Throughout the last 13 years, Florida State University’s (FSU) College of Medicine has supported Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) and its Foundation with their mission to lead the community to be the healthiest in the nation. To date, they have donated more than $1.5 million in equipment and resources to the Women's and Children’s Services at Tallahassee Memorial.
The Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare Foundation hosted the FSU Collegeof Medicine for an appreciation luncheon on December 1 to thank the organization for their continued support and generous donations.
While this is done through several initiatives, the FSU College of Medicine recently granted $216,000 in funds to TMH as a result of FSU’s 2016 Dance Marathon – the annual 40-hour event at FSU where more than 1,800 students stay awake and on their feet to raise money and awareness for local beneficiaries. These funds help TMH provide programs and technologies such as cooling equipment for neonatal transporters, oxygen monitoring equipment, sidecar hospital beds for easy visual and physical access to infants, prenatal breastfeeding/childbirth education classes and so much more to support babies and families in the community.
“The relationship with FSU’s College of Medicine and Dance Marathon has always been very good – and this year the relationship went from very good to great!” said Connie Styons, the Women’s and Children’s Service Line Administrator at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare. “The generous grants help provide state of the art equipment for newborns and older children requiring healthcare intervention.”
This past December, Foundation colleagues and members of the Women’s and Children’s Services team at TMH organized a special luncheon to demonstrate to the FSU College of Medicine and Dance Marathon how their donations impact our community.
