle of Caring, to honor those who have made provisions for our local hospitals in their estate plans, such as a will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement plan, or through a life income plan, such as a charitable remainder trust or a charitable lead trust.

Circle of Caring donors leave their imprint on health care at Medical Center of the Rockies and Poudre Valley Hospital through thoughtful, planned gifts from their estate. Their giving ensures that financial resources are available to continue to advance world-class health care for future generations in our community.

“Circle of Caring provides a powerful way for donors to strengthen our community’s resources and ensure that financial resources will be available to sustain the standards we provide the community,” explained Philanthropic Giving Officer at PVH and MCR Foundation, Gail Cumming, CFRE. “A planned gift can be applied to a specific program or project, such as a scholarship program or a wing of the hospital. Unless the specific cause has been identified, we use the gift in an area of most urgent need.”

Circle of Caring Spotlight – The Titus Scholarship for Nurse Leaders

For Richard G. Titus, the kindness and care he received from nurses at PVH and MCR left a long-lasting impression. So much so that he left a bequest totaling more than $520,000 to the PVH and MCR Foundation for employee scholarships. A portion of the gift is held in an endowment to support scholarships in perpetuity. The remainder established the Richard G. Titus Scholarship for Nurse Leaders. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to nursing staff employed at UCHealth in the system’s northern region that are seeking degree bachelor’s of science in nursing (BSN). The scholarship fund is directed to honor and assist those engaged in the nursing profession, and to further his lifelong passionate commitment to education.

To date, 12 nurse leader scholarships in the amount of $5,500 and six regular scholarships totaling $4,000 have been awarded. Erin Baer, a registered nurse at Cancer Care and Hematology in Fort Collins is one of the lucky and very deserving recipients. Erin had started an online program through the University of Colorado College of Nursing RN to BSN program. However, due to outstanding school loans she had to put off continuing her education. When she saw the opportunity from the Richard G. Titus Scholarship for the Nurse Leaders Scholarship she hoped the time had come to finish her degree. Her hopes came true, and she will complete her BSN program in May 2015.

Erin Bauer

Just as this nurse sees her dreams becoming reality in her long-term impact on her patients’ well being, patients who receive exceptional levels of care can make a long-term impact on the health care for the next generation. Planned gifts such as the Titus Scholarship allow the PVH and MCR Foundation to continue the circle of caring and provide ongoing support for our hospitals’ most essential resource: our people.
