The employees of Northeast Georgia Health System raised $2,388,048 through a recent campaign conducted by its employee-giving club, called W.A.T.C.H., or We Are Targeting Community Healthcare.
“By pledging more than $2.3 million, NGHS employees have set a new record and made an inspiring leap into our campaign,” said Nancy Colston, president and chief development officer of The Medical Center Foundation, in a press release. “This is a tremendous milestone in the history of The Medical Center Foundation and one that has a direct impact on the health care of our community.”
Pledges were made by more than 3,400 employees during more than 100 presentations held across the organization this summer.
W.A.T.C.H. members have given more than $7.8 million since the first W.A.T.C.H. Campaign began in 1999 to support numerous projects such as Hospice of Northeast Georgia Medical Center, community walks, nursing and allied health scholarships, a mobile simulation unit and a future wellness walkway to be constructed at Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton.
